Homes sought for cats of Ohio woman killed by dogs

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Many of the cats cared for by an Ohio woman who police say was fatally mauled by two dogs have been put up for adoption at an animal shelter.

The Animal Resource Center in Dayton said it is waiving adoption fees for the cats that Kalona Richey was caring for when she died Feb. 7. The 57-year-old woman's family asked that people adopt a pet in her memory.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1dO5u5d ) reports that Richey was caring for as many as 50 cats when she died.

Police have said Richey was mauled by her neighbor's mixed-breed dogs. She was found unclothed in front of her house, her coat apparently torn off by the dogs that were later fatally shot by responding officers.

Police have been investigating the death.
