Our team captured this precious elusive girl back on October 15, 2022.  She was in rough shape but we got her all of the veterinary care she needed, helped her gain weight, and now she is healthy, happy, and ready for her forever home or a new foster home.    Read more of her story.

About Us
Our Mission is to provide emergency search, rescue, capture,  and immediate veterinary treatment for the sick, injured, and elusive animals that we capture.  
Mutts and Mayhem Emergency Search and Rescue (MMESAR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2013 by two active duty Paramedics.   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 and immediately neighboring counties.       MMESAR does not charge a fee for our services.  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. *Cases outside of our service area are accepted on a case by case basis and are based on available resources.

Sick, Injured, and Elusive Search and Capture Our Team specializes in 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 state of the art aerial and ground equipment including thermal imaging, night vision, and live cameras to safely locate 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.  Elusive cases can take only hours to capture or sometimes weeks depending on the condition of the animal, accessibility, and terrain. When we capture a stray animal, he/she is immediately scanned for a microchip, Emergency Veterinary care is immediately provided if needed, and once stabilized, they are transported to the nearest Animal Control authority shelter in the jurisdiction where he/she was captured for a stray hold in hopes that an owner will claim him/her.  If not claimed, we network with our Rescue partners for placement, continuation of care and Adoption.  Every effort possible is made to find his/her potential owner.  In addition to transporting to the the local Animal Control agency, we also utilize social media, NextDoor, and social networking to search for an owners who may  have reported him/her as lost.   
Community-Based Search Teams In emergency situations where animals have fled from an emergency scene or been displaced after suffering a major trauma such as a vehicle collision, tornado, etc. and they are lost but their mechanism of injury suggests they may be unable to ambulate, MMESAR develops, deploys, activates and commands a foot search utilizing community search volunteers.  
Owner & Public Surrendered Animals We are not able to accept owner surrendered animals, as we do not have a brick and mortar shelter location and we do not operate a large Foster Home program.      
FOUND Stray Dogs and Cats - by members of the community We are unable to accept stray animals who are found by members of the public.  Stray animals and found pets should be scanned for a microchip identification and taken to the municipal shelter in the city or county where the animal was found in an effort to increase the likelihood of being reunited with their owner.  The shelter is the first place owners will look for their pet if he/she becomes lost.   In addition, if a stray animal is repeatedly escaping or said owner is allowing him/her to roam freely, the Animal Control authority will be able to document the situation and council the owner which will help keep that animal safer in the future.
