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.
In honor of the 4th of July holiday ACC will hold a “Red, White & Meow” cat adoption special. For the entire month of July, the adoption fees for cats one year and over, will be waived.
This week’s featured animals, are Cindy, AJ and Paulette.
Cindy (ID#: A1038715 – photo above) This beautiful girl, only about 13 months old, solicits attention and appreciates petting. Meet Cindy at ACC’s Brooklyn Care Center (2336 Linden Boulevard). Throughout July, ACC is waiving the adoption fee for all cats one year and over!
AJ (ID#: A1041571) This handsome and gentle dog, about six years old, would make a lovely family pet. Meet AJ at ACC’s Staten Island Care Center (3139 Veterans Road West).
Paulette (ID#: A1039036) Paulette is an adorable bunny of about 15 months. “She is friendly in a sweet, unassuming way, and loves any affection you’re willing to provide,” notes a volunteer. Meet Paulette at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center (326 E. 110th Street).
