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 Tego, Pi and Blinky:

Tego (72032) An ACC volunteer writes: “Tego is truly one of the funniest pups I've ever met! This senior pup is not only cute as a button, but is sharp as a whip! Tego knows "give paw" and makes a face that seems to say, "Oh, how easy it is to amuse these humans!" He's very sweet and friendly... wiggling into me and seeming to want to crawl into my lap, but not quite sure if he'd fit. He previously lived with two dogs, and has done well during playgroup at the shelter. We're told that he's housebroken, and he's kept up his good habits. Tego also knows the cue for "sit", walked nicely on a leash, and has the energy of a pup half his age. Sure, he's a handsome boy; but it's his amusing personality that has so captivated me! Come and meet this sweet, enchanting boy today at the Brooklyn ACC shelter, where he's patiently awaiting his fur-ever home!” Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd.

Pi (71031) A volunteer writes: “What a welcome! She jumped down from her shelf and started purring and chats with you. She has a sweet meow and just wants all your attention. She is adorable in that she drinks her water off her paw. She puts the paw in the water and brings it to her mouth. Cute.” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th St.

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.

Blinky (74230) A volunteer writes: “Blinky(ieee), do you remember me? Blinky(ieee). Oh yes, she does and she does what she does best, snuggle up with me immediately. What else does she do besides wanting to cuddle? Eat cilantro in a manner that shows her cute teeth. And can you see the heart around her nose while she is so happily snacking on that herb? Conclusion: if you need a cuddly bunny lady who wears her heart on her nose and if you are willing to provide plenty of cilantro and fresh hay, we have a match made in heaven. Come meet this georgeous lady bug at the care center in Brooklyn and fall in love! P.S.: Make sure to wear your heart on your nose, so she knows who you are!” Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd.
