New York (CBSNewYork) CBSNewYork.com and 1010 WINS have teamed up with Animal Care Centers of New York City to let you know about some of the adoptable animals 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 Ruby, Marvel Girl & Trumpet. Plus, ACC’s Valentine’s adoption special continues! Through February 19th, the adoption fee for cats, dogs and rabbits six months and older is only $14!
Marvel Girl (A1102947 – photo above) Marvelous Marvel Girl is as friendly as she is beautiful. Meet this curious yet mellow kitty, who’s about three years old, at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
Ruby (A1103025) Looking for a jewel of a dog? Meet sweet, relaxed Ruby at ACC’s Staten Island Care Center, 3139 Veterans Road West. This petite (she’s about 35 pounds), approximately five-year-old girl got along well with another dog in her previous home, and we hear she even enjoys baths!
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.
Trumpet (A1092037) “This light ginger girl is a bundle of energy, rearranging her toys and belongings like a seasoned home decorator,” notes an ACC volunteer. “But she really comes to life during her time out of the kennel, when she spends most of her time exploring and perfecting her binky routine for the next Bunny Olympics. That is, until she’s ready to settle down for some serious head pets.” Meet Trumpet, who’s about 16 months old, at ACC’s Brooklyn Care Center, 2336 Linden Boulevard.
If you’re interested in one of the animals featured here, email ACC’s Adoption team at firstname.lastname@example.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. Also check http://nycacc.org/Events.htm)
