We are a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization dedicated to companion animals and to spay/neuter education. Our shelter is low-kill and provides a temporary home for our animals. We are committed to finding adoptive homes for the rescued animals that are brought to us because of abandonment, illness or neglect. We do not support euthanasia as a means of resolving the companion animal overpopulation crisis at our shelter. We work to educate the public regarding responsible pet ownership, including neutering of all family pets.
The Goshen Humane Society is a small shelter and is set up to care for dogs and cats. We are not equipped to take in "wild" or "exotic" animals. It is very important to understand that it is against the law to "trap" any animal that may be considered wild in NYS. It is also against the law to feed most wild animals. This means any animal that it's origin is not fully known. Please do not try to make a determination yourself as to whether an animal who is living outside is wild or not, as you can cause severe injury to yourself and/or to the animal in question. If you come upon any animal that may fall into this category, the following information is very useful!
