Hey there world! My name is Skye. I am 4 years old, 40 pounds, and I am just about as sweet as they come. I've been with Rescue One for a few weeks now and my foster parents think it's about time I announced myself. I'm a little scared to put myself out there, but here goes.

I came from an abusive background and am still working on learning to trust and that humans can be nice. I warm up to women faster than men. I've been doing well with potty training but am still not 100%. I HATE the leash, so that's a future project in the works. But I'm crate trained, good with kids, and like to play with cats. However, cows and chickens (and other animals to chase) may not be a good idea around me. I do well with submissive dogs but only because I'm scared of alpha personalities.

I love to play when I get up the courage and have only recently discovered these amazing things called "squeaky toys". I am looking for a home with lots of patience to help continue building trust and remind me that I am a good girl. I am looking for a family that will treat me like one of their own, who can give me a safe space in their home and hearts. I just know there is someone out there who can bring me to my full loving, tail wagging potential.

My adoption fee is $150 and includes my spay/neuter, vaccinations, wellness exam, heartworm test, and microchip with free lifetime registration! If you're interested in meeting/adopting me, please visit rescueonespringfield.com/adoption-application/ and fill out the form! Any questions about me or the adoption process can be directed to my friends at rescueonespringfield@gmail.com. I can't wait to hear from you!

*Remember, dogs are pack animals. Because of this, Rescue One does not adopt to outdoor-only homes*

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 call us at 417-880-9117 and we can set up a time.

Our Adoption Process...

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

Rescue One will have potential adopters fill out an adoption application, and then take the dog/cat on a week long adoption trial. At the end of that week (if all goes well) one of our representatives will visit your home for a home check, and then finalize all paperwork. The adoption fee will be paid at the time of the home check.

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