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 Lisa, Andy and Sushi!
Lisa (ID# A1034871 – photo above) Lisa is an easygoing, friendly feline, who used to live in a home with another cat, who she loved to play with, as well as with a dog. Meet this approximately four-year-old beauty at ACC’s Brooklyn Care Center, 2336 Linden Boulevard.
Andy (ID# A1034402) This sweet boy, surrendered by his previous owner, is approximately nine months old. A volunteer notes “He has a slightly melancholy aura, and wiggles his nose rapidly as if he’s trying to tell you his life story. When you offer Andy affection, he will immediately stop whatever he’s doing and hunker down to take advantage of the opportunity for love.” Meet Andy at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
Sushi (ID# A1034367) Sushi came to ACC as a stray at the end of April. This social girl is approximately two years old, and a volunteer says, “When Sushi is out of her kennel she is playful and loves to meet new people. She is definitely not shy. LOL as she will shower you with hugs and kisses as soon as she meets you!!!” Meet Sushi at ACC’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. AC&C’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.
If you’re interested in one of the animals featured here, email AC&C’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, AC&C Adoption Counselors will help you find the best match.
You can also meet your new best friend at AC&C’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)
