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.
Today, AC&C and many of its rescue partners will be at Whiskers in Wonderland, a special holiday adoption event, presented by the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, in partnership with the Petco Foundation. AC&C cats and kittens will be outside the Union Square Petco, in a mobile adoption vehicle borrowed from the North Shore Animal League.
Sunday, December 8, 12-5pm
Union Square Petco, 860 Broadway
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.
