DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The cats of the Dayton woman mauled to death by her neighbor’s dogs are ready for adoption.

The Montgomery County Animal Resource Center says several of Klonda Richey’s cats were already adopted by her friends and family.

The remainder will be offered to the public beginning Saturday, March 1. The adoption will be at no cost. The ARC is waiving cat adoption fees in order to find the cats loving homes.

SICSA and the Humane Society of Greater Dayton are helping to get the cats placed in new homes.

Ritchey’s family asks that people adopt any pet in Klonda’s name.

Klonda Ritchey was killed during the early morning hours of Friday, February 7. Her body was found outside her home on East Bruce Avenue.

She took care of the cats in another home she owned.

The animal resource center is open Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Sunday.
