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.

Grab my leash and your hiking boots and let's be off! I'm Largo, a 10 month old, 53 pound male Husky/Shepherd mix and I love adventure! I was found tied to a pole by railroad tracks and I had an angel save me! Now, I am working on house manners, like house, crate and leash training and learning to live in luxury! As a young pupper, I am high energy, playful and smart! I know "sit", "lay down", and will follow you anywhere if you have food! I will dig if left outside unsupervised and will need a family who is committed to continuing with my training. I get along with other dogs and older children (but might knock little ones over with all my excitement). I am looking for a family who love playing fetch and including me in all their adventures. A home with a fenced yard would be the best fit for me. We have places to go, people to meet and the world to explore together!

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! We do adopt out of state with vet references and video home check.

Hi name is Louie and am a 69 lb, happy, relaxed, mellow fellow Catahoula Leopard mix boy!

I came to rescue with a badly broken hip that couldn’t be repaired do now I'm a tri-pod, and I’ve never felt more light on my feet! I recently learned that I can get the zoomies outside, which I could never do with my broken hip, and was afraid to do once I lost my leg. But boy oh boy, pain-free rescued life feels so good!

I am 4 years old, potty-trained, and learning the leash! I love all the smells. I’m also SO crate-trained that I kennel MYSELF when I’m tired or want to just chill. I am a people-pupper: I love to snuggle you, cuddle on the couch with you, sunbathe, and even walk or hike for miles with my person. I also love short car rides, I call shotgun! I am great with all creatures, human or animal, big or small.

I bought a house that came with a pregnant barn cat. Definitely an unexpected pregnancy from my perspective.

Who would not spay their animals dogs do not want to be mothers they don't need to be mothers there is way too many breeding going on with all the breeds it needs to stop and there needs to be more rescue

Or when you move into a new place and unknowingly inherit an entire colony of cats... And some of those said cats are pregnant that's unexpected IMO

Exactly! I have had pets for 60 years and I always have them spayed or neutered. It is the right thing to do!

I hear ya! I’m on a few pet rescue sites and people say that all the time and I want to scream!

what if they lied to us about the pet being spayed? 🙄😭😭😭😤

All of my pets are spayed or neutered except for 2 of my outside cats who declined to go to the vet. And by declined, I mean they tried to claw the crap outta me when I tried to put them in a carrier to go get neutered. But I'll keep working on it!

So true, people need to take full responsibility for their pets!!!

However, when a stray shows up at your house and she is pregnant- now THATS an unexpected litter. This is one of her babies now😂

If my cat gets pregnant a stray broke in she's the only one not fixed and she's scared of outside but thinks she's a dog.

When it cost between $280 &380 to fix your dogs the best I can do is watch um closely. My dogs have the best food the best Everything but I rescued 2 from abusive inviroments, loves um to spoilt ness. Went to get them fixed and find I don't have 3 to 6 hundred dollars...That doesn't make me a bad fur baby parent and I very much resent opinionated people !!!

Amen!

Absolutely 💯

We need more memes like this!!!@@

Please spay your fur babies.

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

💯

same for humans....

Absolutely

Yep

I know that tell me the same shit about their kids. It was an accident. How the hell is it an accident?

Don't even get me started on house rabbits. Did you know they are 80% likely to get reproductive cancer by 2 years old if not spayed/neutered?!

Exactly!

Exactly

Morning hellos, and goodnight kisses... my forever home is all I am missin'! My name is Jasmine and I am a 1 year old, 40 pound, retriever mix ready to be your princess! I am a high energy playful pup. I am house trained, leash and crate trained. I love my people and want to follow them wherever they go, although I am a little scared by quick movements. My day consists of play, snuggle and repeat! I get along with cats, dogs, and kids and will do best in a home with a fenced yard versus an apartment. Since I have lots of energy, it will be important for me to have lots of daily exercise so that I am tired by the time I am ready for bed. I would love a play sibling too! Come play with me won't you?

I am a graduate of the Pups for Parole training program. I have all the basic training necessary to make a great companion. I will need a family willing to continue my training, I sure don't want to forget all that I've learned!

My adoption fee is $150 and includes my spay/neuter, vaccinations, wellness exam, heartworm test, and microchip!
