Scooter was a hit and run victim who was left to die on a roadside 500 miles away from the Rocky Mountain Animal Hospital.

It was looking like the puppy would succumb to his injuries before he was brought in. But just when the vets lost all hope, a pilot named Don Gunn stepped in!

Don volunteered to pick Scooter up and fly him to the hospital for free. Despite all his injuries, the puppy kept shooting thankful kisses at Don throughout the flight from Oklahoma to Colorado!
