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.

Hello it's Alexander Crow again. I had Dr Becky send over Gracie's record so you would understand that she has a heart condition. I'm very upset that I haven't been able to get in touch with someone because I have been without a phone and I've been in the hospital off and on while staying with a friend on campus so that John terry, whom Gracie knows as Uncle John john, would not find me. I know Gracie is safe, but to adopt her out right now without reviewing this case is going to involve a breach of the American with Disability Act. I talked to an attorney today. I don't want to get them involved because I love rescue one. You brought me and Gracie together on April 2nd 2016. While in the hospital at Mercy last monday, I finally got my messages on my old phone number. I tried frantically to get someone to get in touch with you and unfortunately I trusted a friend in Mississippi who simply dropped the ball. However I have been working with everyone possible in order to get her back. I've had friends Reach Out, I have been trying to find her since I got out of the hospital a couple of weeks ago and went to Dr Becky's office at Route 66 to get her information that was on the microchip. Unfortunately this whole event with John taking over the apartment throwing Gracie out into the street not to mention what he's done to me? It has been to say the least but make no mistake I have been fighting for Gracie harder than I've been fighting for myself. I did not have a photograph of her but I described her to everyone I knew. Going back to the apartment a couple of times to try to retrieve even just the simplest things was fruitless because this man is simply unhinged mentally. I go tomorrow morning to get the evidence to the field office of the FBI at Chesterfield Village. It's going to start an investigation that's going to be very difficult. Please understand that I'm fighting for my rights for Gracie's rights and quite honestly I'll fight for rescue one too. After all, on April 2nd of this year Gracie and I celebrated 7 years together. She has been by my side every minute of the day for the last 7 years with the exception of a brief hospitalization at Duke University in 2018. I'm sorry that I could not get you the information as quickly as you wanted, but I simply was not able because I was in the hospital. I've contacted my medical doctor, I'm in contact with my psychiatrist's office, Jeffrey Jenkins at Burrell Behavioral Health. Everyone involved is horrified that Gracie is possibly going to be adopted out. Please postpone this so that I have the time to demonstrate to you that I have the proof I did not willingly let Gracie go. That I had no idea and was horrified when I found out that she'd been picked up by Animal Control. While at the apartments over the last 4 weeks, I have begged anyone to tell me where Gracie was. The best I got was a drunk and a Marijuana addict screaming at me that Gracie was in a shelter. That sparked me to contact her vet in person, giving her description to anyone I could think of everyone I saw in that area over a four week time span. I understand that this is upsetting for y'all. But you have no idea how heart-wrenching it is to think that you would be so callous as not to give me the chance. In trying to reach the FBI office yesterday, I ended up back in the emergency room, having passed out from exhaustion in my attempt to do everything possible to bring me and Gracie together again. I know you're a volunteer organization. I'm so proud of the fact that Gracie and I have done so well after the pandemic that I have been getting out with her in public again. My greatest desire was and is to raise money for y'all which is what Gracie and I were going to do for Christmas. We are going to do it for Christmas. Because Gracie and I belong together just as we have been the last seven years. Thank you again for your time, Alexander Crow crowxander22@gmail.com XanderCrow@proton.me 417-840-8730

Thank you guys so so much for taking care of our kitties when we needed help!! You’re amazing

Can I bring my child lol she would love to volunteer with me!

I saw a dog get hit when i was 18 traumatized me

Good night everyone from 🇲🇾

I wish I could take it

I have two other neutered males and if he’s available for adoption I’d like to look into him 🥹

How do you go about being a volunteer for that? I’d love to do that

Where can we come to see these kitties?

Hello cutie dogie...we loves you..❤️

How long before they are able to be adopted out?

Can a 15 year old volunteer?

Where are you located??

Where are you guys located?

We recently caught a stray in he is now our cat but has some little issues that I'm working on. I've been rescuing animals since I was 5 yrs old.

I hope everything goes better soon

Doesn't anybody take this poor thing out it has to go potty in it's cage

Thanks for clarifying on the FIV positive cat. Studies do show the risk of transmission is lower in neutered /spayed cats. So adopt the FIV cats guys ❤️ I currently have 10 cats so I'm currently full atm

I have a corgi chichi can we give it too you

Thank you for answering my question!

My daughter and I would volunteer to walk, cuddle, snuggle!!

They look cared for so hopefully the owners fig out their dogs are missing

What a beautiful dog shame in UK x

OMG I wish I could foster but unable too because of my neighborhood.

I live in Springfield and might be able to foster

#replay. Hello Puppies 🐕🐾❤️‼️. Healing Prayers 🙏

Oasis is looking for a shop home! When she came in she was very scared but almost seemed like she might come around and be an indoor cat. After some time she has made it obvious that she would prefer to live in not quite so close contact with humans. She is spayed, FIV/felv negative, and up to date on vaccinations. If you have a place for her please email rescueoneinfo@gmail.com asap! ... See MoreSee Less

She really might come around in a quiet home. That's been my experience with cats that seem to be at least part feral. Like there's always some degree of wariness, but with time they seem like they come to trust the person who feeds them and cares for them, especially if they're kept indoors

Do you all still have the husky pups from your TikTok post? I tried to message you but website isn’t working.

is there an adoption fee for her?

Any idea how old she is?

Is this Olive? Check out the ear. Marki Gibbons Todd

What county is she near?
