My name is Cocoa. I'm a 9 year old Shepherd mix weighing about 65 pounds. I'm a really sweet senior girl with plenty of spunk left! I am house and crate trained. I would prefer to have your attention all to myself. I love to play outside as much as possible, so a fenced yard where I can sunbathe would be fantastic. I love toys, or I should clarify, I love to destroy toys. Its a mission that I have set for myself. My foster mom says I am sweet as can be and best part is I rarely bark. I also know basic commands and overall just the perfect dog. I am diabetic and require insulin daily. This does make me thirsty, which means I need to potty frequently. So I would love a forever family that doesn't leave me alone all day and are able administer insulin is a must! I'm active for my age and would love a family that can keep up with me! I don't think I'm asking for too much in my forever home! I can't wait to meet you!

*I recently received a grant from the Petfinder Foundation to cover SIX MONTHS of my insulin costs for my new family! Now there is no reason not to come and meet me!*

About Rescue One

About Our Rescue Group...

Rescue One is 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.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We host adoption events at Petsway in Springfield on Glenstone the 1st Saturday of the month and Petsway in Springfield on Battlefield the 3rd Saturday of the month. We are available other times as well if you see an animal you are interested in adopting. Please fill out an application at rescueonespringfield.com/adoption-application/ if there is a dog you are interested in adopting.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees are as follows: $150 for dogs/puppies and $75 for senior/special needs dogs.

Rescue One will have potential adopters fill out an adoption application, and if the application is approved, set up a time to meet the pet and for the foster home to do a home check. The dog can then be taken on a week long adoption trial. At the end of the trial, the adoption can be finalized by notifying the dog's foster, and your adoption fee will be deposited and the dog's vet records released to you.

The only 'blanket' requirement Rescue One has in place is that no animal is to be an outdoor-only pet. No exceptions.
