Cottonwood AZ (July 8, 2016) – Red Rose Re-Tails Thrift, the pop-up store that opened its doors in August of 2015 in Cottonwood announced at the beginning of June that it would be closing by the end of that month. Regular shoppers, and community members voiced their sadness, to see one of their favorite thrift stores leaving. When told the reasons why, they understood completely. “It’s about the animals, and it always has been.”
Red Rose Inspiration for Animals is going to be putting more resources and hard work into the nine different animal rescue and assistance programs, as well as the many animals in their direct care, currently at 29 without a facility. Already people have witnessed what focusing these resources can yield, when they welcome a new family member into their home that had been fostered by the Red Rose team.
“[Petey] is such a sweet boy! We are so lucky to have been able to adopt him from you guys [Red Rose Inspiration for Animals]! I cannot thank you enough! He came to us already potty trained, crate trained, and he slept through the night. He and my youngest daughter have become best friends. They follow each other around all day long. I even find them sleeping together. Kyen (our other dog) and [Petey] have so much fun together. They play and play and play. Thank you again for letting us adopt him.” – Sherri (Proud parent of a Red Rose Inspiration Puppy)
Red Rose Inspiration for Animals doesn’t simply send a dog or a cat away to a new home without first knowing that that animal will have hit the jackpot with their new family; and such was the case with Petey, now named ‘Kona,’ with his new loving family. He is just one of many animals who have come to Red Rose Inspiration for Animals with no home or future in sight. Young kittens, senior dogs, loving puppies, and beautiful cats all await loving forever homes, and wait patiently in the care of the Red Rose team.
Beyond the animals in Red Rose care, there are the varied rescue and assistance programs, fundraising art shows, and the thrift store. Red Rose Inspiration for Animals continues to be a strong supporter of the community and the Verde Valley – assisting families with spay and neuter services, working diligently on feral cat trapping and release, and so much more.
