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 BlueBlue, Opy and Khalees:

Blue Blue (# 86015)  A volunteer writes: With a face so nice we named him twice, 7 year-old Blue Blue is a sight for the sorest eyes. And speaking of - if there are a more stunning set of peepers than those framed by this freckled face, well I've not had the pleasure of seeing them. Blue Blue is a lovely walker, trotting his compact, dappled frame right out in front on a cool but sunny day. And when asked to sit, he did so without question. Looks and manners to boot! What a catch. We're told Blue Blue previously lived with children and another large breed, female pup. Also that he's prone to chasing kitties if around so no "meows" please for our Blue x 2 at this time. Our Blue Blue is a bit shy initially with strangers, preferring a calm and slow approach with new friends, so an experienced and patient family might be best for this handsome fellow. With a face so nice we named our twice, our Blue Blue also has twice the love to give. Come gaze into those peepers today. Blue Blue is waiting in adoptions at Brooklyn ACC.

Opy (# 81637)  A  volunteer writes: Opy is a super cuddly, very friendly girl. She has a healthy and easy going curiosity. Opy looked around at everyone and everything and seemed to enjoy all the activity. She loves as much attention as you can give her, so give her lots – she’s a genuine love bug. Visit Opy today and witness the love happen between you.

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.

Khaleesi (# 78961)  A volunteer writes: Khaleesi: "Whuut diyu zey? Me: "I know, Khaleesi, it is not easy talking when you have your mouth stuffed with cilantro, but I said I need to write something about you that describes you well for your new family." Khaleesi: "I am super cute. I am a master eater of cilantro. I make the highest binkies in the bunny room. I am smart. I want to learn tricks. I want to play games. I like bunny puzzles. I want to run and hop. I will watch TV with you. I will cuddle with you. I want to be loved. I will love you forever."

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.)
