The 17th Annual WMR Fur Ball is set for Saturday, November 2, 2019 and the buzz already is that it is going to break all records! Our theme this year is Fur Ball in Wonderland – We’re All Mad Here…About the Animals.

Steve Stucker is back as our fabulous Master of Ceremonies to keep the night fun and entertaining! There will be many other surprise celebrities and VIPs for you to mix and mingle with, so mark your calendars for Saturday, November 2, 2019.


We have once again teamed up with the  Marriott Pyramid North to bring you this ever-popular event that includes our famous live and silent auctions, the Lucky Duck Prize Pond, raffles, door prizes, and much more. 


You may not be aware, but as a Network Partner of Best Friends Animal Society (Utah), Watermelon Mountain Ranch’s lifesaving efforts reach far beyond Albuquerque’s city limits. Our Mercy Missions take us all over the southwest United States rescuing dogs and cats that have unfortunately landed at death’s door. This year has been particularly heartbreaking with the amount of abandoned, abused and neglected animals we have rescued and found loving homes for.


The Fur Ball funds many of these missions for the year, so please join us in support of our life-saving mission to save them all.
