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 Pumkin, Pistachio and Cory:

Pumkin (#79452) A volunteer writes: “Quiet, sweet, and slightly shy, this lovely lady took a minute or two to decide I was okay. Once the ice was broken, Pumkin settled in contentedly next to me. She enjoyed all types of petting but was especially partial to head scratches, which caused her to lean way over, and she tilted her head up to enjoy some chin rubs. This amiable senior kitty has a cute pink nose and very pretty green eyes. Come to Brooklyn ACC to meet laid-back Pumkin.”

Pistachio (#77069) A volunteer writes: “Pistachio! Oh, am I nuts over this sweet, cinnamon boy. The first thing you should know about this angelic gentleman is that while he may be a distinguished 9 years young, he is absolutely young at heart. And speaking of - the key to sweet P's heart is yellow, round and fuzzy. That's right! For this boy, ball is life. He runs, he hops, he dives, he dips! And funniest of all, carries one ball gently across the yard in his mouth while trying to scoop another in. And I dare you to not feel like a kid again yourself watching this joyful soul lose himself in play, his crinkled eyes smiling into the sun. Seniors are our favorites, and this sugar-faced sweetheart is one of the best of the best, happy to sit at your feet and let your rub his velvet ears. There's no better combo than playful and mellow, silly and sweet, and no better gift than a senior's love. Oh, am I nuts over this sweet, cinnamon boy! And trust me - you will be too. Pistachio is waiting in adoptions at Brooklyn ACC.”

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.

Cory (#78294) A volunteer writes: “I did not know that snuggle-bugs existed until after I met Cory. What a loving girl and so, so beautiful on top of that! All Cory wanted to do during her time in the play pen was cuddle with me, get head pets and just be close. If you want a bunny who really likes people, consider adding Cory as a member of your family. Cory told me she would love nothing more than having a family of her own and maybe even a bunny friend. Given Cory's calm and friendly nature, she will not only make a great family pet, but could also be a promising candidate for a neutered male bunny seeking a bunny girl friend. Adopt Cory at Brooklyn ACC!”

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.
