Recently, tiny Liesl of the Von Trapp family began coughing and stopped nursing. We rushed her to the emergency vet where they diagnosed severe pneumonia. Currently she is getting fluids and in an oxygen chamber. She is in critical condition.

Update: Sadly, little Liesl put up a big fight, but was just too small and didn’t make it. While we mourn her loss, three more of her siblings are currently being treated. These babies are a little larger, so we are hopeful they will pull through. Thank you so, so much for your support.

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. Take Me Home has saved over 3,300 animals with a budget of just $250,000 per year.
