Ace (A1061862) Volunteers say Ace’s name stands for Adorable, Cuddly and Energetic, and it’s hard not to fall for his loving personality! Meet this super cute and playful pup—he’s about one year old–at ACC’s Brooklyn Care Center, 2336 Linden Boulevard.

Frankie (A1061086) “Frankie is a magnificent young man with a luxurious orange coat, eyes that match the color of his coat, and the fluffiest of tails!” writes an ACC volunteer. “He is quite curious and alert, and enjoys being petted and having his head scratched. When it’s snack time, Frankie stands so tall, waiting patiently for his treat.” Meet this adorable, approximately four-year-old feline at ACC’s Staten Island Care Center, 3139 Veterans Road West.

Tabitha (A1059888) “Tabitha loves affection and will quickly lapse into a bunny trance as you pet her,” notes an ACC volunteer. Her previous owner says she loves to be around people and would jump in excitement whenever she would see a family member enter the room — and would like to stay by their feet. Meet this approximately two-year-old sweetie 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.
