NEW YORK (1010 WINS) 1010 WINS teams 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 Kendrick, Mumu and Lucious:

Kendrick (ID# 21226 - in ACC foster home) Kendrick's ACC Foster writes: Kendrick is a very sweet dog. He is content just lounging around the house or getting you to play with him with his rope toy. He loves stuffed squeaky toys and gnawing on bones and pig ears. He also loves his giant Kong filled with treats that he has to work at to get his reward. Although he is a senior dog, he likes to play like a puppy. If you think that family might be yours, please contact the foster team at fosters@nycacc.org.

Mumu (ID# 42619 - in ACC Foster home) A volunteer writes: Mumu has lots of energy and is very playful. She likes to pat your hands with her paws, and is in search of someone who also wants to play! Her black silky fur and gorgeous green eyes make her a very striking cat! Thanks for checking out my bio! ACC staff and volunteers have been observing my social behavior in the shelter and think I would be a good fit for any type of family! If you think that family might be yours, please contact the foster team at fosters@nycacc.org.

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. ACC’s  three Care Centers in Manhattan (326 East 110th Street), Brooklyn (2336 Linden Boulevard), and Staten Island (3139 Veterans Road West) are open for adoptions 12pm-8pm Monday thru Friday, and 10am-6pm Saturdays and Sundays.

Lucious (ID# 44627)  A volunteer writes: Since I met Lucious, delightful is written deLUCIOUSful. Did you know Lucious means "light"? If you are the person who always sees the light at the end of the tunnel, Lucious may be the right bunny for you. Lucious came to us as a stray, and somewhere, this little grey sweetheart got into trouble with someone who injured his nose. The remains of that encounter will likely be seen for the rest of his life. But that will never stop Lucious. What a big sweet bunny soul in a tiny gray body. And those eyes! Lucious knows how to see the light at the end of the tunnel, is very playful during pen time and enjoys being groomed. He even climbed me during play time, curious about who I was. He has a good appetite, loves toys, and is just deLUCIOUSful. Come meet Lucious in the rabbit room at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Boulevard!

If you’re interested in one of the animals featured here, email ACC’s Adoption team at adoption@nycacc.org with the animal’s name and “A#”, or head directly to the Care Center where the animal is located. Please note, animals featured here may already be placed by the time you arrive, but there are hundreds of great cats, dogs, and rabbits looking for loving homes every day! You can view available animals online, and at the Care Centers, ACC Adoption Counselors will help you find the best match.

You can also meet your new best friend at ACC’s Mobile Adoption Center, which travels throughout the city. (Note: dates and locations are subject to change. Information will be updated as quickly as possible.  Also check http://nycacc.org/Events.htm)
