Etrade can sometimes have borrows, but you need a minimum of $2k + the trading fees (so, let's call it $2025) to short according to their customer rep. My account this morning was at 1999.75. I couldn't short because I was short a quarter. LOL.

E*Trade is what I use, they are usually pretty good about having shares for listed stocks. However, they wont let you short any ticker that is less than 1$/share. They also have some available margin requirement if you are trying to short any ticker below 3$/share. Good luck!
