About us

Take Me Home Pet Rescue was founded in 2008 to meet the growing needs of the homeless pet population. City shelters were becoming more and more crowded and there was a strong need for a no-kill, foster-based rescue in Richardson, Texas. With the addition of the Adoption Center in 2012, Take Me Home has saved over 3,300 animals with a budget of just $325,000 per year.
