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.

Tuesday night we were sent this picture as a "last call". Just a happy dog sitting in Lebanon Animal Control smiling because he had no idea he was going to be euthanized the very next morning unless a rescue intervened.

Today he is STILL smiling because he is one of the new additions to Rescue One! What should we name this handsome lad? 💙

P.s.... He is sooooo sweet and needs a foster home!

With your arms, reach out to me, because in my dreams I see my road leading back to you!
I'm Georgia! I am a 6 year old, 28 lb, beagle mix. I am a loving and sassy girl! My dream family is anyone that will take me exploring, and love me as much as I love them! I am a gentle and spunky girl! I love to use my sniffer to scout the lawn, so a fenced-in yard would be paw-fect; no apartments for this curious gal, please! My foster mom told me I hurt my leg in my old life, but it is all healed up, and doesn't slow me down one bit - I can zoomie with the best of the pack! I am great with all dogs, older kiddos, and cats! No youngun's for this pooch, I like my beauty sleep! I have perfected potty training and am working on crate training, but know I will have this mastered in no time! I am a breeze on a leash, and love evening walks; puppucino's are on me!
Just like an old sweet song... keep me on your mind! Fill out an application 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. *

Lucille update!

Lucille sleeps likes she hasn't slept in years. She is still dealing with a lot of infection but is slowly getting her strength back. We are still waiting to hear if charges have been filed on her previous owner and will keep everyone updated.

Please do! I sure hope they are going to give them a harsh sentence.

God bless you all

I’m assuming she is on antibiotics?

This dog. ❤️❤️❤️

Lucille, you are safe. No one will hurt you ever again.

Hi sweet baby ❤️

Continued prayers

Xoxo sweet Lucille

Truly, a beautiful dog.

🙏🙏🙏

Poor sweetie. Thanks for helping her. 💙

Precious girl. Hope she recovers soon and someone will give her a forever home.

Poor baby 🙁 you can see it in her eyes that she's had a horrible things happen to her.

Precious baby.

Poor girl. She knows that she can rest and heal now that she is safe

Omg 😲 😱I just saw this.....please try to see to it that the people responsible for this horrible thing are prosecuted. Donating now. This breaks my heart 💔

Thank you for the update. Praying for this doggie.

Praying for Lucille healing and justice for her abuse! ❤️🐾🙏🏻

She is absolutely precious she will have a good life now ❤️

Thank you for staying active on previous owner, Just had a memory come up about Trooper and he never got his justice and he was shot and beaten with a pipe

She looks just like my big, stinky boy! I’ve never seen another pup like him! Praying Lucille heals quickly and finds a wonderful home.

Lucy I'm praying hard to the Dog Gods you get your justice

They MUST pay for this horrific act!! Animals are just as precious as children, they need our voice!!!!!

Praying for Lucille precious girl!! 🙏
