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 meet Lawson, Kuzco and Cheetara:

Lawson (51943) An ACC volunteer writes: ”Are we at the zoo? I see two hippos at the care center! One of them is Lawson, a tanky silvery gent waddling - at slow or high speed - through the streets or the yard. Lawson is a debonair pooch with gentle golden eyes and a waggy tail. He seems at ease wherever he goes providing he has company. He comes when called, sits on command and waits expectantly for my buttered ciabatta that he favors over even the best doggy treats. Lawson appreciates caresses and enjoys the smooching of his spongy face. He is a really gentle and sweet guy! Our spunky low rider would love to get to know you and is waiting for you at the Manhattan Care Center!”Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 E 110th St, Manhattan.  

Kuzco (51377) An ACC volunteer writes: " Our Kuzco does not turn into various animals, - he is simply the hippest bunny dude in creation and it suits him so well!. Kuzco knows the importance and value of friends and family - what he needs is a friend or family that will love him forever as he has so much love to give. Kuzco is a calm and friendly rabbit gem in his best middle years - do not let that fool you, he is a game master in the pen, loving crunchy tunnels and exploring new toys while equally loving gentle head rubs. Kuzco would do well with any new friend(s) or family who understand "bunny" - he loves playing on the floor, human attention, and being served his food on time. He just wants to be you new best friend as he values friends and family so much.” Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.   

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.

Cheetara (51546) An ACC staff member writes: “‘Cheetara is as sweet as can be! She likes to keep to herself but when you come to say hi you can see the twinkle in her eyes. Cheetara has not played with any of the toys that I presented to her. Maybe you have something that will interest her? Cheetara is located at our Staten Island Care Center, so why not drop in and say hello to this beautiful cat today.” Available for adoption at Staten Island ACC: 3139 Veterans Road West, Staten Island.
