Riley  “Riley is a sweet, affectionate and mellow fellow,” writes his foster mom. “He loves nothing more than to hang out at home with you. If you wander off to another room for too long, he will join you. Didn’t hear him come in? He is so quiet at home that his nickname is Ninja Puppy. But there is no hiding his love for attention, and he will occasionally come over just to say ‘hi,’ putting his head on your leg for a petting, or putting his front legs on either side of you for a giant hug. But watch out: sometimes he rolls on his back, letting you know that what he really wants is a belly rub.” Riley also got along well with the two cats in his foster home! Meet and elect to adopt this adorable, approximately nine-month-old pup at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street.

If you’re interested in one of the animals featured here, email ACC’s Adoption team at adoption@nycacc.org with the animal’s name and “A#”, or head directly to the Care Center where the animal is located.
