Animal Care and Control of New York City, the only open-door animal welfare organization in the city, is launching a new mobile app for iPhone that will list animals up for adoption.

The app connects directly with all three Animal Care Centers in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Staten Island.

Through the menu, users will be able to see the latest animals up for adoption, contact adoptions counselors and directors and share pet profiles on Facebook, Twitter and through text message or email.

"The app for iPhone makes this process easier than ever by connecting potential adopters with accurate information about our available animals in a simple, easy to use format," executive director Risa Weinstock said. "This will ultimately result in more adoptions and lives saved."

Animal Care and Control is the largest animal welfare organization in the country and takes in more than 30,000 animals a year. The nonprofit organization hopes the app will showcase the animals and bring attention to the fact that there are many pets looking for homes in NYC.

Animal Care Centers are open daily for adoptions from noon though 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The app is available for free from the App Store on iPhone by searching "ACC of NYC."
