In loving memory of my dear little Slingmouse

Who graced my home, sling and heart for only 4 short years but could not possibly have been loved more. He was my heart kitty….and despite the constant physical struggles and inconveniences both he and I experienced during his time here, nothing was ever taken for granted…he was the definition of a loving soul. Always so hard to say good bye.

Kevin D. Molendy

Born April 24, 1968

Born in to Eternity June 10, 2017

Kevin was a cat lover from the time he was a small child, and cats have always been part of our lives.  Kevin, along with me, supported SPCR by adopting cats, donating to the rescue and spreading the word to friends and family about taking another cat out of the system if they were considering getting a cat.  I am proud to say that one of my friends, and several of Kevin’s friends have adopted cats.

Kevin is now in Heaven with our cattie girls that have passed before him.   And I will see them all at the Bridge.

Love you for all time Kevin.

Stan Kass

In 2010, Stan Kass walked into the Wisconsin Humane Society and found a new best friend: a German Shepherd named Reggie.

In the years that followed, Stan pursued a remarkable mission: to help other people bring the love of an animal into their lives. He has, on numerous occasions, sponsored the adoption fee for every single animal, given large donations to rescues and offered his help and support any way he could to help animals in need. He quietly sent families in need to adopt animals at his expense.

And his friendship for animals went even farther. In the years that followed, Stan supported many animal welfare organizations that help animals and their families in our community including generously funding the purchase of 25 police dogs and supporting the police equine program.

Stan’s broad smile, great stories, and caring heart will be missed.

Bonnie Rae

Goodbye to my sweet sweet dove, Bonnie Rae.

Love of my life, bringer of constant comfort and joy, companion, and fur baby.

You will always be a sweet song on my heart.

What I wouldn’t give to be with you again.
