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.

Zeke

Rescue One was contacted about a puppy who had been shot in Webster County. At the Emergency Vet Clinic, we learned that he had been shot just below the tail and the bullet had severed his urethra. The next day he was taken to University of Missouri Veterinary Hospital. After a night of tests and consults, we were informed they did not think a repair was possible. The very next day Dr. Nichole Scott at Spring Valley Veterinary Hospital performed a successful Perineal Urethrostomy! Zeke is now adopted and has two kids that adore him!

Sweet, loving, playful, trampoline enthusiast...that's me! Kayla! I'm an 18 month old, 40lb., Border Collie mix sweet heart! I love to cuddle and just adore affection. I listen well and even know how to "sit" on command. I am house trained and crate trained. I definitely need a home with a privacy fence or someone to only take me out on a leash. I walk well on a leash, but there's always room for improvement, right? I am a very happy, friendly girl who loves kids and other dogs. I really enjoy chasing cats so I should not have any in my forever home. I am all about fun! Tossing a ball, jumping on the trampoline, nice long walks in the evening, I love it all! Looking for a friend to love forever and have a blast along the way? I'm your girl! Go apply for me!

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.

Well since Prince Harry is now off the market, I guess that makes me the most eligible bachelor. I'm Henry. I am a 9 year old Great Dane/Bulldog mix, and I am 100lbs of love. I am a super strong boy so I will need a strong owner. I am good on a leash and I absolutely love to go on walks! I am leery of dogs I haven't met yet so if I could be an only dog that would be great. I am good with cats and older kids. Being a big boy I can easily knock down small kids without meaning to. I am a bit of a homebody and love to hang out with my person...I would love to live with someone who is home most of the time. Having someone to play fetch with but then snuggle up to would be amazing! I would love to have a home where we could play hard and nap even harder!

My adoption fee is sponsored and includes my spay/neuter, vaccinations, wellness exam, heartworm test, and microchip with free lifetime registration! If you're interested in meeting/adopting me, please visit rescueonespringfield.com/adoption-application/ and fill out the form!

Some people like roses. Some people like irises. I am looking for the people who like Lilies! My name is Lilith and my friends call me Lily. I am just as gorgeous as I sound with that as my name! I am a 10 month old, 39 pound lab/red tick hound mix. I am wonderful with other dogs and my foster mom thinks I would be great with respectful kiddos as well! I am a sweet, mellow little lady who will take a few days to warm up to my new people friends. I would do well in a home with another canine sibling to help me come out of my shell and a fenced in yard. I am house trained and crate trained. I need a best friend who will love me forever and help me grow into an even more wonderful adult! I crave attention and want to live with a family who will shower me with it! I hope I planted that seed in your brain and you're now filling out that application to adopt me so we can grow into a beautiful, happy family together!
