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.

Does the winner choose the color, or is it definitely a white one?

Thet say until you spread your wings, you will have no idea how far you can fly. My name is Angel and I am ready to see just how far I can go. I am a 2 year old, 70 proud female Anatolian Shepherd/Pit Mix. I was rescued after being dumped in the middle of nowhere after my owner had passed away. My foster mom says that I am not great on a leash yet but I make up for it in super snuggles! I am working on being house broken, know a few commands and respond well to corrections. I will need a fenced back yard and a family without little ones, since I am big and may knock them over. My ideal family would have someone home most of the time, as I get anxious, or possibly have another dog! I like new adventures and to be with my people! No apartment life for me! Let's fly away together and see what life holds!

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. *

Do you know me?

Someone asked us to take in a very pregnant cat from their porch. They brought it in and it is a very fat, neutered male. 😀 Found on West Lynn Street in Springfield Please email rescueoneinfo@gmail.com to claim.

That also appears to be ear tipped?

Not a feral but it's ear clipped previously?

🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Sure hope his owner comes forward. So cold out. God Bless All These Wonderful People For Helping Him.

That was surprising

Awe, he’s so cute!! (The opposite always seemed to happen to us - we would take in a stray cat, not knowing it was pregnant and then Surprise! You have 12 cats now! ). 🥴

He is currently warm and hanging out at our clinic.

Some one has been taking very good care of him!

I had a cat that way! Everyone thought he was pregnant!🤣

I have a fat, neutered male cat in my house also... I've asked him if he was sure he wasn't a she a few times. 🤷🏼‍♀️ (Don't at all overfeed him. He just naps a lot. Although I have had to call people on giving him treats.)

Does he have a Bob tail? My Boo Nubbins disappeared and he looks like him out of the face.

What a cutie.

Sweet baby!

Suzy, this sounds like your dude!

Gunnar Cyr, Kacie Cyr

Thank you so much for posting this !!! I hope we find him a good home ! I was so surprised it was a male 😂

I’m really invested in whether this is Boo Nubbins… 👀

omg i hope this is your cat, suzy! that would be so awesome

Gosh I hope this is poor Boo Nubbins!

I hope we get an update here on the status of whether this is Boo Nubbins 🤞

Go Boo! Let this be you!

Following… hoping this is Boo Nubbins!

#herefornubbins

I think we all are hoping this is boo!

Boo Nubbins!! Hope this is him!!

Praying someone is looking for this beautiful baby. Blessed to be warm tonight

Is that in Strafford or Springfield?

Handsome boy!!!

Reminds me a bit of Homer, may he RIP.

🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

He looks like our “Old” Bill! We can call him Little Bill! He is adorable!

How old do you think he is?

Dear God, I hope this post helps find his owner. Bless his heart. He looks so sweet, and truly loving.

Please remember to knock on your hood or honk your horn before starting your car in cold temperatures. This will give any napping or lounging kitty plenty of notice before you start your car. Cats are basically furry heat-seeking missiles and a recently-driven car offers immediate warmth.

Conan is a cat that came in with burns from an engine and is still hospitalized at our clinic. It only takes a second and could save a life!
