Facts about Champ

  • Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
  • Color: White - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Champ is approximately two years of age. Champ has had a rough time and has slowly come to a place where I believe he is a happy dog. He was found in a dumpster at the age of eight weeks in Newburgh New York. I believe that he went into a rescue and unfortunately he was adopted to a girl that was just too young to be A responsible pet owner. One of our volunteers happen to see him on craigslist and long story short we took champion. He was not neutered at the time, I've never had vaccines or been tested for anything. Champ has a very goofy and cute personality. When he goes for walks he likes to have a tennis ball in his mouth, and he definitely loves to splash around in the kiddie pools at the shelter. He is on medication to "balance him out". The medications are very inexpensive but for the right adopt her we would pay for his meds for the next 12 months. He loves exercise, loves walks and really just needs somebody to really love him. Champ is a dog that is worth several visits and I know that there is a family out there that is deserving of this sweet boy.

About Goshen Humane Society, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

We are a small no-kill cat and dog shelter. We raise over 70% of what it costs us to survive. We have volunteers however we do have a regular staff that works 7 days a week - all part timers. Our physical building has been in existence for 14 years. Before that GHS worked on a foster care system. We spay/neuter ALL animals before leaving, except for those with medical conditions that it would endanger their lives to do so. We try to educate the public that instead of sending their animals to shelters to exhaust all other possibilities. We also try to educate the public about the importance of spaying and neutering. We are always looking for committed volunteers to work with our animals and to help fundraise throughout the year.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have events throughout the year, however the best place to see our animals is at our shelter located at 44 Police Drive in Goshen, NY. We are presently open to the public Thursday - Tuesday 11:00-3:00pm. We are closed to the public on Wednesdays. You can also see pictures and bios on our website, FB, and PETFINDER & PETESTABLISHED.

Our Adoption Process...

Fees are on our website and can vary based on age, breed and what expenses we incur. Must submit an application for a cat or dog and provide Veterinary and personal references. Dog adoptions take longer so that we make sure the fit is right and adopters understand the commitment. If we have multiple applications, it may take longer. Important to give your Veterinarian and personal references the "heads up" that we will be contacting them. If Veterinary reference is very good, we may not need to contact references. In some cases a home visit may be required.
