Rescue one is a licensed, no kill rescue helping animals in Southwest Missouri. Animals in our care are spayed or neutered, receive all appropriate veterinary care, 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 goal is to not only rescue but to also educate the public on responsible pet ownership. Rescue One strives to rescue abused, neglected and homeless animals and place them in loving homes. Rescue One is a 100% non-profit organization run entirely by dedicated volunteers who offer their time and resources to house, train, transport and care for the animals in our care. We are a foster based rescue located in Springfield, MO.
The adoption process begins when you complete an online Adoption Application, naming either one or a few of our Available Animals or providing a description of the type of animal you hope to adopt. Completing an application does not restrict you to a specific animal, nor does it obligate you to adopt. Once Rescue One has received your application and determined that you are a good match for the requested, the foster parent will contact you to arrange a time for you to meet the animal. If you meet the animal and think it is the perfect fit, we ask that you take the animal home for a week before we complete the adoption process. A home check will be completed before the animal is placed in your home. We feel that it takes more than a day to verify a perfect fit for your home. During the week you will be able to make sure this animal interacts well with your family, current pets and your lifestyle. If after your week you decide you would like to adopt, we will complete the adoption at that time and you will pay the adoption fee for the animal.
