We’re sad to report Scooter has passed away. He was like a family member to Denise and her family. In a post by Richards, “We say family pet, but dogs become more like a member of the family. Our gorgeous sweet Scooter passed away yesterday. Rescued him 5 yrs ago & he gave so much to our family. Lost his leg to cancer almost 1 yr ago & was stronger than ever. We miss him so much already. Beautiful soul … #Scooter (sic).”
Lily, originally named Tara, was adopted from the aftermath of a hurricane that hit New York. The actress visited North Shore Animal League America Shelter in Long Island, New York, to help spread the word about relief efforts in the area and encourage adoptions.
