3 To See At ACC: Meet Destiny, Tyson & Magnus

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 Destiny, Tyson & Magnus:

Destiny (18523) **UPDATE: Destiny has been placed with a New Hope Partner (another rescue group). Please contact ACC for more information if you are interested in adopting Destiny, or click HERE to see other ACC cats available for adoption.

"Destiny knows what she wants," a volunteer writes, "when I went to meet this delicate tortie girl in the cat adoption room. Friendly and extroverted, Destiny came right up to me and made it clear she wanted to play." Destiny is available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) New York, NY 10029.

Tyson (19378)  "Hubba, Hubba, Hubba", is all a volunteer could say about Tyson. "He is sooooo handsome. And isn't just another pretty face. He is smart, too. He sat, gave me both paws, laid down, rolled over--and this was all within 10 minutes of meeting me. Tyson loves treats, probably a bit too much since he could stand to lose a few pounds (but who couldn't?). Tyson is considered a large dog, but surprisingly he walks well on leash, only pulling slightly when we first exited the shelter. Tyson stole my heart, and I'm sure he will steal yours as well." Tyson is at Staten Island ACC: 3139 Veterans Road West.
