New York (CBSNewYork) CBSNewYork.com and 1010 WINS have teamed up with Animal Care & Control 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 AC&C’s mobile adoption unit is headed with even more great pets.
This week, we’re featuring Goku, Guinness, and Apple.
Goku (ID#A1032855 – photo above) Handsome Goku arrived at AC&C in mid-April, wagging his tail and giving hugs. Meet this friendly pup of about one year at AC&C’s Brooklyn Care Center, 2336 Linden Boulevard.
Guinness (ID# A1030596) Guinness, a volunteer notes, is “a big snuggler.” Meet this adorable, approximately three-year-old rabbit at AC&C’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
Apple (ID# A1030957) Apple is a very handsome fellow of about two years, looking for an experienced cat guardian to welcome him in and make him feel at home. Meet this gorgeous boy at AC&C’s Staten Island Care Center, 3139 Veterans Road West.
Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C), 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.
