New York (CBSNewYork) CBSNewYork.com and 1010 WINS have teamed up with the recently 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.
ACC’s “Red, white & meow!” CATriotic adoption special runs throughout July. All month, they’re waiving the adoption fees for cats one year and over.
This week, we’re featuring Hollande, Lady and Cosmo.
Hollande (ID#: A1041356 – photo above) Hollande is a beautiful, friendly calico cat, just around one year old. Meet this petite cutie at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center (326 E. 110th Street).
Lady (ID#: A1038124) What a happy dog! This gorgeous, sweet, approximately 20-month-old Lady is “a leaner” who loves being pet. Her previous family said she enjoys fetch and when they were home, she liked to be where they were. Meet Lady at ACC’s Brooklyn Care Center (2336 Linden Boulevard).
Check out video of Lady at https://www.facebook.com/NYCACC/videos/vb.125204517523362/916308441746295/?type=2&theater !
Cosmo (ID#: A1040750) “Adopting Cosmo will be a bit like adopting a puppy!” a volunteer says of this handsome, high-energy rabbit. Meet Cosmo, who’s about two years old, at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center (326 E. 110th Street).
Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC), 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. ACC’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 ACC’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, ACC Adoption Counselors will help you find the best match.
You can also meet your new best friend at ACC’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)
