Having been involved with Goshen Humane Society and its President, Susan Bossley, I cannot say enough about this organization.

The animals are well and truly cared about, getting one one attention, affection, and they also receive the best medical care.

Susan Bossley puts a great deal of her time and herself into the animals and the shelter, making it a fine refuge until the animals find their forever home.

Awesome! They love and care on all furballs like they are family. Adopted my Gizmo about 6 years ago now. And he is the most amazing migraine buddy. He started out as a foster... haha

The Goshen Humane Society in Goshen, NY is dedicated to helping save animals. The couple who volunteer to run it are devoted, caring, and generous people who have given up their time on a daily basis to make sure that the animals in the shelter are warm, safe, and comfortable. They and the other volunteers who run it go above and beyond to raise money to run the animal shelter and to see that the animals get great homes! A++

Goshen Humane Society has always proven itself to be a top notch nonprofit organization for the caring of all animals. Although small they have a very big heart when it comes to the dogs and cats they bring in. One of my cats that recently passed away I adopted from GHS she was almost 19 years old when she passed I adopted her at around 1 year old. They treat the animals there like family and if bad weather is about to come that may prevent the volunteers and workers from getting in to feed and take care of the animals you will find Susan sleeping there overnight to be certain they will be taken care of.

My dad fell ill and was no longer able to live on his own and had to go into a nursing home. I was left to deal with the heartbreak of no only having him in a facility, but I also had to find a loving home for his cat "Baby". After a few attempt at finding a loving home for her, Susan Puzio Bosley reached out to me and said she would take her at the Goshen Humane Society. She would find Baby a good home for me. I knew Susan for many years and know she loves all animals. I felt this was the best solution for dads Baby.

The day I brought Baby in, we were met with a great bunch of young ladies. They got Baby's "room" ready and doted on her. I felt so relieved to know she was in good hands.

Thank you, Goshen Humane Society for reaching out and giving us reassurance that Baby will find a new family.

I can't say enough good things about Goshen Humane Society. I volunteer there 3 times a week and I find it to be very clean inside and out. The people who work there are wonderful and treat the animals there like they were their own, They take time to train the animals so they are ready for their forever home. I have been going there a year now and have been very impressed by this shelter. Jeanne Gordon

A little over a year ago my family and I were looking to adopt a young dog and found Gus who is an older terrier mix. He was so friendly, almost like he knew we were coming! The staff at GHS were just as friendly and you can tell they’re dedicated to the health and well-being of all the animals in their care. We love Gus so much that we decided to adopt another dog and went back to GHS. The folks over at GHS make sure both the animals and adopters are a perfect fit. I don’t know what I would be doing without Gus and Mabel thanks to everyone at Goshen Humane Society.

The Goshen Humane Society is a caring no-kill shelter that epitomizes how to treat and care for displaced pets. My wife and I rescued a 4yr old German Shepherd that was labeled "unadoptable" by the animal control officer. But by spending time with him, getting to know his story and showing him affection, Susan and her team KNEW he was worth rescuing. Together we fought to adopt him and won.....He was able to spend 9 years living a happy, healthy life with us.
Goshen Humane Society truly cares about the animals they take in and the forever homes they go to.
Thank you for always going above and beyond for the little ones who can't speak for themselves.

Everyone here is so helpful. I’m so glad I went with Goshen Humane Society. I adopted Rosie the beginning of February, and she immediately got comfortable with my fiancé and I. Rosie was so well trained, you can tell that they spend a lot of time with the animals. Thank you so much for giving me my baby, I’m so grateful!

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.
