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 Storm, Tyson and Kuzco:

Storm (54231) An ACC volunteer writes: ”What you see is what you get, a lively and happy bundle bouncing like a jack in the box in front of your marveling eyes. Storm is a small and adorable middle aged gal, a dark chocolate diamond who always seems to have a smile in store to display as soon as she sees a friend. She is a great little walker, a perfect sitter, a big tail wagger, a dutiful treats sampler and a noisy little lap dog when she is being petted. Storm loves company, going from one person to another, seeking attention and love. I would never miss a visit with Storm when I am at the care center. She is fun to be with, heartwarming and sooooo cute! Come and meet her for yourself. You will fall in love and take her home in a heartbeat. Storm is waiting for you at the Manhattan Care Center!” Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.  

Tyson (54702) An ACC volunteer writes: “Tyson - don't let the name fool you. She is a feminine, lighthearted, curious kitty; and although full bodied, quite a sprite.  Stop by and give her the happiness, affection, and warmth that a loving home can offer.” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 E 110th Street, Manhattan.   

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.

Kuzco (51377) An ACC staff member writes: “Our Kuzco does not turn into various animals, - he is simply the hippest bunny dude in creation and it suits him so well!. Kuzco knows the importance and value of friends and family - what he needs is a friend or family that will love him forever as he has so much love to give. Kuzco is a calm and friendly rabbit gem in his best middle years - do not let that fool you, he is a game master in the pen, loving crunchy tunnels and exploring new toys while equally loving gentle head rubs. Kuzco would do well with any new friend(s) or family who understand "bunny" - he loves playing on the floor, human attention, and being served his food on time. He just wants to be you new best friend as he values friends and family so much”  Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.   

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.)
