Rescue Stories

Fiona

Fiona came to us very emaciated after being dumped by Fellows Lake. Despite her starvation, Fiona was a very sweet dog, with a pleasant temperament toward people. Fiona was in no shape to be adopted out, but thanks to the many generous donors who contributed supplies and medical care, she regained her proper weight and we could begin the process of finding her a forever home. Months later she found the perfect home. Finally, she is a happy dog and has a human who loves her.

Harlow

Sweet Harlow was found after being shot point blank in the head. She was rushed to the vet where she had to have surgery to remove her eye and bone fragments from her jaw. She bounced back in no time and found her forever home!

Hervil

Hervil was found in the woods by hikers. He had been shot in the head, so they immediately contacted Rescue One for help. The bullet was lodged in his nasal cavity and had to be surgically removed. After a couple of months of healing, he found a wonderful forever home!

Ingrid

When Ingrid was rescued, she was in terrible shape. She had an injury to her mouth that was very infected, as well as infected ears and skin. She was also over 20 lbs underweight. She appeared to have given up hope. Over the next several months and with aggressive treatment, she began to blossom! While her muzzle is permanently disfigured, she found her forever home and is very loved!

Jetta

Jetta came to Rescue One with 7 other dogs. She was only a couple of months old, and had a terrible injury to her nose and severe mange. She had to have surgery to be able to breathe out of her nose, and it healed wonderfully! Her skin healed as well, and shortly after that she found her forever home!

Lindy

Lindy was spotted by someone driving down the road; they could see her ribs from their car. She had a massive tumor on her back left leg that totally encased her foot. Dr. Katie Loula of Christian County vet clinic removed the 2½ lb. tumor, plus a couple of toes. In no time at all, Lindy was walking around without any issues. The hair has all grown back and you can’t even tell that she’s missing a few toes. She put on 15 pounds on in one month, making those ribs disappear. She was adopted by a family with children and now is living the dream in a suburb of Denver with a family that loves her very much!

Morgan

One of our volunteers shared Morgan’s story. She had been in a shelter in rural Arkansas for over 4 years. After seeing her face, we could not turn away from helping her. Our volunteers drove the 3 hours to get her, and after being in our care for 3 months, she found her forever home!

Topher

Topher was found after being dumped in the trash. His stomach was very enlarged, and several liters of fluid had to be drained from his stomach. He was sent to the MU Vet Hospital where he was diagnosed with Cor Triatriatum Dexter, which is a very rare birth defect. He had corrective surgery and is looking forward to living long and happy life!

Zander

Zander was rescued in Stone County. It would have been impossible to count all of the punctures on his poor body. Some of his teeth had been pulled, which is not uncommon in bait dogs. He also had a fractured scapula and broken ribs. He was hospitalized for over a week and was unable to get up for 5 days. After several months of rest and love, he recovered! He is a wonderful, loving dog.

Zeke

Rescue One was contacted about a puppy who had been shot in Webster County. At the Emergency Vet Clinic, we learned that he had been shot just below the tail and the bullet had severed his urethra. The next day he was taken to University of Missouri Veterinary Hospital. After a night of tests and consults, we were informed they did not think a repair was possible. The very next day Dr. Nichole Scott at Spring Valley Veterinary Hospital performed a successful Perineal Urethrostomy! Zeke is now adopted and has two kids that adore him!

❤️ Franklin is all dressed up, hoping someone will want to give him a forever home! ❤️

One look into my handsome eyes and your heart is mine! I'll have your heart wrapped around my adorable little paws instantly! Some may say I'm a diabolical mastermind, others simply call me a puppy; both are correct. My official name is Franklin, again some may argue "Snuggle Muffin" is more fitting. Tell ya what, you let me snuggle up beside you for life and we can chat about appropriate nicknames. I'm a 3 month old, 20lb., pit mix boy. I should probably be around medium to large size when I'm fully grown. I am a playful fella who has energy for days! I want a doggie friend in my new home so I can always have a playmate! I get along great with other dogs. I also want a backyard to play in. I want to show off my zoomies in my very own yard! I'm still a little sprout and have lots of learning to do...like house training, crate training, and leash stuff. But I mean who wouldn't want to spend time helping me learn all about that stuff; I'm precious! The time and effort you put in now will pay off like megabucks when I'm full grown! And seriously, I already know how to "sit" so I mean you are basically working with an Honor Student. You should also know...I'm a cuddler. I love to love! I may even be persuaded to smooch on occasion. Hurry up! Fill out that application and let's get to the fun FOREVER!
