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 King Hobart, Tobi and Rayita:

King Hobart (48327) An ACC volunteer writes:” All hail His Grace, King Hobart of House Barkratheon, First of His Name, King of the Goodboys™, Lord of the Five Boroughs, and Protector of NYC. King Hobart is a really sweet and affection young boy. It takes little to please him. A toy and some butt scratches is enough to keep him happy all day. It's like watching your favorite TV show once he gets a toy. You just can't take your eyes off of him. If you're interested in having him be the king of your heart, then come meet him here at the Manhattan Animal Care Center.” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 E 110th St, Manhattan.  

Watch King Hobart doing "sit" like a good boy!

Tobi (51668) An ACC volunteer writes: "Elegant Toby loves to play with her toy mice, and she has the most delightful play-time mannerisms. While playing, she may lightly rest one paw on your hand as if to say, "Relax, I got this." Toby is fun, confident, and playful -- come meet this glittering girl today!” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 E 110th St, 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. 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.

Rayita (51365) An ACC volunteer writes: “‘Rayita means "little line" and our Rayita has a super cute white line running down her nose on her otherwise smokey grey sweet bunny face. She is an extraordinarily beautiful rabbit princess who is dreaming of her forever castle in a charming human home. Rayita loves exploring new spaces and rarely settles down during her play time in the pen. She gives it her best, hopping and dancing to the beats of the shelter band, checking out visitors, and rubbing her pretty white-lined nose over my hands to beg for some pets. Hop on over to the Animal Care Center in Brooklyn for some playtime with Rayita - I bet you will fall in love with her as quickly as I did.” Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.  

If you’re interested in one of the animals featured here, email ACC’s Adoption team at adopt@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.  View an Interactive adoption event at http://nycacc.org/adoptionevents.)
