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.

Plus, ACC has your chance to get your 'pet fix' with its new 'BoroughBreak' program, which pairs members of the community with shelter dogs for field trips. Outings can last from one hour to all day, and can include a hike, a trip to the beach, a fun car ride, a long nap in a home or even a nice dinner in a pet-friendly restaurant.

The #BoroughBreak program was created in order to help reduce kennel stress and provide dogs with enrichment and increased visibility. Outings give the shelter valuable insight on how the dogs behave outside a shelter environment. It's also a great excuse to spend a day doing something new or exploring New York City. Participants are not required to have any prior canine-handling experience. Leashes, dog collars, and treats will be provided by ACC. Those interested in getting involved with 'ACC Boroughbreaks' can go to the Manhattan location at 326 East 110th Street anytime between 10AM - Noon on Saturday, May 25.

This week, we're featuring Toby, Babygirl and McCall:

Toby (60755) An ACC Volunteer Writes: ""Toby loves attention, but is also relaxed and mellow. He'll play with a toy sometimes, but he won't run all over your house going crazy. He's a sweet and calm baby. He also is a curious little kitty! When first opening my bedroom door and letting him explore the living room, he was so interested in exploring. Whether it's a new place or a new person, he may be hesitant at first, but quickly faces his fears and enjoys meeting new people and seeing new things! A volunteer says:"I thought only dogs shook hands. Not anymore! Toby, the grey tabby, is a living example of a call-boy and expert hand/paw shaker. He is a cute youngster, eager to meet and greet and I am sure that he will add fun, life and love to your days if you adopt him! Toby is a very attractive little mensch, smart and friendly who is waiting at the Manhattan Care Center to be all yours!” Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.   

Babygirl (62891) An ACC Volunteer writes: “ I was told that Baby Girl was very shy. I did notice but only for a minute. She entered into a playful mode very quickly when she realized I was a friend loaded with toys and treats. Wow! Baby Girl was all out! She so loves to play and gets so excited, running, jumping and nicely retrieving and releasing every single toy or ball I throw for her. She has a huge smile. The timid girl is history! Baby Girl is such a pretty and petite gal, a bit thin but smartly dressed and lively. She is a good walker, likely house trained if given the chance to hit the street and attuned to her caretaker's cues. She is selective in her choice of four legged friends, I guess just like we are with our peers. Baby Girl is a charming young lady who loves our company and dreams to be once again a cherished family dog. Come and meet her soon at the Manhattan Care Center!" 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.

McCall (62536) An ACC volunteer writes: "Me when I met McCall for the first time: "Hey, I just met you and this is crazy; But here's my number, so call me maybe....." McCall's reaction to my sing-a-long to Carly Rae Jepsen's 2012 hit: "Me will!" And that is what this bunny does -- calling people for audition in search of a family and not shy about it at all. With that determination come 3.5 pounds of absolute cuteness, friendliness, playfulness and a big bunny heart. Will you pick up the phone for McCall and come to the rabbit room in Brooklyn for an audition? Maybe McCall will get lucky and he can go home with you" Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.
