AC&C Kitten in Seventeen Magazine!

New Mobile Adoption Center Planned for the Bronx!

AC&C is on its way to securing a second Mobile Adoption Center, this one dedicated to bringing pets to people in the Bronx! The vehicle, and staffing for it, will be made possible through a $250,000 grant secured by State Senator Jeff Klein in this year’s state budget. The addition of this Mobile Adoption Center will enable AC&C to promote pet adoptions to even more homes throughout the Bronx.

Senator Klein made the announcement on August 17 at the Riverdale Children’s Musical Festival in Seton Park. Cats and dogs were available for adoption on the premises, via AC&C’s existing Mobile Adoption Center, which was generously funded by the ASPCA and FENWICK KEATS Real Estate.

AC&C new Mobile Adoption Center is on the move

We now have a Mobile Adoption Center, made possible by the ASPCA and FENWICK KEATS Real Estate! The brand new vehicle will enable AC&C to bring shelter dogs and cats to New Yorkers wishing to adopt throughout the five boroughs.

Check out this great time-lapse video of the Mobile Adoption Center coming together – then check out the vehicle in person, at an adoption event near you!
