Animal service dedicates van
Watermelon Mountain Ranch has dedicated its new mobile and satellite adoption van to the memory of Officer Don Johnston, who worked in Bernalillo for over twelve years.
Sophia DiClemente, volunteer executive director of Watermelon, said, “Don’s passing is a tragedy and it has affected us greatly. While we have been personal friends for seven years during which time we rescued many animals together, it is doubly heartbreaking, as we had hired him as our transportation director the day before his death. After twelve years of animal control, he was looking forward to joining us and driving our animals to the various adoption sites and to working at Watermelon Mountain Ranch once it was built. Having him die before he could enjoy even one day of his hard-earned retirement just breaks my heart. He saved the lives of countless animals, taking them home sometimes until he could find a place for them, rather than turn them into the pound where they faced certain death. He was a caring and wonderful man who went well beyond the call of duty. All of us in the animal rescue business will miss him.”
