WMR was the dream of Sophia and Lee Di Clemente. In 1996 they moved to the Albuquerque area and learned that there were thousands of lost, abandoned, and stray animals being euthanized every year in New Mexico. Wanting to make a difference, they began their rescue efforts and created Watermelon Mountain Ranch. Sophia and Lee teamed up with a group of like-minded volunteers and began to rescue and find homes for animals in Sandoval county and Albuquerque. Since that time, their rescue efforts have expanded to most of the counties in central and northern New Mexico. From its small beginnings to the present time, Watermelon Mountain Ranch has rescued and adopted out thousands of animals into loving homes. The dream has become a reality, and Watermelon Mountain Ranch is one of the premier non-profit facilities in the Southwest.
"All who enter here will find love" -Sophia DiClemente
Jusani Culture was born out of the founder’s, Melissa Salinas, strong desire to help animal shelters throughout the nation educate Americans about pet care, pet responsibility and respect for companion animals. What started out as a line of organic tees has now become a lifestyle brand that provides funding for the millions of unwanted pets in America that enter shelter doors every year.
Salinas is also creating the “eco-haute”
