Mission Statement

O ur mission is the training and fielding of search dogs and personnel to help locate missing persons.

Description

Mountain Canine Corps (MCC) is a nonprofit search and rescue (SAR) organization that is composed of all volunteers. Our mission is the training and fielding of search dogs and personnel to help locate missing persons. Our motto is the motto of the SAR community- "that others may live." We focus primarily on training for and participating in SAR missions in the wilderness setting.

MCC is a member of the New Mexico Emergency Services Council New Mexico Emergency Services Council and the National Association for Search and Rescue . As part of the search and rescue community in New Mexico, we are called out for searches, often along with numerous other teams, through the Incident Command System. The State Police initiates all SAR missions in NM.

MCC, or MC "squared", was founded in 1986 and we currently have 29 members, 9 mission ready dogs, and 3 dogs in training. We are proud to be part of the search and rescue community in New Mexico. As a SAR team, a variety of training outside of dog and scent theory training is crucial for our members in order for us to contribute to missions in a safe and meaningful way; we also train in areas such as navigation, map and compass, wilderness medicine, crime scene preservation, amateur radio, and mantracking. Our team has 15 licensed HAM radio operators, 5 certified Wilderness First Responders, and numerous Wilderness Advanced First Aid certificated members. Of course, we also need to learn dog first aid! In addition, many of our members contribute to missions in base camp as we also have a number of section chief- and field coordinator-trained individuals on the team.
