Kane (A1101883) An ACC volunteer describes adorable, sweet Kane as a “gentle giant.” His previous guardian noted that Kane loves belly rubs, is very loyal and loves to cuddle and watch TV with her person. At about 75 pounds, there’s a lot of him to snuggle! Meet Kane, who’s approximately seven 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.

Storm (A1057703) Not every rabbit is cool with all the busyness and activity of a mobile adoption event, but this guy has been to two. According to his previous guardian, Storm likes to play with toys and also had a penchant for rearranging his enclosure and digs. Meet this approximately two-year-old cutie at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
