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 #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 Menino, Reuben & Sauce. Plus, scroll down for special promotion:

LET'S FIND REUBEN A HOME!  This awesome bunny is the longest-stay rabbit at ACC so please consider adopting Reuben or share this post so we can help find him a forever home!

Reuben (21328) An ACC Volunteer Writes: "Reuben is an extra-large New Zealand White with great big ears. This guy is oodles of bun to love, but he's not for the faint of heart! Reuben is a very energetic and strong boy. He gets very excited at the prospect of "out time," and will practically burst out of his cage to achieve his goal. Once he's free, he's much happier and easier to handle - and if he's in the mood, he'll even settle down for some affection. Reuben will need a lot of space in his habitat and a ton of time out for exercise. He'd probably also benefit from a calmer bunny partner.” Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, 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.

Sauce (31405) Meet Sauce! Sauce is the low-riding, perfectly-tempered, big-headed, toy-loving, stuff-to-the-brim-with-love Brooklyn boroughbred. Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn NY 11208.

Menino (29718) An ACC Volunteer Writes: "I was a fan of Menino when I saw him on the website. I have to say he is even cuter when I met him. He is friendly right away. He enjoys massages, playing with toys, and giving hugs. He has very distinct fur patterns that sets him apart. In sum, he is a remarkably beautiful and sweet cat." Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Boulevard, Brooklyn NY 11208.
