Out of all the animal shelters in the area, goshen humane society is by far the most welcoming. Amazingly well kept, organized and cozy for the animals. Thank you goshen humane for providing such a fabulous service to the community!

GHS is a remarkable shelter. The employees and volunteers are dedicated to the well being of all the animals. The cats and dogs at Goshen Humane are given exceptional care; their individual needs are assessed and taken into consideration during their time at the shelter. Great care is taken during the adoption process to ensure each animal is properly placed. The employees are kind, caring, knowledgeable and helpful. I'm proud to be associated with such a fine organization.

I actively follow this organization and contribute to them because of all the wonderful things they do in our community. I believe that they treuly care for every animal that they rescue and try to engage our community in the most positive ways. They have a very difficult and thankless job, but they are always positive and kind to the animals and to the people who they deal with. My friends, family and neighbors gladly support the Goshen Humane Society.

I had an issue with a very, very territorial feral cat that had been attacking my cat. I received instructions on handling the situation from the director of the GHS, as well as the use of a trap. This cat was then trapped, neutered and vaccinated, and released to the care of the shelter. A win/win for that cat and my own, and I could not be happier.
They do great things at Goshen Humane Society each and every day.

I've been volunteering at the Goshen Humane Society for many years and have nothing but good things to say about what we do there. It's always very clean, and it doesn't reek of bleach like most shelters do. The animals always have what they need. The cats and dogs even get treats like peanut butter dog bones and cat treats. The dogs always get walks and are played with outside! The cats that are in cages get time to walk around outside of their cages for a little while, so they can stretch their paws. I'm so proud to be part of an organization that truly cares about the happiness and well being of their animals. The Goshen Humane Society truly goes above and beyond for the animals in their care.

The Goshen Humane Society is a very well organized animal shelter. The facility is very clean, and the animals are treated well. The management and volunteers are wonderful. They take all opportunities to help raise funds and make the animals' lives as good as possible.

EVERYONE at Goshen Humane Society should receive an Angels blessing for the work they do. My husband and I have rescued 2 wonderful dogs from their shelter, Bobo and Otis. Each were SAVED and kept ALIVE with all the care an animal would receive if they already had a home. Goshen Humane Society is a no-kill shelter that provides all the needed veterinary care and much needed love they can give. The volunteers there take the time out of their busy lives to walk, feed, play and love these poor abandoned animals. They are the true Angels!

This is a wonderful shelter. My daughter has volunteered on occasion (and should be doing it more often!) to read to the cats and help socialize them for a more successful transition to a forever home. What I like is how much the dogs get exercised, nice long walks several times a day and not just stuck in a big outdoor turnout. It's very clean and the animals receive so much love. I'm looking forward to finding the perfect dog to join my pack!
