  1. I used to work at the Humane Society of NY on 59th Street.It was the best job I ever had, and I have had plenty. The one thing they do there is treat animals with the love & respect they deserve.I worked in every area of the HSNY including taking care of cats and dogs that were in isolation but we NEVER sprayed them down with a hose, that’s just horrendous. We had to wear a “suit” from top to bottom so as not to contaminate other areas of the building.Usually the cats & dogs that were in isolation had ringworm, nothing too bad although an outbreak of ringworm could be quite distressing.
