Red Rose helps pet owners spay and neuter animal companions for free, provides emergency medical services for homeless felines and canines and often assists pet owners on a fixed income to get their animal the veterinary care they desperately need. In addition to a variety of other programs this group is one of the few organizations in the Verde Valley providing TNR (trap, neuter and return) of feral felines helping to trap, spay/neuter, vaccinate, and provide necessary medical treatment for them.
