Every Friday Huffington Post New York features city animals up for adoption, in partnership with Animal Care Control of New York City.
A nonprofit organization, ACC gives shelter to more than 30,000 dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals each year.
Interested in a new pet? ACC has adoption centers in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island, all open daily from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
All ACC adoptions include vaccinations, a microchip, spay/neuter, one month of free pet health insurance and a free office visit at a participating veterinarian.
For more information on adopting, go here, or call (212) 788-4000.
Also! October is “Adopt-a-Dog Month.” Dogs that are at least 40 pounds will be only $40 this month. Normally dogs of that size cost anywhere from $75-$125.

Marlowe, who has lived any played with other dogs in the past, was brought in to Animal Care Control of NYC (ACC) by his owner because of housing issues. An ACC volunteer writes that he “is like a splash of light in his kennel” – also very well-groomed and a little shy. Meet this three-year-old beagle at ACC’s Manhattan Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
A staff favorite, Bianca is a great dog who the police found tied to a pump. A volunteer writes that she’s a sweetheart who loves to give hugs and seems to like other dogs. Meet her at Animal Care Control of NYC’s Manhattan Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
Katy was surrendered by her owner, who said she had too many pets. This super-friendly 18-month-old has lived (and gotten along with) cats as well as a Chihuahua. She came in with her kitten, who has since been adopted. Katy is at Animal Care Control of NYC’s Brooklyn Center, 2336 Linden Boulevard.

This young rabbit came to Animal Care Control of NYC (ACC) as a stray in September. A volunteer writes that “Wilhelmina may look regal, but on the inside she’s a love bug. She is very friendly and adores affection – she’ll practically jump on you if you dare to stop petting her! Because she’s so sociable, this unusual and delightful girl would be good for a family or as a partner for another rabbit.” Meet her at ACC’s Manhattan Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
