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 Sasha, Ash and Marlow.

Sasha (67377) An ACC Volunteer writes: “It was those cute freckled ears and that funny little under-bite that first drew me to Sasha; but it was that sweet personality that made me fall in love! Everything about Sasha is just so soft and gentle...from the way she calmly stood next to me in a half-dreamy state as I slowly rubbed her cheeks; to the tender way she stood up and leaned into me for doggie hugs (complete with thank-you kisses); to the easy way she walked on a leash. She loves treats and (not surprisingly) takes them very gently. Sasha's previous family described her as friendly, affectionate, and playful; and tells us she's housebroken, too (and she's kept up her good habits at the shelter). Though Sasha can sometimes be a bit shy when first meeting new people, she warms up pretty quickly. This big, beautiful girl has become a favorite with staff and volunteers, and I think she'll be a favorite with you, too...so come and meet her today at the Brooklyn ACC shelter where she's patiently awaiting her fur-ever home!" Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.

Ash/Madre (62664) A volunteer writes: Ash is a sweet and gentle boy who loves to meet new people. He stands right up to greet visitors and happily leans into pets. Ash is definitely on the calmer side and you may see him cheerfully observing the happenings at the Care Center, but he loves to be included and always seems delighted when people come by and visit. Ash is looking for his forever family at the moment and he just might be the right one for you!” 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.

Marlow (71825) An ACC volunteer writes: "Hop on in the Bunny Bus! Next stop… Marlow’s forever home! Marlow is a 1-year-old Brooklyn boroughbred who is as sweet as can be. Stop by the Brooklyn ACC bunny room and adopt Marlow today!" !” Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.
