Humane Society of New York
At the Society, the quality of each animal’s life is paramount. Long before it was popular to think of animals as individuals – to consider their physical and emotional needs when taking responsibility for their care – we were doing just that. That means every day, every dog gets exercise time in the rooftop run, and the chance to walk outdoors with staff and volunteers. Cats enjoy daily play sessions outside their kennels. This very personal care is fully as important to a pet’s well-being as the inoculations, spay/neuter and other veterinary care provided during its stay in the adoption center. “This doesn’t feel like a shelter” remark many visitors to the Society. “It feels like a home.” On any given day, the Humane Society of New York is responsible for hundreds of animals with diverse needs.
The Humane Society of New York has long been noted for its innovative, highly individualized approach to animal care; its pioneer attitude is now reflected in programs coming to the fore nationwide. Each year finds us reaching for a higher level of care. As new technologies and medical advances such as digital radiography and ultrasound-guided biopsy become available, the Humane Society of New York evolves as well. Developing programs offer exciting opportunities for support and sponsorship.
