In Memory of Laura Sletner

It is with deep regret and sadness that we announce the passing of Laura Sletner on January 23, 2009. Laura passed away suddenly in the morning. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends and of course the animals she always helped.

Laura was a volunteer and board member for over 10 years and was involved in all aspects of running and helping the shelter. Producing and editing the shelter newsletter and writing press releases were some of her many responsibilities. She had many interests and volunteered for other organizations but the shelter was always first and foremost for her.

Her family has requested that donations to the shelter be made in lieu of flowers. Donations can be mailed to PO Box 255, Milford PA, 18337 or use the Paypal link on the sidebar to donate online.

We love you and miss you, Laura.

Laura Sletner's Memorial 40th Birthday Party

Larry, Kathleen and Ian arranged this party in celebration of Laura's life and the legacy she leaves behind.

Many of Laura's friends and family came and the event was really beautiful and cathartic. We talked about Laura, we shared a great dinner, good spirits and dessert, and we even participated in a Laura trivia game. It felt great to be with so many people that loved Laura, to share her dream of having a 40th birthday.

The Pike County Humane Society will never forget you, Laura, and we will always remember all the good soulful work you did to save unwanted and unloved pets.


  1. What a BEAUTIFUL tribute to a marvelous person. I was sad not to be at her party but I saluted her here in San Francisco and will think of her on her birthday. Thanks to all who arranged a 40th Birthday Party and for this wonderful page. Only Love, susie siegel


  3. I Just saw this Laura was a dedicated PCHS member for many years. Her love for the animals was one of a kind. RIP Laura
