MMESAR was founded in 2013 by two active duty Paramedics. As we approach our tenth year of professional emergency search and capture, we are busier than we have ever been.

Our Team specializes in locating and capturing sick, injured, and elusive animals where all traditional measures have failed, or in emergency situations where an animal has fled the scene after a major vehicle collision, or they have been displaced during a major event or disaster.   We work around the clock using aerial and ground equipment including thermal imaging, night vision, and live cellular cameras to safely locate, track, and capture animals, and we provide immediate lifesaving veterinary treatment.  

Elusive capture cases are triaged and accepted based on their medical and trauma urgency, or situations where animal control or law enforcement have deemed a situation as urgent. MMESAR also deploys as First Responders in Disasters involving Animals. 

In post traumatic events, we increase animal discovery and survival by developing & activating local, community-based search teams, and providing immediate lifesaving treatment & transport of sick and injured animals.  We also serve in hosting community Microchipping events to help lost pets be reunited with their families.

In the past year, our emergency response requests have drastically increased as well as the number of elusive stray dogs needing our specialized Team. We receive multiple requests per day for an animal in need and in order to sustain this critical service to animals and to the community, we need your support!

Giving Activity


Our mission is to locate and capture sick, injured, and elusive dogs where all traditional measures have failed and provide them with veterinary treatment.


We currently need funding for life saving Emergency Veterinary care, to maintain our field capture and rescue operations equipment, wet dog food for our pre-capture feeding stations, and funding for other program related expenses.

Our general operating and administrative expenses are sponsored by our Board of Directors.
