Sedona AZ (September 26, 2019) – Red Rose Inspiration For Animals is a local 501c3 nonprofit that supports animal welfare and has been promoting Art Shows in West Sedona since 2009. The Art Shows help the non-profit generate revenue for the various long term existing animal related programs, future rehabilitation center as well as potential veterinary spay and neuter clinic.
In 2014 the vision for the Red Rose Thriftique a unique thrift store and artist boutique originated from the art shows. Wanting to provide an upscale, unique, quality, inexpensive, one of a kind shopping experience for visitors as well as locals offering guilt free shopping for a cause. In 2018 the Thriftique was voted “Best Boutique” by the Reader’s Choice Awards.
Just recently in 2019 the expansion to the Red Rose Barkin Basement opened offering the organization additional space for furniture, wall art, home décor, and more. Both thrift stores are located in the Bell Rock Plaza in Village of Oak Creek.
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. The focus is reducing the over pet population; preventing felines and canines from potentially being injured, abused, neglected or euthanized.
