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!

My Daughter has been working at the shelter for 6 yrs during this time I am able to observe the amount of caring and dedication that all workers have for each and every animal that has come into the shelter including those that are sick and injured. I have also had the pleasure of adopting 4 cats that have become part of my family.I would highly suggest getting your friend and family member from them

Hello, my name is Dylan and I adopted a beautiful cat named Skylar from the Goshen Human Society not too long ago.

It took her a little to get used to my apartment, but she's been getting more comfortably each day and she is an absolute sweetheart. Thank you to the humane society for helping me find her.

The Goshen Humane Society's dedication to their animals is unparalleled. Our family was searching for a new canine member after losing our family pet of 9 years. When we fell in love with Wally, a long term resident of the shelter, it was clear it would not be an overnight process. We were committed to giving Wally the support he needed in order to leave the shelter and become a permanent member of our family. This could not have been possible without the support of the Goshen Humane Society and their amazing staff. Employees and volunteers alike worked with our family and Wally and we have seen an astounding transformation in Wally's behavior and overall demeanor. I would and have highly recommended the Goshen Humane Society to friends and colleagues looking to adopt and would encourage anyone else thinking of opening their heart and home to do so as well.

I've worked here for almost 2 years and absolutely adore all the animals that come/came through those doors. Most have the saddest stories I've ever heard to happen to an animal but knowing all the love and care that we give them let's them know that the horrible things are in the past. They've learned to trust humans again. Watching the ones that truly were broken find a forever home makes all the work that we do worth it. This humane society truly does all they can do and are so involved in the community. Susan is a very passionate and dedicated person, she goes above and beyond for these animals. They deserve to be spoiled and loved and that's just what everyone in this shelter does for them.

The Goshen Humane Society has been a tremendous partner at helping families find a pet to complete their family. They do an excellent job at ensuring animals have quality homes and take very good care of the animals waiting for adoption.
I would highly recommend the Goshen Humane Society. Our community would be lost without them!

Goshen Humane Society is a well run shelter for dogs and cats. It is beautifully maintained and the animals are well cared for. We adopted our dog from there and the process was extremely easy! The staff was very helpful and you can tell that they really care about the animals that reside there.

I have donated to this organization for many years. I am a resident of the Village of Goshen and believe in supporting the community and I think this is one of the most appreciative and deserving organizations I've ever come to know. I can't tell you how many hand written thank you's that I've received. Unfortunately I don't think that this organization receives half of the support that it should get. The public, Town and Village should be much more grateful for what this organization does for the community. They work tirelessly to provide for the cats and dogs that take refuge there. I will always be supportive of any great cause and this is one of the best.

I had the pleasure of working at Goshen Humane Society for nearly a year. The director is someone who cares deeply and is very driven to help as many as she can. Goshen Humane may be a small shelter but it has a lot of heart. They take the health and well-being of their shelter animals very seriously. I wish that I had seen more community support for them but I am hoping that it will develop over time because they are a great establishment.
