Help Skooter Walk Again

$431 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 17 people in 7 months


Skooter was adopted from Willamette Humane Society in Salem, OR. This amazing shelter found Skooter was worth saving. They took him in and provided extensive medical care to him as a tiny 1 month old kitten.

Skooter is a rear leg amputee. It's pretty common for pets legs to be amputated and they live a perfectly normal life. Skooter is not that lucky. Unfortunately his other leg doesn't work either. Thus becoming "Skooter"

My husband and I adopted Skooter when he was 5 months old. He's been with us 3 weeks and we have started him in a program and are working with a vet and rehab in hopes that someday he will walk again.

His muscles in his tiny leg are contracted. His broken pelvic bone healed and fused incorrectly. His joint in his only good leg may require surgery in the future because of hip displasia.  He drags is other leg behind him. It's unusable but if we work on it now it's possible to get him going again 

We are going to do everything we can to get Skooter walking again. This was not what we expected when we adopted him but we love our Skooter. 

Skooter will have:
Many vet visits
X-rays
Ultra sound therapy
Water / float therapy
Physical therapy
Rotational excercise 
Mobile assisting device (kitty wheelchair)
Daily commitment to his special needs.
Potential Hip Surgery

Any additional funds will go to our local humane society to fund future surgeries and provide physical therapy to disabled shelter cats!

Join us along the way and if you can help out we would be forever grateful!

Successful night at therapy

Skooter walked for 5 minutes on the treadmill. He's getting better at it every time. He's going though therapy sessions like a champ. I can't say he doesn't complain but he's doing his best. As for improvement you can see him in the pool actually standing up! This moment makes me so happy.

Until next time <3

Update for August...

I have the X-Rays to show off of mister Skooter. There's the crooked pelvis and spine fused at the bottom. The leg out of the socket and that white line on the right side by his leg is muscle that should not be visible in an X-ray but due to massive tension it shows up because of the density compared to bone!

This is why we need your help. We want Skooter to live a full life. I can get him to therapy and were willing to do everything we can. But it's more than we ever thought it would be. If you can donate to Skooter's cause it would be so appreciated.

Love from Skooter and family
