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: Misha, Otis and Jello:

Misha (#85934) A volunteer writes: I saw Misha coming to the care center, brought in by his former owner. He looked regal walking by his side, gentle though and so handsome in his leather harness. Misha is a big guy at 112lbs but he only inspires fondness with his bruised puppy look. He is so easy going, walks right at my pace, does his business on the way and absolutely loves treats that he takes quite politely from my hands. His whole attention is for his caretaker… and treats, of course. He is obedient, comes when called, sits and lays down on command and just relaxes on the grass. He seems to enjoy caresses and licks my hand, I guess acknowledging our friendship. Misha was a good family dog(described by his former owner as smart and gentle) and friend, a loyal companion who would love to start his life again, with you. Come and meet Misha at the Manhattan Care Center!

Jello (#84946) A volunteer writes: I like big buns and I cannot lie. Big boy Jello stole my heart in seconds. At 10.5 pounds he friendly and curious as a puppy. I asked him whether he wanted to move to the small dog room at the Brooklyn Care Center. But Jello just snuggled next to me, his chin on my leg and told me he was comfortable where he is though he would like a home of his own and a human friend to shower with affection. Is that maybe you he is waiting for?

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.

Otis (#86032) A volunteer writes: Here at the Care Center you will find Otis, just "sittin' on the dock of the bay," a big, almost all white boy, except for a small eyebrow-pencil smudge over his eye (who was playing in mommy's makeup kit?), and a black and grey striped tail (very exotic). He's super social, a gentle cheek-rubber, and he's easy to pick up and hold. He lived peaceably with a dog (after establishing who's boss -- him). He's a bit on the chub side, but if you give him the exercise he wants and needs, he will be your stud muffin extraordinaire. Come get him!

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.
