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.

And.. just in time for the holidays, they're launching their annual Twelve Stray of Christmas: Foster Edition! 

This week, we're featuring Tigger, Misty and Prince:

Tigger (#82679) A volunteer writes: Hello there, I'm Tigger, and people tell me I'm humble as well as adorable. (Can't argue with that!). I'm 10 years old and I'm a go-with-the flow kinda guy. I love to be around people and I used to live with another dog and cat!. Before coming here, I enjoyed sleeping in a cozy nook with lots of blankets. I may be older, but I still love to chase balls, chomp on chew toys, gently nibble treats and play with dogs. If you have some room in your home, I'd love to retire there!

Misty (# 80807) A volunteer writes: This fluffy little grey cloud of a young cat is looking for someone to love her. She seemed a little shy at first, but after I spent a little time talking to her, she came to the front of her cage, and gave me slow blinks with the most amazing yellow-green eyes. Misty is a beautiful, sweet, affectionate little kitty. She loves attention and is super calm. If you are in the market for a wonderful little lap cat..she is the one for you!! Come to the Manhattan ACC location and be the one to bring a forever home and some sunshine into Misty's life.

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.

Prince (#67249) A volunteer writes: Prince loves to eat. So here we have a bunny who really enjoys his food and therefore needs a lot of exercise. Which, luckily, he likes, too. As well as melting into a hand that softly strokes his most handsome head and soft ears. Prince is looking for a new kingdom to reign, and after a few hours with Prince, I am sure you will happily want to be his human servant. Come meet our royalty at the Care Center in Brooklyn!

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.)
