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 McLaren, Sir Henry and Folgers:

McLaren (41059) Everyday is #tongueouttuesday for McLaren! This amazingly sweet 10-year-old boroughbred is looking for a home to call his own. Can it be yours? Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street.

Folgers  (37287) A volunteer writes: Hey New York, Folgers has a question for you: Why hasn't anyone come to adopt him? This young silver-gray boy has been at the Care Center for almost a month, and he's done everything right: He's consistently been easygoing with visitors and volunteers, and he scored well on his behavior exam, earning praise for leaning into petting sessions and allowing all handling. Folgers comes to us from a home, and he did well with the other cats in the household and even got on with the dog in the house. When I met him he was happily using his scratch pad while engaging me with his soft, warm eyes. I can't figure out why he's still bunking in the cat adoption room, and neither can he. Folgers is friendly, comfortable with people, and knows his manners--and he has so much love to give. Come meet this handsome little man today! Available for adoptions at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street.

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.

Sir Henry  (40559) Meet Sir Henry, the perfect beginner bun at Brooklyn ACC! Sir Henry loves to cuddle, stand on his hind legs, and most of all, eat treats! Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Boulevard, 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.)
