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 Cabbage, Jackson and Noble:

Cabbage (# 85250)  A volunteer writes: What do you get when a walrus and a vegetable have a baby? Me! Cabbage! Volunteers say I remind them of a walrus because my front flippers point outwards when I'm sitting as if I'm in ballet's first position. Speaking of sitting, I am a master at the commands "sit" and "give paw." My tusks don't even get in the way when I take my reward snacks from you gently. I am pretty good about doing my business outside, love to lean in and get petting from my new friends at the care center, and despite my blubbery size, easy to handle on leash. I'm looking for a home that's ready to give me lots of exercise, and since I love to greet new friends by gently jumping up on them, I'd probably do best in a home without small kids. If you have a beach...err I mean couch, I can chill on, ask to meet me today!

Jackson (# 42090) A staff member writes: “Big boy Jackson is a confident and handsome cat who just needs the right person to come and love him. He is very friendly even with his sass. He is a cat who can have a catitude, so come visit him at Staten Island ACC!”

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.

Noble (# 84131) Noble the boroughbred bun says "Hey! You! Yeah, you. Stop what you're doing and come adopt me at Manhattan ACC. I'm sweet as can be, love carrots (but only as treats!), just turned 1, and need a new home! Can that home be yours?"

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.)
