Scootch has become a bit of the mascot for Healingcats because the
rescue effort began when scootch dog first needed medical attention.

Scootch Dog was diagnosed this year with Congestive Heart Failure and is being treated by
Dr. Dan Cowden of “A Pets Place” in Clearwater, FL, (click link for A Pets Place Info)
Dr. Cowden is the Offical Veterinarian for the rescue. Scootch Doggies heart condition
caused her spells of coughing and whimpering and pain to the point she could barely get up or walk.
