Capital Campaign

The demand for animal rescue services has never been greater. Every day, countless animals find themselves in distress, seeking refuge and a chance at a better life. Our current facilities are no longer sufficient to meet the growing needs of these animals

It’s time for us to take a bold step forward.

Rescue One has been helping abandoned and abused animals in Greene County and surrounding areas since 2014. Over those years, thousands of dogs and cats have received food, shelter, medical care, compassion, and ultimately their forever homes through the efforts of our dedicated staff and volunteers. While we work tirelessly to continue our mission, the fact remains that we are severely limited by our current facilities. As a no-kill rescue, we can only take in as many animals as our volunteers have space for, so we increasingly find ourselves forced to turn away animals just when they need us the most. The need is great, and the time is now. We are launching a capital campaign to build a medical facility, which will allow us to care for more animals, accommodate more special cases, and grow our education and outreach programs. We take tremendous pride in being the area’s only rescue that works closely with law enforcement. This is an exciting time for Rescue One, and our team is proud to be a part of this worthy effort. We hope you will join us as we build the future of Rescue One together.

On December 30th, 2021, we took a significant step toward our mission by purchasing 4.1 acres situated on the corner of Nichols and Eldon Streets in Springfield, MO. This new space will become the heart of our operations, allowing us to expand our reach and impact in the community.
