Goshen Humane Society is having a Holiday Fundraiser on Sunday, December 7th from 12 noon until 4pm. This event will be at the Senior Center in Goshen (behind the Village Police Dept.) on Railroad Avenue. Pet and people photo's with Santa Claus, HUGE baked sale with all kinds of holiday goodies, raffle, door prizes and just some plain old holiday fun. We'll even wrap or package your purchased baked goods if you want to give it as a gift.
Come by and enjoy some baked goods/snacks and a nice warm drink, and the kids and pets can get their photo's taken with Santa. Or buy one of our holiday cakes, cookies, etc.... for your holiday party or dinner. ALL proceeds benefit the Goshen Humane Society. We need bakers, so if you enjoy baking and would like to donate baked goods to this event please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or call the shelter at 845-294-3984 and let us know what you'd like to bring. We need cakes, cookies, pies, cake pops, and anything else you enjoy baking. ALSO, if you can possibly donate an item to be raffled off, please, please let us know - maybe a beautiful holiday wreath from one of the local florists, a nice holiday basket, or anything holiday related (doesn't have to be a holiday item - just some suggestions.) We want this to be a fun time for everyone. Also, if you would like to donate a toy for a little boy or girl, I will personally make sure that they are delivered to children that might not have as much as some of us at the holidays. If you would like to help at this event, we're hoping for a big turnout, so a few hours volunteering would help us out immensely. Please tell your friends and family about our event.
We are in need of a Santa Claus suit if anyone has one. The shelter used to have one, however is no longer usable. Please help us to make this a fun and successful event for Goshen Humane Society as it's our last one for the year.
First Annual Black Friday Blast!
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.
