New York (1010 WINS)  1010 WINS teams 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.

 3 To See At ACC: Meet Maggie, Magnus & Sage

Maggie (15179) A volunteer writes: Maggie has a stunning black and gold tortoise shell coat (in dogs it would be called brindle). I found her sitting right up front in her kennel, presiding over the room and soliciting my attention. When I opened her door, she leaned in for a nose kiss, and to my surprise, then gave me the sweetest lick on my forehead. That was a first, and it was awesome. Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) Learn more about Maggie HERE.

Sage (17415) Someone must have taught Sage and even taken good care of him. He is quite a handsome dog and although I know he is a boroughbred , I would love to know his ancestry. Sage is at the Manhattan Care Center, a good, social and playful dog looking for a new loving owner or family. Come and meet him soon! Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) Learn more about Sage HERE.
