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.

After 3 weeks of hospitalization and fighting as hard as he could with parvo, Aries has crossed the rainbow bridge. We are heartbroken. Thank you Ozark Veterinary Clinic for giving him amazing care and doing everything possible for him. Run free sweet boy. 😭

12 out of the 14 parvo pups survived and all others are doing great.

Who can help these ladies out?

This mom and daughter pair would love to stay together. Chloe is 10 years old and is 38 pounds. Panda is 6 years old and is 26 pounds. They are currently in boarding at a vet clinic and would love a foster or forever home! Please apply to foster or adopt them today at rescueonespringfield.com!

After a few scoops of vanilla ice cream, a little bit of yummy chocolate syrup, some fluffy whip cream and a juicy cherry to top it off you can have yourself a yummy treat. Even better, you can just avoid all that trouble and simply fill out an application for the sweetest rescue doggy, Sundae! I am a 6 month old, female Pit Bull Terrier mix. I have still got some growing to do and will be a medium sized gal when I am all done. I am still getting used to the good life and am learning all about this house and crate training stuff. Although I have not yet mastered either, I am so close! I will have it down quicker than that vanilla ice cream will melt on a scorching summer day. I am a friendly gal and will do well with larger dogs, respectful children and even felines! I may have my playful side, but I also have a prominent laid back side. I also love walks with my people. But, no apartment life for me, please! Maybe you can go ahead and make that sundae, but fill out that application for me first so that we can split it!

My adoption fee is $150 and includes my spay/neuter, vaccinations, wellness exam, heartworm test, and microchip! If you're interested in meeting/adopting me, please visit www.rescueonespringfield.com/our-adoption-process/adoption-application/ and fill out the form!
