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.

Amazon order headed your way. Thank you for taking care of the pets.

I’m more than happy to donate. Thank you to all that help save a precious animals life. Food will be delivered on Thursday from Amazon. ❤️🐾❤️

Can I donate opened food?? I have a full bag of food I bought for my dog poured it in to a container and she now has to be on a prescription diet.

It's the least I can do for all the hard work and animals you help! ❤ Food should arrive Thursday!

In memory of my Springfield pound puppy that I lost unexpectedly 4 years ago today I have sent items from your Amazon list

Thank you, order placed. Thanks for having the option of ordering directly through Chewy. I’ve had trouble before trying to donate through a cash app

If I had the funds I would but I just don't so I will pass this on

Thanks for all that you do ♥️......order placed.

Cat food coming your way!

Done should get it today

I am paw-sitively the funniest girl you have ever met! My name is Mazie and I am a one year old, 40 found adorable female Labrador retriever/collie mix! I am learning all things house manners and I am doing pretty well. I am a smart one, so it won't be long! As a one year old, I am all puppy and learning new things everyday. I just figured out that I LOVE toys and water. I also like to copy my foster fur siblings and do whatever they do. I play when they play, sleep when they sleep and bark when they bark. Admittedly I am a bit of an awkward klutz and tend to trip over my own long legs, which is pretty funny. Eventually, I will figure it all out! My ideal home would be a family with kids (I think I would like them), fur friends and a fenced yard. I will also need a family who is committed to my continued training. I am paws-itive...apply for me today!

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.

You can't buy love but you can rescue it! My name is Lynnie Bean and I am a 6 month old female Border Collie mix ready to be rescued! I came to Rescue One very recently and I am still scared of most things. I am working on trying to be comfortable. I am a little anxious as a result and I like my people to be in the same room with me. I am working on house, crate and leash training, but because I am a smart girl, it won't be long. I will need a family who can be patient and loving while I learn to trust. I know that as I become more comfortable, you will be able to see my true puppy personality! I would love to be in a home with a yard and another dog to show me the way.

We have to post any dog that is found in case they were A.) Stolen. B.) Lost for a long time. C.) Was tied up by a passerby that was trying to keep them out of the road? D.) We are required to by the DOA.

I would like to take both please

I challenge people to do a little less assuming/accusing and a little more donating to help the helpless fur babies. Happy they didn't just end their lives.

A Good Samaritan, who was unable to pick them up, may have tied them there to keep them from getting hit. You can’t assume that an owner did this.

They should be tied to a pole in this heat and see how it is. Hope people share this and they find out who did this.

Anyone that would tie a dog and a kitten to a post should NEVER be allowed to claim it...

If they were tied, I don't think they want them back. Some people even moved from town and they don't want to carry their pets. Hopefully they will find a good home

Thank you, county mowers, for rescuing them!!

I'm baffled how people, regardless of their circumstances would abandon these precious animals 😢

HORRID excuse of humans to do this. No good in a human who could do it. None. Worthless.

Iam getting a call every day with people saying they have to get rid of their pets, so Iam not surprised at this, rescues are full and Iam for sure.

If they were tied and left they don't deserve to have them back.

These ppl that automatically ASSume that the owners tied their own animal up, really are narrow minded. Smh

I'm assuming the baby isn't microchipped? Poor things💔 I hope someone who knows this animal comes forward 🙏 😢

Such horrible people to do this at the very least to to a shelter.

How awful to do that to poor animals especially in this heat.😥😥😥

Just a sign of the times. Probably treat their children the same way. But even if you caught/found them they’re be no punishment. But they are safe that’s to the mower people and rescue 1. I just wonder how many of these babies are out there that are not found. Just sad

Obviously they left them there on purpose. This makes me sad and angry all at the same time to some human I don't even know

Who would tie a dog to a post in this heat? They need to be prosecuted for animal cruelty! Poor baby!

Some people suck!! Thanks to the workers for rescuing them!

Thank you for explaining why you have to post looking for ownership. And of course as always thank you for all you do.

This makes me sick.

If I ever found an animal tied to a post or tree, I would take care of it myself until I found it a new home. Obviously the dog and kitten were not wanted.

Prayers for a loving conclusion!!

No animal should ever be mistreated….never…never

Any Harry Potter fans out there? I am the great wizard Kingsley Shacklebolt at your service! As Minister of Magic, I am ready to make all your dreams come true! At 60 pounds and just a year old, this Great Pyrenees is a royal beauty! I am a fun affectionate guy who is laid back but still enjoys a good romp in the yard! I am really good on a leash but haven't figured out car rides yet. Like other Great Pyr's, I am not a big barker, since I was bred to herd sheep. There are some cows behind my foster home and I have to admit, I am not sure what to make of them so I barked to see what they would do. Believe it or not, they just stood there. I can be a bit timid when I hear loud noises, but on a walk. cats and dogs haven't bothered me much. I think I need a home with plenty of space since I am on the large size. An apartment just might be too small for me. I already know "sit" and "kennel" and am ready to learn more! Apply for me today....Kingsley Shacklebolt at your service!

Great pyrenees are livestock guardians and will bark at anything it deems a threat... a mouse farting 5 miles away, leaves falling in your yard, sketchy looking squirrels...

He is a gentle giant!

Helga Hufflepuff approves of this naming convention!

Great Pyrenees are the most loyal companions, I love mine like my kid but research the breed a little. They do bark and shed a lot.

My nephew has had two Great Pyrenees and they are the most gentle giants as far as dogs go! The kids crawl all over him and he loves it, great family dog!

We love your Pyrenees. He is great with kids.

Best animal I have owned in my 80 years!!

Used to have a mix of Great Pyrenees & black lab. The most affectionate fun dog ever. Good luck sweetheart on finding a furever home

Has he been around any chickens or goats yet ?

He's so pretty, and they are by far one of the best dogs! 💙

Praying he goes to a home with Pyr experience

I'm referring to a friend

My FAVORITE breed!

Sam Reaves Lisa Baker …. He looks just like Dorothy!

Kris Bailey! Need a 3rd?

Not herd sheep guard sheep.And some are night barkers as thats when predators are most active.
