Goshen Humane Society believes in "Paying it forward."
There isn't a day that I don't send out a thank you to someone who donated their time or things needed for the shelter. I am eternally grateful to ALL that help the shelter in some way. Goshen Humane Society should matter to everyone. I also understand there are people that truly do want to keep their cats and dogs but may be going through a tough time. If you find that you need food for your cat or dog and that's what it takes to get through a temporary tough time, please come to the shelter and we will help the best that we can. I admire anyone who truly wants to keep their pet, but may just be having a tough time feeding them. If we can help in some small way, GHS wants to help. All I ask in return is that you "pay it forward" down the road to someone else that needs help. Either visit the shelter or call us at 845-294-3984 and ask for our help.

NEW CAT CAGES FOR THE SHELTER CATS 2015
Please consider going to WWW.GOFUNDME.COM and making a small donation towards new cat cages for our shelter cats.
The shelter has had the same donated cages since the shelter was built 10 years ago. Our new cages will not only give the cats twice the room, but will allow people to view them so much better.
At the present time we are only taking in dog control dogs. We would love to help everyone, however the financial burden for "helping" people can't fall on the shelter and the few people that fundraise. If you have an animal (dog or cat) that you want to surrender, talk to your Veterinarian, your family, or friends as often this is the last venue we use and there is usually someone that can help instead of putting them in a shelter. Facebook is a great venue to find homes for animals. PLEASE DO NOT PUT YOUR ANIMALS ON CRAIGSLIST!! Unfortunately, we are also not taking in any cats right now (except on a case by case basis.) We do NOT receive ANY funding for cats and never have, so in reality each and every cat that comes into our shelter puts us back financially. Unfortunately, we are just not in a position to accept the financial burden. This is why I always ask that people think about whether adoption is for you or not.
Please go to Petfinder or our "Pets Highlights" and Cats and Dogs page to see our other shelter animals.
Goshen Humane Society still struggles with the issues of very low funding from Town & Village. In comparison to other municipalities, we are at the very bottom of the totem pole when it come to funding. Shelters in our area are getting 4 times and higher what Goshen Humane Society is getting. At the end of each day, this means that our survival is based on what we bring in from surrender and adoption fees, and the generosity of the public. This can't go on much longer without either more people getting involved primarily in fundraising and grant writing. Yes, these are fulltime commitments but we need people that can put together BIG fundraisers with very little cost and can work on their own. Please help the shelter as it falls on a very few and this is our means of survival.
Please consider becoming a member of Goshen Humane Society. Membership is $25 per person. $25.00 will go a long way to help a shelter animal. Please click here and fill out a membership on line and become a member.

Our dogs love the donated Kuranda beds, and we are fortunate we have enough dog beds right now, so if you can possibly donate a cat condo of any size, our cats would be very happy. Thank you for you donations! Please click here.
