NEW YORK (AP) - New York City’s largest animal rescue organization is rolling out its first mobile adoption center.

The Animal Care and Control of NYC set up the 26-foot vehicle in Union Square Park on Sunday for its inaugural adoption of dogs and cats.

Risa Weinstock, executive director of the nonprofit, says the $120,000 mobile unit will reach New Yorkers in all five boroughs more easily.

It was funded by the ASPCA and a real estate company.

Animal Care and Control also offers animals for adoptions at its centers in Manhattan, Brooklyn and State Island seven days a week.

Each year, about 30,000 animals in need arrive at the organization that operates on a contract with the city.
