Hi! My name is Duke! I am an energetic, loving, oversized lap dog.  I have never met a stranger I did not like- as long as they are willing to give me all of their attention! I am willing to do just about anything as long as I can be with you - walks, cuddles, playtime, naps, you name it! I do not like to be isolated from you but I seem to manage just fine in my kennel while  Read more

About Us
Our Mission is to provide emergency search, rescue, capture, recovery, 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 recovery phases for sick, injured, and elusive animals in Collin County and East Denton County, Texas.     MMESAR does not charge a fee for our services as we are first responders in emergencies involving animals.  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 natural 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 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, quarantined, and the local Animal Control agency is notified.  Emergency Veterinary care is immediately provided if needed.  Every effort possible is made to find his/her potential owner.  In addition to notifying 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.    At the time of capture if he/she is medically and hemodynamically stable, animals are then transferred to the local Animal Control Shelter within the jurisdiction of his/her capture.  Depending on availability, stable animals may be transferred to one of our Rescue partners for continuation of care and Adoption. 
Intake Occasionally, MMESAR  will intake an animal that we capture if we have an experienced medical and social rehabilitative foster home available.  Once rehabilitated and medically cleared, we will find him/her a forever home through our Adoption program.  Once an animal is available for adoption, we will arrange a "meet and greet" by appointment where we will offer a trial sleep-over period to help ensure the Adoption is a perfect fit for everyone.  
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 deploys, develops, 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.
