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.

🌟 Talk About a Glow Up! 🌟

When Streeta Rita came to us in March, she was in severe kidney failure from dehydration and battling a tough upper respiratory infection. Weighing just a little over 4 lbs, she was in rough shape. After being hospitalized at our clinic for over a month and ultimately losing an eye, she's now a healthy 8.5 lbs and ready for adoption!

Streeta Rita is 5 years old and gets along great with both cats and dogs. If you can give this sweet survivor a loving home, please fill out an application at rescueonespringfield.com.

PSA-

Not all dogs are dog-friendly! And even if they are dog friendly, they may not want to meet your dog. Keep your dog on a leash and respect other dogs' space! No one wants to be out walking their dog and see your dog bolting towards them and having to break up a dog fight. #leashyourdog #beresponsible

1000% agree with this. I have a XL Rescue One dog that is extremely friendly and loves dogs, cats, and people but he will defend himself when attacked aggressively by anything. Honestly, I would defend my big baby so please people- do the right thing and keep your pets on leashes when out in public!

Thank you for posting this. I had an incident this weekend with an off-leash dog running up to my nervous/protective leashed dog. Fortunately, everyone is safe.

I would also add, when walking your dog please pick up after them. Also when walking, mailbox posts as well as other things are not made to be peed on!
