Sedona AZ (September 19, 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. These are the only art shows throughout Sedona and the Verde Valley that proceeds benefit a non-profit for animal welfare. The Red Rose shows generate revenue for the various long term existing animal related programs, future rehabilitation center as well as potential veterinary spay and neuter clinic.
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 the last 8 months alone the organization has spent over $27,000.00 in veterinarian expenses running the programs. The focus is reducing the over pet population; preventing felines and canines from potentially being injured, abused, neglected or euthanized.
These shows take place exclusively at the Olde Sedona Bar and Grill at 1405 West Hwy 89A in West Sedona. The shows are not affiliated with any other events in town and the only shows to benefit animal welfare offering guilt free shopping for a worthy cause.
Red Rose is proud to represent some of the most fabulous and talented artist. Displaying everything from clothing, rugs, accessories, jewelry, home décor, paintings, pottery, glass art and much more.
