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 Lovelace, Brooklyn and Ballwin:

Lovelace (61672) An ACC Volunteer Writes: "Lovelace is just as pretty as can be, a senior sprite with hopeful eyes, a heart full of love and a lap snuggling technique that suggests she's had plenty of practice winning folks over and really, who are we to resist? Though a bit shy upon meeting strangers, she warms up quickly and by the end of our first date was a grinning golden blur running circles around a fellow volunteer, her tail wagging eagerly as she waited for the signal that it was time for a stroll round the neighborhood. She's a good girl on leash and seems house trained too and you won't find a less reactive companion when it comes to other dogs, Lovelace simply breezes on by like they're not even there! Sweet, petite and already spayed and ready to leave today, this adorable gal is keen to find a forever family to lavish with all the familiar love and loyalty only an experienced pet can offer. Do yourself a favor and ask to meet her at our Manhattan Care Center, Lovelace will be waiting with open paws”  Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 E 110th Street, Manhattan.

Brooklyn (61947) An ACC Volunteer writes: "Is this not the purest, whitest, snowball you have ever seen? Brooklyn gives the color white a whole new and vibrant dimension. And then, add to that his lime-gold piercing eyes. Not only is he solid colored, but he is a solid, robust boy, calm and confident, one you want to take home to meet the folks. When I knocked on his kennel door, he got up leisurely, took a good stretch, and sauntered over to give me a nose-kiss greeting. Then he laid his head in my hand while I tickled his chin. When he started drinking his water by dipping his paw into the bowl, that sealed the deal; I was thoroughly enchanted. Come over and meet him, and you will be, too" 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. 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.

Ballwin (63948) An ACC volunteer writes: " Do you like to win at ball games? Well, we have your permanent win -- Ballwin is a ball of cuteness and an absolute winner! Although he may generally prefer hay over balls, once I got that treat ball out, he went after it like a real soccer champion. Baldwin came to us as a stray, so there is not much we know about his history. What I do know is that he will win your heart in seconds and you will never want to let go. What better way to start the summer season than with a new best friend to hop around your house and entertain you with adorable binkies and nose bumps?" 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.)
