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 Jewels, Honey and Hopsey:

Jewels (#83254) is a 10 years old tiny pup with a big personality! At just a little under 8 pounds should would be perfect for any NYC apartment! Come find her at the Brooklyn 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.

Honey (# 81045) A staff member writes: Hi All! People call me Honey and I'm as sweet as my name. I will greet you with tail high and head-butt you a lot. I enjoy all petting, especially chin scratches. If you give me treats, I would probably prefer your attention over them but eventually eat them. My friends at the care center blow catnip bubbles to me because they know that I love to see and play with them. I'm very pretty and just patiently waiting here for my furrever home!

Hopsy (# 81311) A volunteer writes: Hopsy is an extra-large New Zealand White boy. This poor soul was clearly rescued from an unfortunate situation - he has a tattoo in one ear, suggesting he was a taken from a breeder or from a lab. He's very shy, likely because he was probably never socialized. When you try to pet him, he doesn't seem to know what to make of it - though he will come around with time. You can tell Hopsy is very mild-mannered and sweet - he's just confused by his sad and constantly changing lot in life. He would do best in a bunny-savvy home, and would likely benefit greatly from a bunny partner.

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 ID number, 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.)
