Our Featured Pet
Please meet sweet Louise. Louise is a special dog we estimate to be around 2 years old. She came to Rescue One in August of 2015 along with her mom who we named Thelma. Thelma and Louise had been running on their own and our assessment of their past indicates that Louise was born and raised without any human interaction whatsoever. Thelma, who did show signs of being around people, recently found her perfect forever home, and now after many months of work with dedicated and patient Rescue One volunteers, it's time for a person to come along and adopt Louise too! This will not be a standard adoption as Louise's past requires slow introduction to new people, places and things. The person who adopts Louise will need to understand her unique needs and be able to work with her over the course of several visits to develop a bond of trust which will allow her to transition into her new home with as little interruption to the progress she's made thus far. Louise is a gentle, sweet, and of course shy, girl without an ounce of aggression in her. With the patient help of her foster mom, who is also a dog trainer and who has promised to provide lifelong support to Louise's new family to ensure her success and permanent placement, Louise has learned good house manners and is crate trained. Louise will benefit from having a doggie friend in her new home who will take her under their wing and show her the ropes. She would be fine in an apartment, but if Louise's new home is a house, she will need a privacy fenced area away from heavy traffic or city noises.
Louise will never overcome her hesitancy with humans, but this sweet girl will bring so much love to the special person who makes her a member of their family. We know that person is out there. Is it you?
Rescue One's Mission
We are a group of volunteers dedicated to the rescue and betterment of animals lives in our community. We are a foster based rescue located in Springfield, MO. All of the animals in our care live in foster homes until a forever home can be found. Our goal is to not only rescue animals in need but to also educate the public on responsible pet ownership.
Who We Are
Rescue one is a licensed, no kill rescue helping animals in SW Missouri. Animals in our care are spayed or neutered, receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment, and placed into nurturing foster homes while they wait for their permanent homes. We rescue animals in need without regard to age, breed or ease of placement.
Our adoption fee for dogs and puppies is $135. For special needs, senior dogs or cat it is $75. This helps to cover our vet fees to have the animal spayed or neutered and to give them their current vaccinations, wellness exam, heart worm testing and deworming. If you see someone you might be interested in adopting you email us at email@example.com! Also, check out our website at www.rescueonespringfield.com and like us on Facebook!! Our adoption events are the 1st and 3rd of every month! On the first Saturday of the month we are at Petsway on S. Glenstone from 10a-1p and on the 3rd Saturday we are at Petsway on W. Battlefield from 10a-1p! www.facebook.com/rescueonespringfield.
