NEW YORK (1010WINS) 1010 WINS has teamed up with Animal Care Centers of New York City to let you know about some of the adoptable #Boroughbreds looking for loving homes in the city's shelters, and, where ACC's mobile adoption units are headed with even more great pets.

This week, we're featuring Jules, Marlow and Huckleberry Pie:

Jules (55288) ”Hello, my name is Jules and I am a happy and friendly dog. I love to run around in the yard and play fetch! I love playing with my toys. I am the kind of dog who really likes to have fun. There just isn't enough time in one day to do all the fun things that I like to do. I am located at The Staten Island Care Center, so why not stop by and have some fun meeting me today.” Available for adoption at Staten Island ACC: 3139 Veterans Road West, Staten Island.

Marlow (15818) An ACC volunteer writes: “Talk about a warm welcome! Talk about an eager beaver for love! He rubbed his head against my hand like an ox, over and over, until I gave him some tasty food. He's what we call a social eater - having company makes him enjoy his meal more (makes perfect sense). He insisted that I continue to pet him as he dined, and if I stopped, his head came out of the bowl and pushed against my hand until the petting resumed. Marlow is a handsome tiger tabby whose presence fills the room. When someone asked me, which cat was the "most fun," I didn't hesitate to tell them, Marlow! He's your ticket. Come on by and cash it in” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 E 110th Street, Manhattan.   

Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is the only open-admissions animal shelter in New York City and takes in approximately 30,000 animals every year.

Huckleberry Pie (55282) An ACC staff member writes: “Ingredients for Huckleberry Pie: 2 1/4 cups of cuteness, 1/2 teaspoon of mischief, 1/2 cup of happiness, 6 tablespoons of devotion, 1 cup sweetness, 1 teaspoon sincerity, 5 cups of love. Easy-peasy lemon squeezy!" she said when I asked her how she managed to become such an adorable rabbit. Huckleberry Pie is a beautiful large lop bunny who is just waiting to show you what she is really made of. Huckleberry Pie loves to play, snuggle, eat hay and greens, and is easy and outgoing. She is looking for a human with the right ingredients to become her best friend forever - come meet her in the bunny room in Brooklyn"  Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.
