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.
The Adoption Process Just Got Easier!
We are pleased to say that we have upgraded the Adoption Application Process. We have teamed up with Petstablished!
Petstablished is a premium provider of management software to Animal Welfare Organizations. Through their easy-to-use-interface AWOs can track information for all of our pets, adopters, fosters, donations, and staff. We are using their Web based Adoption forms. No more printing and mailing (unless you prefer the 'hand on' experience, which you can still do). Our Feline and Canine applications can be found on Adoptions/Fees
Page or Cats/Dogs
NEW CAT CAGES FOR THE SHELTER CATS
We asked and you made it happen! We would like to thank the Town of Goshen for our beautiful cat cages which were delivered a little over 2 months ago. The cats LOVE them!
We would also like to thank the Village of Goshen for donating the full cost to have a heating and AC unit put in our free roaming cat room. This room is mostly concrete and it desperately needed this. THANK YOU to the Town and Village of Goshen. We are very appreciative!

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.
