Since 1996, WMR has grown to be New Mexico’s largest no kill animal shelter, rescuing abused, abandoned and neglected animals all over the southwest. Watermelon Mountain Ranch is a recognized Networking Partner of Best Friends Animal Society, and has saved the lives of over 150,000 dogs, cats, and more.
Our 10-acre facility is a fully functioning animal care center complete with a veterinary clinic, an animal retirement village, dog cottages, a free roam cattery, and a modest administration building.
We fundraise year-round to support our low cost spay/neuter clinics, outreach programs for the special needs community and at-risk youth, disaster relief and rescue for abandoned pets, and our foster and adoption programs.
