1010 WINS Teams With Animal Care Centers of NYC To Help Boost Pet Adoptions

New York (1010WINS) 1010 WINS has teamed up with 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.

This week, we’re featuring Meet Zoe, Allen & Bagel:

Bagel (19251) When I approached Bagel’s kennel he was so happy to see me, and we hadn’t been formally introduced yet. Once out of the kennel, I found myself on the receiving end of a nice big hug. Once we exited the shelter, he did his business and spent the remainder of his walk exploring his surroundings. Bagel pulls a bit on leash, but I found him to be a good walking Buddy. Bagel is a “fun” dog. He likes to play fetch/keep away, which had me laughing at his antics. Stop by Staten Island ACC and take this special girl home with you. Staten Island ACC: 3139 Veterans Road West. Learn more about Bagel HERE.
