Every week The Huffington Post New York features city animals up for adoption, in partnership with Animal Care & Control of New York City.

Interested in a new pet? AC&C has adoption centers in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island, all open daily from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
All AC&C adoptions include vaccinations, a microchip, spay/neuter, one month of free pet health insurance and a free office visit at a participating veterinarian.

Pinta is a real beauty, with intense eyes and so many colors in her coat (and even her nose!) She looked directly at the camera when first photographed, but soon enough was rolling on her side. Meet Pinta at Animal Care & Control of NYC’s Manhattan Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
Cookie is a gorgeous tuxedo kitty, whose adorable white paws perfectly complement her whiskers. She was surrendered by her former owner of seven years (her whole life up till now) because of allergies and family changes. If you can give her the loving home she deserves, come meet Cookie at Animal Care & Control of NYC’s Brooklyn Center, 2336 Linden Blvd.
Mason, a volunteer writes, is “a sweetheart and a love bug who loves to be in company.” This handsome and affectionate boy, about 13 months old, was surrendered by his former family, who was moving to a place that didn’t allow pets. Meet him at Animal Care & Control of NYC’s Manhattan Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
This beautiful girl, found as a stray in Brooklyn, is only around 13 months young. She’s a sociable puppy who did very well on her behavior evaluation. Meet Neptune at Animal Care & Control of NYC’s Brooklyn Center, 2336 Linden Blvd.
The person who first brought Maury in to Animal Care & Control (AC&C) noted that “He is a very loving cat.” Maury, only about two-years-old and a big boy at some 18 pounds, was snapped up pretty quickly after that, but unfortunately the adoption didn’t work out. Now he’s waiting for his forever home at AC&C’s Manhattan Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
This adorable Parson Russell Terrier mix, found as a stray, is only about two years old. Meet Teddy at Animal Care & Control of NYC’s Manhattan Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
