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: Kyngston, Star and Lola:

Kyngston (# 82942) A volunteer writes: Is your family one reindeer short of a team? Kyngston will literally prance his way into your heart with the cutest little sashay this side of a catwalk and to know him is to love him...deer-ly! A super social chap who enjoys being with people and all the toys and treats they bring, his goofy, playful side is offset by quick wits and impressive athletic prowess. Jumping, running and exploring are Kyngston's favorite hobbies but he'll sit politely for a snack and waits nicely for toys too, taking them from my hand with a gentle tug and a wagging tail. He's an excellent leash walker and seems very house trained and though he passes other pups with ease, he isn't looking to make friends so a home where he can be the only four-legged family member is a must. Handsome, happy and huggy, I can't think of a better present to give yourself than a lifetime of love from Kyngston and he's all set to rule over you and yours with a velvet paw and plenty of kisses. Visit our Manhattan Care Center today and get ready to fall for the quirkiest reindeer of all!

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.

Star (# 14298) A volunteer writes: As I wandered through the room, peering into one kennel after another, I noticed a gray and white puffball tucked in the back of her kennel. I noticed a sweetness about her that made me pause and, as I did, I felt sure she was calling to me. When I opened her door, I thought she'd be shy at first and I'd have to coax her, but that was hardly the case. I held my hands out and she dropped her little round face into my palms. Lots of cheek and nose and forehead rubs ensued. When I petted the whole length of her torso, I noticed that she had an incredibly soft, thick and rich coat. We're told that she lived well with another cat (who came in with her) and that she was relaxed around children. She is a 10 in more ways than one. She hopes you will come by to meet her.

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.

Lola (# 83873) A volunteer writes: Our Lola Bunny is maybe not a Looney Tunes character (or is she?), but she is certainly looking for her "Bugs Bunny". As Bugs, I am sure you will be instantly smitten by Lola's beauty. Lola is a good sport and loves to be petted and get gifts. She will sit prettily for a photo shoot with her gift, but then unwrap impatiently to see (and eat) what's inside. Cilantro, hay, and some lettuce are always welcome and she will thank you by rubbing her nose in your hand to get some gentle head pets. If you are in a Bugs Bunny state of mind, come meet our Lola Bunny in the Brooklyn Care Center.

To adopt an animal, you must have a valid photo ID, be 18 years of age or older, and bring proof of current address. ACC adoptions include vaccinations, spay/neuter, a pre-registered microchip, an identification tag, a collar, and a certificate for a free initial exam at a participating veterinarian.
