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

A nonprofit organization, AC&C gives shelter to more than 30,000 dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals each year.

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.

This Sunday, February 9, at 11 a.m., AC&C will unveil their brand new Mobile Adoption Center in Union Square Park North Plaza (E. 17th St., between Broadway and Park Avenue South). After the press conference, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., AC&C will hold its inaugural adoption event.

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.
