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 Chocolate, Lorenzo and Acorn:

Chocolate (ID# 76478) A volunteer writes: I never met a chocolate I did not like! Our Chocolate is no exception! She is so beautiful in her vibrant brandy colored dress, her eyes are searching mine at times, looking for comfort when I stroke her neck and back. Chocolate wants so much to experience peace and love and dreams to find that special person who will make her see the world through a happier lens. Chocolate could really be the four legged friend you have been longing for! Come and meet her soon at the Manhattan Care Center.

Lorenzo (ID# 79627)  A volunteer writes: When I approached Lorenzo, a lovely tangerine gal came right out of her cubby and down to the main level to greet me and to see just what was happening in her part of the 'hood. When I came a little closer she gave a bit of a grimace. Close, but not too close, she said. Ahh, ok, I said. But then, when I put her special food into her cubby she moved into high gear, eating with great focus and gusto. I no longer existed, at least for the moment. So, Lorenzo is one of those more independent gals who sets the pace and amount of handling she currently allows. Time, and gentle, respectful care is what this New York street gal requires for now. You can warm up to each other together! So, if you're a patient, independent person who doesn't require lots of cat attention, (for now!), you and Lorenzo may be the best "forever" partners!

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.

Acorn (ID# 73805) A volunteer writes: Acorn is a young, extra-large Californian boy. This guy is mostly interested in play and exploration at this stage of his life. He's very independent-minded, confident, and intelligent, and will likely expect to be the boss of his forever people. Of course, he'll mellow a bit with age, but he's likely to be a very active bunny for years to come. Acorn is a stunning rabbit, with a pristine creamy coat, soft brown ears, and a chocolate-brown acorn for a nose.

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.)
