There should be more stars for this fantastic organization! Everyone works relentlessly to enable the best care and attention to every animal that comes into this shelter. They ensure that each animals individual needs are catered for and to. Be it special diets, medications or just plain love and attention. It is not a job for these people - it is their passion for helping all and any animal that they come in contact with. Kudos to this incredible group.

GHS goes above and beyond for the animals. The director will do anything and everything she can for these animals, and has the staff to match the dedication and love. The staff are some of the greatest people I’ve had the pleasure to meet. The animals are in great hands!

Very caring staff. They go above and beyond to make sure the dogs and cats are happy and healthy until they go to their forever homes. We adopted a dog there a few months ago and we love her so much.

GHS and Susan have been helping as many animals and people as possible for many years. Each and every dog and cat are treated like family while they're at the shelter.

I may be a little bias, however I have overseen GHS for many years. It’s like a 2nd home to me. My needs are not what is important.....if they were, I wouldn’t be there anymore. The animals are what make GHS. Presently I have the most wonderful staff and lucky to have them. It takes a lot to have a great “team” but when you do great things happen. I have adopted many of my own at GHS...some have gone over rainbow bridge, and some are still with us. I have hundreds of stories to last me a lifetime. GHS will always be a part of me.

Our family adopted two cats from Goshen Humane a year apart from each other 3 and 4 years ago. I am impressed with how much time is spent with these animals and how well they were socialized. I adopted my first cat shortly before the addition started and the 2nd one half way through the addition so I was able to see a big transformation. In the midst of all the construction and chaos I was in awe as to how well adjusted the cats were and even with all the commotion, there was a kind of calmness in the shelter. The animals seemed to follow the lead of the employees and volunteers and seemed to go along for the ride. I have since visited and donate money and supplies every month of so. This is a small shelter but it is very apparent that the people that run it and work in it are very committed. If I am ever in a position to have a dog, I will most certainly adopt from Goshen H.S.

We adopted one of our dogs from Goshen Humane Society 6yrs ago, and he is an absolute joy! The staff, director, and volunteers work tirelessly to provide a safe and loving environment for the animals in their care. If you’re looking for a new addition or thinking about adopting, you should definitely visit GHS. They are the best!

I have known GHS for 12+ years now having rescued 2 beautiful Pit Bulls from them. Sue & Rick Bosley and their staff are the most animal loving and caring people there. There are no words to express what a great shelter this is and others out their like them that care enough to save pets lives. GHS staff are the ‘angels’ that watch over, protect and care for all their sheltered pets.

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 shelter goes above and beyond for every single animal that crosses there path. The staff is great with the animals, and truly cares about every single one of them. Everyone there has the animals best interest at heart. I’ve been going there for almost a year to visit Luna, and watching what they do for these animals on a daily basis is incredible. This isn’t a normal shelter, they give these animals a loving, caring environment while they are there and exceed at it. Goshen humane society is truly a special place.

The couple who runs this shelter has an actual love for animals. I've seen a lot of blood, sweat and tears (happy and sad) from the Bossleys. The workers are amazing, the animals are well taken care of and all they try to do is find the most loving home possible for these critters! Nothing but good things to say about this humane society, especially Susan who literally will go above and beyond for any animal.

I have been involved with the Goshen Humane Society since 2015 both as a volunteer and an employee. It is amazing how much Susan Bossley does with so little funding. Susan tirelessly raises funds to make up the deficit in our budget for veterinarian care, food, training and salaries for the staff. Many people are not aware that we receive no funding for cats, but at the present moment, we have at least 40 at our shelter being cared for. We are a small, non-profit organization, but Susan will not turn away animals in the greatest need. I am proud to be a part of the Goshen Humane Society.

It is my privilege and pleasure to be an employee and volunteer at the Goshen Humane Society. Susan Bossley, the director of the shelter is the most compassionate person I have ever met. Her care and concern for animals should be an example to us all. She has hand-picked a wonderful staff who all share and follow her mission to take the best possible care for all the dogs and cats who reside at the shelter until the right home is found for each and every one.
Susan holds a very high standard for the cleanliness at the shelter. Many people that come through the door mention how clean it is compared to other shelters they have visited. This also makes me proud to be an employee and volunteer of the Goshen Humane Society.

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.

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.
