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 Umbreon, Brownie and Thumper:

Umbreon (39571) An ACC Volunteer Writes: "Umbreon is named for a cute creature from the Pokemon video game, and it fits this wonderful gentleman of a cat perfectly. Our Umbreon is a mellow sleepyhead who likes to curl up in his loft and isn't bothered by all the volunteers who drop by to admire his snow-white coat with the dark and orange highlights. Umbreon arrived at the Care Center without a backstory. But considering that he purred and head-butted our medical staff when he first came in and then continued displaying a deep love of affection during his behavior exam, my guess is that he's a former house pet who has been very socialized well with humans. Calm, quiet, social, and sweet, Umbreon is hoping to make his time on 110th Street short and get back into a loving home ASAP. Come meet this awesome boy today!” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street, New York

Brownie (aka MJ Nike - 22510) Meet Manhattan ACC’s Brownie! And before you ask, yes, he is just as sweet as the dessert! ACC staff and volunteers have been observing his social behavior in the shelter and think he would be a good fit for any type of family! Stop by and meet him today! Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street, New York.

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.

Thumper (45508) An ACC  volunteer writes: “Meet Thumper! Thumper is a friendly and very social rabbit who would make a great bunny for a first time adopter. If curiosity killed rabbits, Thumper may be in a bit of trouble as he loves to explore and has studied the life of Houdini in utmost detail. Each time I opened the door to the play pen, he attempted a little escape. He graciously agreed to be taken back inside to continue playing and cuddling. I can see him helping you unpack the grocery bags to investigate what you brought back from the produce section for his dinner. He will also happily help you and your friends and family to become healthier snackers!” 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.)
