HUMANE SOCIETY OF NEW YORK
April 3, 2013

I took my cat here, and a rescued cat because they are cheap and location is convenient. I was not happy with the treatment my cat and I received in January.
And I am more upset because I brought a rescued cat to be neutered, from a friend. When I saw the cat, I thought he looked sick, and thought Humane Soc. may not neuter him if he's sick. They not only neutered him, as he tested positive for feline leukemia, they also vaccinated him, after I told the vet tech who came to me in the waiting room to ask if I wanted him tested and vaccinated, not to vaccinate him if he is sick. The woman at front desk was frazzled or acting strange because I wanted to ask questions before I had him seen/treated. She should have asked me those questions.
The cat got worse after this visit. When I addressed both the doctor and the director about them vaccinating him, they said it's policy. I emailed after about same thing twice , and got no replies.
They are high volume and do not give pets and people attentive care.

ASLANS CATS INC
March 20, 2013

I was asked to help a friendly cat found in a lot by a friend who feeds there. This cat was sick, and tested positive for feline leukemia at Humane Society NY - my friend and the Humane Society were both suggesting I euthanize him. I did not want to do that, and was in a predicament where I did not know what to do. I could not bring him home to pass the disease to my cat. I called Hilary, who I knew for years from another organization, and she kindly agreed to accept this cat! I was so glad for him. He should be able to live out his life. Not only that, she arranged for a holding place till she could pick him up a few days later. His health deteriorated after the Hum. Soc. visit sadly, but the woman and Hilary treated him with IV fluid, stronger antibiotic, etc. and he is doing much better. Now he can live with other cats in a peaceful setting outside of a cage. I don't know what I would have done without Aslan's Cats. Thank you.
UPDATE: April 2 2013 - Wilson, the cat, got much worse after this review, with 106 fever, and other problems, but Aslans Cats, founded by Sabrina Hansen and Hilary, went above and beyond what most people would do for him. He got great treatment at their veterinarian, and as of today, appears to be stabilized and will go home from hospital to live out his life at the sanctuary. Sabrina gave me updates on him - they don't give up on cats like Wilson, when most people will euthanize them. Wilson purrs in spite of not feeling well; he is a sweet friendly cat.
