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.

I may be just a little 23lb. Stone, but my love makes big ripples in every heart I come across! My name is Stone and I am a sweet 2 year old, male, terrier mix. I am a smart, energetic boy who wants my very own best bud! I am house trained, crate trained, great on a leash, and I even know how to "sit." I am good with other dogs and older, respectful kids. I am not a good match for cats or chickens. I would be happy living in a house or apartment. I need supervision while outside or to only go out with you on a leash because fences, no matter how high, are fun for me to cruise on over. I am searching for a friend to love me forever, but one who is also up for adventures, play time and fun!

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.

Need a pick me up from all this gross weather? Check out the felines currently occupying our clinic until they are ready for their forever homes! We are glad they are indoors and warm today as most of the kittens came from feral cat colonies. 💜

Make your own fun and adopt me! My name is Amy! I am a cute little 2 year old Lab mix! I weigh 65lbs! I am as playful and cuddly as they come! I love other dogs but would be great on my own too. I prefer a privacy fenced in yard to play in. I am working on crate training but have house training down. I would love it if I could go to work with you or if you worked from home. I struggle on the leash but I am working hard at trying to be better. We can make our own fun and adventures once you fill out that application!

Did you know we have yet another office cat? ( that makes 4!!) Meet Elliott! Ok, so sometimes we call him Smelliott for obvious reasons. He has some deficits from previous head trauma but Finn (another office cat) has agreed to groom him so we said he could stay! (He would have stayed anyway 🙂 ) He is such a sweet guy and we are happy to keep him safe and loved here at Rescue One.
