DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Friends and family come together to honor the life of a woman mauled to death by two dogs.

A public visitation service was held Saturday afternoon for 57-year-old Klonda Richey at Baker-Hazel & Snider Funeral Home on Philadelphia Drive in Dayton.

Those who knew Klonda best said she loved all animals, making her death that much more tragic.

When Klonda died, she left behind more than two dozen cats. Currently, the cats are being housed at the Animal Resource Center in a room called “Klonda’s Kitty Corner.”

The cats are all undergoing treatment and will be up for adoption soon.

Right now, a list is being compiled of people interested in adopting Klonda’s cats.
