Helping you keep your pet healthy

The mission for Watermelon Mountain Ranch (WMR) is to make a positive difference in the lives of abandoned, unwanted and abused animals.


A primary focus towards reaching this goal, is to provide spay and neuter assistance to stop the overpopulation of animals within Central and Northern New Mexico.  Our spay and neuter program is essential to stem the tide of unwanted pets and unnecessary euthanasia.​ We offer assistance to families and individuals in need, so that they can fix their pet(s) and help stop the overpopulation problem that encompasses our community.  

We also offer a variety of other services that your pets need to keep them healthy and happy. Click on the program below for more information on the  on the spay & neuter program for the public, as well as once a month dental cleanings. 

For the safety of all of the animals at Watermelon Mountain Ranch, cats and dogs must meet certain requirements to obtain vet services at our clinic. Below are the requirements for cats and dogs at the Ranch.
