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 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 Shuri, Cheesecake and Theo:

Shuri (21242) If you’ve seen Black Panther, then you know how amazing Shuri is. Shuri at ACC might not be exactly the same as Shuri from the movie, but we’d argue that she has an even bigger heart! Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) New York, NY 10029. Learn more about Shuri HERE.

Cheesecake (21443) An ACC Volunteer writes: “So quiet in her kennel, her tail starts to wag as I unlatch her door. Easily leashed we head outside where going potty was her first priority so she is likely housebroken. Showing off lovely leash manners, CC (I give nicknames to all my friends) ignores other dogs we pass on our walk. As we walk I get a chance to admire her pristine coat, and pleasantly round figure; she's clearly been well taken care of before joining us.

Off leash in a pen she's happy to join me on the bench, snuggling close, and although a bit shy giving kisses, and when I invited her down to play she let me know cuddling on the bench was her first choice! So sweet! And sweet is the operative word here, as she's soft and easy, happy to make a new human friend. Although she was a bit anxious when she first joined us, it's noted in her behavior assessment that "Dog leans into the assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth".

CC is meltingly delicious, ready to find her place by your side, forever, and ever and ever.” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) New York, NY 10029. Learn more about Cheesecake 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.

Theo (11646) An ACC Volunteer writes: “Theo is a spunky, fun-loving bun who loves to run around, binky in the air and zestily enjoy a good rabbit chew toy. Of course, Theo is also down to relax and enjoy some human affection, after he's had a nice run-around.” Available for adoption at 2336 Linden Boulevard Brooklyn NY 11208. Learn more about Theo HERE.

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.

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.)
