Well, the most well known within the Kingdom Animalia (excluding humans) are of course the members of the Phylum Arthropoda. Mosquitoes are incredibly hazardous to humans, passing such diseases as malaria, west nile, dengue and yellow fever. They are probably the most significant animal that can pass disease by contact (of course, the contact being a bite).
There are many different animals that humans can acquire diseases from including, but not limited to bats, mosquitoes, sick cats, sick dogs, birds, etc. Reptiles such as turtles and snakes can transmit salmonella bacteria to humans.
