Watermelon Mountain Ranch is is a non-profit organization and New Mexico's largest no-kill animal shelter. We were established in 1996 to create a safe haven for the homeless, abandoned and abused pets. We are a pet placement organization that is made up of our volunteers and a small paid staff to care for our animals daily.
To foster the animal-human bond, WMR supports the efforts that encourage the positive interaction of children, adults and seniors with animals through outreach, educational, interactive and therapeutic programs. Our other programs include the Kasey Says In-school Reading and Safety Program, Kids at Risk Animal Welfare Program, Grief Support Group, 4-H and many more.
