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:

Nemo (58262) A volunteer writes: Nemo presents as one calm, cool and collected giant dude, even sitting in a kennel. On our way out for a walk, a staffer stops to pat him on the head and raves about how he's the friendliest dog in the world -- and such a good "uncle" to a puppy upstairs. Well, of course. And how could anyone resist this boxer-esque face with droopy eyes and faded freckles? An easygoing gentleman, Nemo quickly shows how he walks nicely and briskly on a leash, considers everyone he meets his best friend, and is happy to just sit and hang out at your feet. On a park bench, he thought (wrongly) that he might actually fit in my lap. His previous family described him as relaxed, respectful, highly social, affectionate and playful -- the perfect package! He lived with a child and a dog and obviously knew love in his life. He isn't very tempted by toys but he leans in when it's time for petting and stays glued to my side in the play yard. This big lug doesn't need a lot -- just a place where he can count on some good lovin' as he heads into his golden years. Meet Nemo at the Manhattan Animal Care Center, 326 East 110th Street.

Lolo (57809) A volunteer writes: Black and white perfection is what you will find in Lolo! Sweet and eager to cuddle , she will purr until the cows come home. Meet Lolo at the Manhattan Animal Care Center, 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. 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.

Bobos (58002) A volunteer writes: Ap-paws, Ap-paws, Ap-paws -- here comes Bobos, the fastest rabbit in the world! Bobos is a young Dutch bunny, full of energy and cute mischief. If he is not busy running at 30 miles an hour, he will happily jump into your lap for close investigation of humans, and to maybe steal a treat, some cilantro, or some cuddles. It is so much fun hanging out on the floor with Bobos, watching his antics and his happy-go-lucky energy. I just had to smile at him, and you know what? He smiled back! If you have the time and space for a bunny that just loves to free-roam and play, come meet our bunderful Bobos at the Care Center in Brooklyn, at 2336 Linden Boulevard.

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 ID number, 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.)
