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 Missy, Minnie and Jack:

Missy (45141) Are you ready for Halloween? Because Missy certainly is! This beautiful boroughbred is ready to strut around the neighborhood showing off her favorite costumes! 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. 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.

Jack (43487) An ACC Volunteer Writes: “ack is a genuine "Ginger." This medium-haired orange Tabby has beautiful almond shaped amber eyes. His extra long whiskers and a folded ear, make him unique and utterly adorable. When Jack saw me, he went right up to the front of his condo. I opened the door and he stretched out. What a big boy. What a hunk of burning love. Jack was generous with head butts and cheek rubs. He purred non-stop and I scratched the top of his head. He became a big mush! He kept rolling his head in my hands. Jack LOVES being petted! I gave him a toy and he was a delight. So playful! This cat still thinks he's a kitten. If you want a special, one-of-a-kind cat, Jack is the one for you.” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110thStreet, New York.

Minnie (42797) An ACC  volunteer writes: “Minnie is a large white bunny with light brown markings. This lovely bunny was not properly cared for by her former people, because she's quite overweight (nothing a proper diet and exercise can't fix). She doesn't hold any prior neglect against new people at all, however! Minnie will dance around her cage to get your attention, and when she does she'll hunker right down for lots of petting. In fact, you could characterize her as rather needy and demanding; she will definitely need to be the center of attention at all times in her new home. Minnie may have a bit of Lionhead blood, because she has cute longer tufts of fur between her ears. She also sports a cute dewlap!” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110thStreet, New York.

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.
