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 Lacey, Liannie and Bartholomew.
Bartholomew (ID#: A1034952 – photo above) “This guy is as easygoing and sweet as they come,” an ACC volunteer notes. “He adores head and cheek rubs. After some quality time with you, he’ll hop away to do a little grooming, then hop right back to continue the snuggling.” Meet Bartholomew at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
Lacey (ID#: A0963174) “Lacey is affectionate and loving and she will come right up to you, wanting to interact,” an ACC volunteer notes. “This young lady is as sweet as they come.” Meet Lacey, who’s approximately four years old, at ACC’s Staten Island Care Center, 3139 Veterans Road West.
Liannie (ID#: A1027455) Volunteers have so many great things to say about Liannie, an adorable pup of about two years. “Giving stand up hugs and laying her paws on my lap for some petting, she lifts her head like a cat to give me better access for an under-the-skin scratch. She’s so quietly playful, nicely behaved and gently affectionate,” notes one volunteer. Says another: “Liannie is my ‘go to’ girl for some play time, a cuddle, a wagging tail and smiling face when I need one. She’s maintained her great looks and attitude, and volunteers have filled her kennel card with tributes to her great personality. ‘Great dog,’ ‘fun girl,’ ‘love her,’ ‘AWESOME,’ ‘so sweet’ are but a few of the shout outs to our girl.” Meet Liannie at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
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 email@example.com 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)
