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.

My babies are microchip

If all else fails, get a piece of masking or painters tape and make a “tape tag” for the collar.

Buddy is so excited to meet everyone tomorrow at our adoption event! Come see us at the Barker Shoppe from 10-1. Here is information on sweet Buddy!

My name is Buddy Holly, a 9 year old, 25 pound Jack Russell/Rat Terrier mix who is ready to win you over with love! At my age of course I have impeccable manners! I came to R1 because my mom passed away. Now, in the prime of my life, I have to find a new best friend. I get along with dogs and cats (although I am not sure about kids since I haven't been kid tested). Being an only dog and soaking up all the attention would be ideal though. I would love to spend my time sitting on a warm lap and snuggling up to my bestie all night! I am flexible as to my living arrangement...mostly I would be happiest snuggling with my human. A house, an apartment or a truck would be fine with me! Have leash, will travel! Let me know if our hearts speak to each other!

We are very interested in Buddy.... We just lost our Buddy in April to kidney failure. He was about the same age and a JR.. He was the joy in our lives. How do I find out more about Buddy Holly?

What a handsome boy! 🥰

Is he still available

Ok, I know these Rescue One peeps posted me last week but they got a great update on me from Puppies for Parole and wanted to share! I mean, I hate to brag but my trainer says:

“Camille is a gorgeous girl that has a fun loving personality and strives to please. She is confident with other dogs and has made friends with all of them. Oh, and did I say she is beautiful?”

Also:
❇️ Camille knows all of her obedience commands and has excellent focus.
❇️ Camille is confident, loyal, and very attentive to her person.
❇️ Camille loves to play in the water and do the agility course.
❇️ Camille is a devoted best friend.

I am 3 years old and 63 pounds of gorgeous Weimaraner/shepherd mix. I would love a home with kids and other dogs. I am house and crate trained and excellent on a leash so that I can go on adventures with my family. I have not been around cats yet.

I graduate next week and would love to go straight to an adoptive home!
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 and complete an adoption application. We do adopt out of state with vet references and video home check.
