Dog Boarding in McKinney

McKinney is located just a few minutes north of Dallas. This large suburb is constantly growing, and as more people move to the area, unfortunately, more homeless dogs are found roaming the streets. Luckily, there are rescues and shelters in the area that can care for these animals until they find new homes. Two of the most well-known shelters in the area are Mutts and Mayhem Animal Rescue and the SPCA of Texas.

Mutts and Mayhem Animal Rescue a non-profit rescue that was founded in 2013 by two active-duty paramedics. The organization is dedicated to providing search and rescue for pets after natural disasters and other emergencies, including vehicle accidents, in the North Texas area. In addition to search and rescue services, the organization helps capture sick or homeless animals roaming the streets. All animals in the group’s care are given medical attention and put up for adoption. To prevent more unwanted animals in the area, Mutts and Mayhem spays and neuters all animals before they can be adopted.

The SPCA of Texas has two shelters and three spay/neuter clinics located in Dallas and McKinney. The organization is a non-profit and relies on donations, fundraisers, and adoption fees to continue to provide care for animals in need. The organization began helping animals in 1938 and still seeks to provide exceptional care to all creatures that come through its doors. While the shelter is known for helping cats and dogs, it also cares for horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, goats, and more!
