Take Me Home Pet Rescue (TMHPR), located in Richardson, TX, is a 100% nonprofit organization committed to reducing our homeless pet overpopulation. All rescued dogs and cats are sterilized, microchipped, and provided with necessary medical care, before being adopted. Reference checks and home visits are completed ensuring a good fit. Our rescued pets live in foster homes until adopted to experience the love of a “real family” while waiting for their very own forever homes.

In Summer 2020 we moved into our new Pet Adoption Center. It is located at 580 W Arapaho Rd Suite 433, Richardson, Texas 75080. The Center is our main office, a place to store supplies, isolation for incoming dogs and cats and it also provides us a place to hold our weekend adoption events.

Each dog and cat receives individualized and appropriate medical care. Of course each pet is also sterilized, vaccinated, wormed, and microchipped. We often must provide heart worm treatment, fix orthopedic fractures, and repair internal injuries. Pregnant or nursing dogs and cats are also often accepted into our program.

Our overall goal is to be sure the pet is healthy, sterilized, and a good match for the potential adopter in an effort to reduce any chance that the pet will be returned. All potential adopters are carefully screened to be sure that the personality and energy level of both the pet and pet family are a good fit.
