MMESAR was founded in 2013 by two active duty Paramedics. As we approach our ninth year of professional emergency search and capture, we are busier than we have ever been. In the past year, our emergency response requests have drastically increased as well as the number of elusive stray dogs and cats 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!

Although our Command Team leaders are FEMA certified, we receive no federal or state funding and we rely solely on donations from generous individuals, businesses, foundations and grants to support our programs and services. MMESAR does not charge a fee for our services.


Mutts & Mayhem Emergency Search and Rescue (MMESAR) operates a unique and specialized boots on the ground Team providing a coordinated effort in the response, search, rescue, and capture phases for sick, injured, and elusive animals in Collin County, Texas and immediate bordering areas. 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.


We currently need funding for life saving Emergency Veterinary care, to maintain our field capture and rescue operations equipment, wet dog and cat 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.
