Saddle (A1123824) Super sweet Saddle, approximately six years old is affectionate and playful. Her previous family says she has been around a large breed dog – and didn’t pay the dog any attention. Meet this cutie at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street. Her adoption fee is waived during ACC’s “America’s Next To Meowdel” promotion, running Sept. 9 – Sept. 17!
Chica (A1123746) Chica’s tail wags like a helicopter! She used to live with another dog, whose company she enjoyed. This friendly, beautiful girl is approximately five years old. Met her at ACC’s Brooklyn Care Center, 2336 Linden Boulevard.
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.

Coleslaw (A1123074) Coleslaw, an ACC volunteer writes, “has the sweet neediness of a puppydog. This cozy guy is very eager for companionship. When he sees someone, he gets all excited, and when you visit him, he immediately smushes himself into a pancake and soaks up the love. He’ll also get upset and protest if you turn your attention elsewhere. Coleslaw obviously needs a home where he can get lots of attention.” Meet Coleslaw at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
If you’re interested in one of the animals featured here, email ACC’s Adoption team at email@example.com 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.
