There are so many cats, dogs, puppies and kittens available for adoption at Watermelon Mountain Ranch. Click one of the buttons below to learn more about the cats and dogs that are waiting for their forever homes and how to volunteer to become a foster.

As of 3/20/20 all ranch and foster based adoptions are being done by appointment only. Our main facility in Northern Rio Rancho will not be open to the general public. Please contact us to set up an appointment to see a dog or cat you may be interested in. Our cattery's inside of Petsmart on Coors/Montano & Coors/Ellison are still open to the public with some restrictions. Our Cottonwood Mall location has been closed until further notice with all dogs being moved to foster care and cats to alternate centers.

Thank you so much for your continued support during this unprecedented time

Team Watermelon
