Memorial Fundraiser 



On November 4th, 2009, I lost my little girl of seventeen years, Kittling, to chronic renal failure. A few weeks later on what would have been Kittling's 17th birthday, my mom and I each donated fifty dollars to a local cat adoption rescue in West Allis, WI, in honor of Kittling's memory.

After learning of what my mom and I did, several friends and co-workers expressed an interest in contributing additional donations, so the following year I started the Kittling Brusky Memorial Fundraiser which became an annual event running from November 4th to December 20th.

From the fundraiser's start in 2009 to its final year in 2014, the Kittling Brusky Memorial Fundraiser has raised a total of $2,375 to benefit two local, non-profit cat rescues.

I would like to thank everyone who has donated over the years.  No matter how large or how small your contribution, you helped keep the homeless cats and kittens at these shelters comfortable and healthy while they wait for their opportunity to bring joy and happiness to others.
