Route 66 Rescue Inc.
About the Animal Shelter
There are several rescues in our area, and they cannot keep up with the need for a safe haven for abandoned and stray dogs. Route 66 Rescue is starting a campaign to raise funds for a no-kill shelter that accepts dogs from the public. We will continue rescuing while we travel the long road of establishing a shelter.
Shelters Service Area
Springfield, Nixa, Ozark, MO and the SW MO area.
We only adopt to inside homes, pets may not be allowed to run free or be tied out, we always take back a dog if it is no longer wanted. We require an adoption application and do a home visit before a dog is adopted. Our vetting protocol includes parvo/distemper, Bordetella, rabies vaccination, worming, spay/neuter, heartworm test, and microchip. Our fees are from $150 to $200.
Meet the Pets
After an adoption application is filed, we will make an appointment to bring the dog to the home for a meet and greet.
