Princess (A1125555) available for adoption at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street.

Princess (A1125555) Princess, an ACC volunteer notes, “has a smile bright enough to turn darkness into light and a delightful, happy spirit more bubbly than a can of Sprite. She walks nicely on leash, takes her treats gently, and sets her windshield wiper of a tail to work at simply the sight of a toy (or of you!)” Meet this approximately four-year-old cutie at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street.

Cha Cha (A1124030) available for adoption at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street.

Cha Cha (A1124030) “This girl has it all–looks, personality, and sweetness,” writes an ACC volunteer. “She’s very alert and high-energy, but she also loves to be petted, and really enjoys robust head massages. Affection seems to calm her down, and if you’re in the vicinity she’ll eagerly seek out your hand for petting.  In addition to being a very entertaining bunny, Cha Cha will become a total love sponge in a good forever home.” Meet Cha Cha, who’s about two years old, ACC’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
