New York (CBSNewYork) CBSNewYork.com and 1010 WINS have teamed up with the newly renamed 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 MeowMeow, Sriracha And Jasper.
Sriracha (ID#: A1033622 – photo above) Sriracha is a friendly, energetic pup of about two years. Meet this beautiful girl at ACC’s Brooklyn Care Center (2336 Linden Boulevard).
MeowMeow (ID#: A1030318) It’s Adopt-a-Cat-Month, the purrfect time to bring MeowMeow home! This playful and affectionate cat, approximately fifteen months old, used to live with other cats and got along fine with them. Meet this active cutie at ACC’s Brooklyn Care Center (2336 Linden Boulevard).
Jasper (ID#: A1040398 – photo above) How adorable is Jasper? This petite cutie—he’s only about two pounds—previously lived in a home with another rabbit, also surrendered to ACC. Meet them both at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center (326 E. 110th Street).
