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 animals 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 Mochi, Faith & Shadow:

Mochi (20921) An ACC Volunteer Writes: “Is this not the cutest bun-bun alive?! She has a tiny white button nose surrounded by a circle of black that fades into a silvery brown-colored coat. She was at the front of her kennel with that button-nose pressed through the bars. I opened the door, of course, and she stretched full out for a leisurely petting session. Something I've never seen before in a rabbit -- when I pet and scratched her between the hocks, she lifted her back legs up in a yoga pose, just the way dogs and cats do to let you know you've hit the sweet spot. Since bunnies (like horses) have eyes on the sides of their faces, rather than a forward-facing straight gaze, it's sometimes hard to gauge what their thinking. Mochi, though, is one of the most expressive bun-pups I've ever met. Prepare to be charmed.” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) New York, NY 10029. Learn more about Mochi HERE.

Faith (22842) Brought in as a stray, we do not know much about Faith’s past. What we do know is that she has the entire staff at Manhattan ACC absolutely smitten! She is sweet, social, adorable, well-behaved, and looking for her forever home at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) New York, NY 10029. Learn more about Faith HERE.

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.

Shadow (22790) Meet Shadow, the perfect little black-panther available for adoption! True to his name, Shadow’s loves to follow you around and occasionally perch on your shoulder! He is friendly, affectionate, mellow, and looking for a new shoulder on which to perch… can that be yours? Available for adoption at 2336 Linden Boulevard Brooklyn NY 11208. Learn more about Shadow HERE.

If you’re interested in one of the animals featured here, email ACC’s Adoption team at adoption@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.)
