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.

This disturbs me immensely and they do need to prosecute!

Thank you Rescue One but those people need charges brought against them!🤬🤬

Thank you Rescue One and thank you for getting charges filed. They shouldn't get away with it.

Thankgoodness for rescues! These people should be charged to the fullest extent of the law!

Those poor sweet souls. Prosecute!

Thank you!!! Some people should never be allowed to have animals or children.

This is how the process should always work. Thank GCSD for taking action. Thank you Rescue One for stepping up to help!

Think the blog should only be for those who can foster! Yes I feel badly about it but taking up space to weed thru for real possible fosters is important! We all feel sad but in order to be able to help PLEASE ONLY POST WILLING TO FOSTER'S! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

Thank you Rescue One and Sheriff Department for rescuing these babies 🙏🙏❤️❤️

Poor babies!! That’s the worse ever tied up to starve. Thank goodness for Angels like Rescue One….many prayers for what you do!!

Just donated. Wish I could foster but my Rescue One dog Hooch will not allow that. So donations are all I can do. Bless those babies.

Thank you for saving their lives I hope the people who had them were ARRESTED

Thank you and thank God finally a animal abuser is going to be held accountable and these babies are going to have a better life thanks to Rescue One and the law enforcement for stepping in and saving these poor innocent precious deserving voiceless souls 🙏

Thank you for intervening and likely saving their lives.

Thank you Rescue One and GCSO. Poor babies, how can people be so cruel?

Those poor babies. I sure hope there are charges against their owners 🤬

Thank you for rescuing them!! This is so heartbreaking!! God Bless Those Poor, Innocent, Helpless, Beautiful Fur Babies

Thank you to Rescue One and Sheriffs Office for saving these babies!!

Thank you Rescue One you are Amazing!!!! So horribly sad😪

I hope you have dealt with the owners and banned them from ever owning any animals ever again 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

THANK YOU to ALL who stepped up to save these dogs

Prayers for these pups

People disgust me. Glad they are being rescued

Oh my gosh, praying Rescue One be showered with blessings! Poor babies were starving to death.

Why😡💔🙏🐾 sweet babies deserve so much better. Thank God they were found. They probably didn't have many more days😥

Rescue One

Senior gentleman searching for a loving companion or family to spend my golden years with. Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Gentry. I am a 73 pound, 13-year-old Australian Shepherd. I am a perfect gentleman in every way. I am house trained and crate trained. I am fabulous on a leash. I get along with everyone I meet - people of all ages, dogs of all sizes, even cats! My ideal home is fairly quiet and doesn't have too many stairs (I don't get around quite as well as I used to in my youth). I am fine as an only dog, but I wouldn't mind a fur sibling or two, especially if my people are away from home for several hours at a time. I am not really in to playing much any more, but I do love to go on short walks and I REALLY love to go for car rides. I hope my people take me lots of places, since I am so friendly and well-behaved. You are guaranteed to fall in love with me when we meet. Everyone does. Please don't make me wait too long. Fill out an application for me today!!

My adoption fee is $75 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.

Bags are packed and ready for a forever home!

Gorgeous senior female looking for her forever companion. Hi there! My name is Atlas. I’m an 8-year-old, 62 pound Boxer. I was in pretty rough shape when I came to Rescue One, but they nursed me back to health, and now I’m healthy and ready to make the most of my senior years with my new family. I am super easy to get along with. I love dogs, cats, and kids of all ages! I’m house trained and crate trained. I do pretty well on the leash too. I love to cuddle, and I love to play! My ideal home would have a fenced yard to play in and a kiddo &/or another dog sibling to play with. I would be okay being an only dog and living in an apartment, as long as I get plenty of daily exercise and play time. I would love to find my play/cuddle buddy soon, so please fill out an application today!

This adorable photo reminds of me of another adorable photo. Our Sarge was still a puppy when my husband was packing for another business trip. Sarge didn’t want him to go. Dogs are awesome. 🥰

She is just precious!! I wish wish wish I could!!! Praying that Atlas is blessed with the perfect home and perfect family that won’t ever toss her away!

I'm so happy this girl was finally caught and given the blessings that come with Rescue One being your Angel.❤❤❤❤I wish my dog would allow another dog with us, but she won't have it.

That would be awesome. You are such a good boxer momma.

Prayers this sweet boxer gets a wonderful family!!!! B
