Gregory & Samson Ready for Adoption 

Applications Due by 6 p.m. Feb. 17 for Adoption Lottery

Gregory and Samson, two puppies rescued by a Rumpke driver from the bitter cold, are now ready for adoption through the Kentucky Humane Society. Many people have expressed interest in them; to make the adoption process as fair as possible, KHS will be conducting a lottery. We request that people interested in adopting one of the puppies download, print, and fill out the Dog & Puppy Adoption Survey located at and email the survey to [email protected] by 6 p.m. on Wednesday, February 17. Applicants may also drop off the survey before 6 p.m. February 16 or between 12:30-6 p.m. February 17. Only completed surveys will be considered.

KHS will conduct a lottery of qualified adopters who send in surveys by 6 p.m. February 17, and will contact the lottery recipient on Thursday. Each puppy will be ready for adoption by their new family on Friday. Given expected interest, KHS will not be able to answer questions via phone, email or social media about these puppies, and the puppies will not be available to meet the general public. The puppies are neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations; the adoption fee for each puppy is $350.

While there has been tremendous interest in Gregory and Samson, we remind people that there are many wonderful puppies, dogs, kittens and cats looking for their forever homes at the Kentucky Humane Society and through other local shelters and rescues. If your application is not chosen via the lottery, we encourage you to consider adopting another grateful shelter animal. KHS receives new animals every day of the week. Within the next two weeks, KHS is expecting over 30 puppies from other shelters who will be looking for families to love them. Our hope is that Gregory and Samson help other animals find wonderful families too.
