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!

How do you do? My name is Lady Fluff and I am a 35lb. 4yr. old Brussels Griffon mix. I am so so SO happy to get to find my very own forever loving home! I cannot stop wagging just thinking about all the love coming my way! I am house trained and crate trained. I would be ok living with other mature, mellow fur siblings. I do not like those active, up-in-my-snout dogs. I would also be totally content being your one and only sugar plum. I do not show any interest in cats, so they would be fine as roommates. I am a gentle, sweet, affectionate little pumpkin who would be in heaven if someone wanted to give me unlimited snuggles all day! I really love my toys and think it's super fun to toss them in the air! I had a rough beginning in life, but from here on out, every thing is sunshine and doggie treats! If you would want to promise to love me with all your heart forever and treat me like a true lady, fill out that application!

*I graduate on Thursday from the Pups for Parole training program, but you can apply for me now! Upon graduation, I will 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'm learning!*

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.

Wise men say, only fools rush in, but I can't help falling in love with you and you won't be able to help falling in love with me! I'm just a hunk, a hunk of burning love...for you! Some people call me the king, others just call me Elvis. I'm a 9 month old, 61lb. lab mix. I am a strong boy so an experienced lab owner would be best. I enjoy kids, cats, dogs, and peanut butter covered bananas. I am house and crate trained. I'm a smartie and also know how to "sit." I love just about everything: toys, bones, treats, ice cream cones, and cuddling up beside you in bed. I'm a super lovable, sweet Southern boy looking for a Graceland of my own with a family to love me forever and ever. If you're lonesome tonight (or right now) fill out an application because you are always on my mind! My blue suede shoes are already packed!

*I am back from the Pups for Parole training program as a graduate. I will have all the basic training necessary to make a great companion.

Hi there! My name is Hazel Ann and I'm a 75 pound, 1 year old Great Pyrenees. I am looking for a forever home with no other dogs or cats because why would you need another pet when you have me? Cuddling is my specialty and I rather like all of your attention. Just because I don't want to live with other dogs doesn't mean I don't like meeting them at the park. I like making friends but I think it's best if I'm an only child so I don't have to share my stuff. I am a pretty big girl so I would really like a big back yard to run around in. I haven't found out how to jump fences so chain link or privacy fence will do. I am a smart girl however I am a bit stubborn. I know how to sit, shake, and sometimes when I feel like it, I'll lay down for you. Shaking is probably my favorite trick and I like to do this trick because I usually get a quick rub for doing it so well. I really, really love to chew and I get kinda bored when you're gone and chewing seems to make the time go by faster until you get back. So I would like to be occupied with lots of toys and bones when you're not at home. A kong with frozen peanut butter is a favorite!! My ideal home would be someone who has time to be with me because I want to be with you. Someone who likes to cuddle, go on walks, brush me and hang out, and someone who will love me unconditionally. I can't wait to meet you!

Do you like to play with squeaky toys? How about long, peaceful walks down a quiet path? And lounging around? If you love doing these things, maybe we could do them together sometime ‘cause these are some of my favorite things! Hi! I’m Luna Lulu—that’s Luna for short. I’m a 2 year old Great Pyrenees weighing in around 75 pounds. I’ve been working really hard at putting on some weight and some people say I still have a ways to go. Hey, that’s another thing we could do together—put on our ‘Winter Fluff’ together! Speaking of winter, maybe we can play Hide & Seek in the snow! I bet I’m real good at that. Anyway, back to finding that perfect home for me… I really want a 6 foot privacy fence, those short fences are just way too easy for me to get over and I like a challenge. I like all the attention on me so I’d really like to be your only furbaby. Younger kids sometimes confuse me, so maybe not any of those, either. I know, I know, I’m kind of picky. But, believe me, I more than make up for it with my loving playfulness with my people. Besides, you won’t need those other things, you’ll have me! PS, I’ve also got that house training and basic obedience nonsense out of the way already (try finding that in a puppy)!
