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 Rayne, Lola & Missy:

Rayne (27325) An ACC Volunteer writes: "Don't rain on my parade! But with this velvety hippo you'll never have need for an umbrella again. 6 year-old Rayne is a dumpling of a girl filled with sugar, spice, and everything nice and topped with an award-winning smile. "Chunky monkey!" fellow volunteer exclaims as Rayne waddles happily out of her kennel. And while yes Rayne may be one of our curvier gals at about 80 lbs that's just more of her to love. Once outside Rayne is content nibble on snacks and snort in your ear then scratch an itch with a good loll in the grass. And if you think 80 pound pups can't be lap dogs, well then you've obviously never met Rayne. Rayne's previous owner notes she lived with a young child and also a cat whom she mostly ignored. She would do best with an experienced family who, based on some reactivity observed in the shelter, will make Rayne their one and only pup, the sole furry apple of their eye. April showers bring May flowers and this May brought the prettiest flower of them all. A velvety hippo with an award-winning smile just looking for a lap all her own. Rayne (#27325) is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) New York, NY 10029.

Lola (24853) Meet Lola! This beautiful boroughbred bun is just aching for a home that will let her run around and play. That’s right, Lola LOVES to play. Don’t worry — once she’s expended all of her energy, she turns into the mushiest, cuddliest bun around! Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Boulevard, Brooklyn NY 11208.

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.

Missy (27994) An ACC Volunteer Writes: "It's Missy! I wasn't sure if this beautiful boroughbred would up for head scratches, as she initially stayed towards the back of her kennel. She slowly crept forward and started inspecting my hand, and before I knew it, she dove in head first for some head-scratch-lovin'! Stop by Manhattan ACC and adopt this amazing girl today!” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) New York, NY 10029.

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.
