If you ONLY have your Missouri Department of Agriculture and no 501c3, contact Karen Prescott, the head of the health department, to find out if you can become an approved pulling rescue: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you ONLY have your MO Dept. of Agriculture License (and yet to be approved by the shelter) OR are from out of state and have your 501c3 you can contact Halfway Home Rescue, Latichia Duffy at email@example.com to have a dog tagged. SEE BELOW FOR THEIR REQUIREMENTS AND FEES!!!!!!!!!!!
Dogs that are not on stray hold can be PTS on Wednesdays. For any rescue or adopter that wants to have a dog tagged for them by Halfway Home Rescue, an email must be sent to Latichia Duffy by 4 pm CST Tuesdays.
IF AN EMAIL IS NOT SENT TO TAG A DOG BY 4:30pm CST ON TUESDAYS, THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THE DOG WILL BE SAFE THE NEXT MORNING FROM EUTH. All emails sent to tag a dog will get confirmation during the shelters open hours.
Animals in the "Currently Housed" are still on stray hold and not available for release until their 5 day hold is up, which has to include one full Saturday stay. Once they are moved to the "Our Adoptable" list on Petfinder they are considered urgent!
Having a dog pulled from Springfield Animal Control by HALFWAY HOME RESCUE: There is a $15.00 pull fee for each animal…the pull fee covers dhlp, bordetella and rabies (if old enough.) Boarding is available at $7.00 per day per animal. ALL the dogs that come from the Springfield pound WILL HAVE KENNEL COUGH! We can start the dogs on antibiotics $2.20 per day per dog…some dogs recover quickly while others may take a few weeks. Some dogs require extra care while at our facility such as de worming, flea medication etc…this will cost extra but I always try to talk with the receiving rescue before administering anything beyond the basics. The receiving rescue would be responsible for all additional care expenses. All transports require health certificates which cost $10.00 per animal. Leash and collar is required for all transport unless you are picking up the animal, the cost is $5.00 for the pair. A copy of your 501 c 3 and or rescue licenses from your state is required. All invoices must be paid the night before transports leave…We use paypal for all our transactions. We DO NOT transport so arrangements must be made for pick up at our Collins Missouri location. We are happy to assist with dogs that are coming from the pound but want everyone to know our facility is all outdoor, with dog houses and hay. Our shelter was completed in May 2010 and burned down Dec. 27, 2010 so we have NO indoor facility at this time. ALL the dogs will smell bad since we cannot bathe them…All tiny dogs will be kept inside our home and will begin crate training and rotate outside to exercise pens. If this does not work for you or your rescue please DO NOT ask me to tag an animal and leave that animal without a place to go! If you have any questions or concerns please call me at 417-693-7555 DO NOT leave a message if you need to talk to me call me back until I answer the phone!

The two MOST urgent are the first dog, #2895 and the third dog, Collie girl #2925 because they are no longer on stray hold -- but ALL are in danger at this place!
As for the second dog - Karelian Bear Dog Mix MY @ss!! Those people wouldn't know a Karelian Bear dog if it knocked on the door for dinner!! This looks much more like a BC smoothie to me - and a MUCH more likely mix to find in this area.
Here is a description of A KBD:
•Spitz-like in appearance •Height: 18-23 inches (at shoulder) •Weight: 44-50 pounds •The tail is high set and carried in an arch over the back. It is not altered but some are born with a bobtail •The ears are carried erect and are not altered •Eyes are light in color, usually yellow, adding a piercing stare to the already intense attention the dog gives to its surroundings •Not recommended as a family pet or for the first time dog owner •Extremely hard to obtain outside its native country
They probably had a hard time identifying the second dog because it does not have defeated, terrified, sad demeanor that every other dog photo I have seen from this place has. A friendly looking dog is probably exotic to them. Hoping for the best for all three of them!
This shelter lists strays on"hold" for five business days, and then moves them to the "short timer" list - which is "adoptable" -BUT ONLY to rescues. No public adoptions at this place. So, unless smiling dog is reclaimed by his owner, he will be moved to the other list, and the clock will tick down to his death - like the other two - unless a rescue steps in to save him.
I heard back from Robin with Mo-kan BCR regarding the BC smoothie who said " we are looking into it " ..I did mention the first boy as well....Paws crossed for both of them!!! The third dog Collie girl #2925 is being tagged for rescue & will be leaving Monday
