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 Ty, Robin and Star:

Ty (53026) An ACC volunteer writes: ”Who's got four paws and loves absolutely everyone? This guy! Ty previously shared a home with adults, kids, dogs both large and small AND a cat and he got along fabulously with them all. Described as tolerant with the kids and relaxed and playful with his four-legged siblings, Ty's former owner's favorite thing about him is 'how friendly he is with everyone, especially children' and here at the Care Center he's maintained his social graces and won us all over with his joyful, energetic spirit. A good leash walker who takes care of business outdoors, Ty already knows how to come and sit on command, is crate trained (but well-behaved with the door left open) and happy to share his toys or food and he's even cool with grooming and bath time-what a champ! His favorite toys are anything fetchable and his favorite snack is 'anything with peanut butter' so you know just what to bribe him with when it's time to learn a new trick. Visit the Manhattan Care and ask to meet our very own Mr Congeniality, Ty will be waiting to welcome you with open paws!” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 E 110th St, Manhattan.  

Robin (52922) An ACC volunteer writes: "The Brooklyn Care Center rabbits love to rock 'n roll and cover old songs. One of their favorite ones is "Rockin' Robin" (first performed in 1958 by Bobby Day) and it goes like this: "She rocks on her shelf top all day long, Hoppin' and a-boppin' and singing her song, All the little bunnies on Shelter Street, Love to hear the Robin tweet (with) her feet". Robin tap dances manically when they sing that song. What else to say about Robin? Besides loving rock 'n roll and tap dancing, she really enjoys gentle head rubs -- she will not sit still for very long just yet -- partly due to her young age and partly due to her just having a lot of energy, but she is a brave and curious soul who will check you out and blossom into a best friend. Come meet Robin in the rabbit room for some serious bunny rock” Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.   

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.

Star (53032) An ACC staff member writes: “If it's true that stars are made, not born, we have big-league material here. Take one part adorable, young, gray tabby, add two parts of having lived happily with four other cats, and finish with three parts of having lived in a home where she followed her people around and liked to sit on them, as well as play with toys and balls and strings. Voila, a Star is made. But you will have to do a little work, too; she's been shy and nervous in the unfamiliar environment of the Care Center (not surprising), but with the right coaching, she will surely shine for you, too.”  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.)
