Art shows, and thriftique - all inspired by Rosey

Red Rose Inspiration For Animals, Inc. is a nonprofit 501c3 based in Sedona, which promotes community-organized special events for animal rescue.

Established in 2009, Red Rose has entered their 10th season of promoting Art and Craft shows for the benefit of animals.

The last show for the spring season will be May 3-4 and then shows will continue in the fall this year.

Show times are 10 a.m to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday at 1405 West State Route 89A, Sedona (Olde Sedona Bar and Grill parking area) and are not affiliated with any other shows or promoters.

The desire to do more for these animals is great, but that requires additional funding. Therefore, Red Rose announced that they will be opening a Thrift Store and Artist Boutique creating a unique shop called the Red Rose Thriftique. The Thriftique will be supported completely by a volunteer team which will allow 100 percent of the proceeds to benefit Red Rose and the FREE animal rescue programs they have created. The Red Rose Thriftique will be opening soon at Bell Rock Plaza in the Village of Oak Creek.

Red Rose was inspired by a beautiful and beloved soul named Rosey. A Rottweiler/Pit-bull mix, she was a rescue pup herself. Rosey was always sweet and sympathetic to dogs who were suffering with emotional problems. She worked with various dogs helping to rehabilitate them before she passed from cancer.

Rosey's spirit lives on through Red Rose Inspiration for Animals, Inc. The organization which was created in her honor focuses on saving the lives of various animals in need. It is because of these types of animals that Red Rose is planning to have a rehab/healing center in the future.

From the beginning Red Rose has made a difference through collaborative efforts they initiated with specific rescue organizations in the Verde Valley to spay and neuter pets. They continue to provide partial or full funding for spay/neuter of both felines and canines. The majority of this funding is generated through Red Rose events. One of their goals is to end the homeless pet population in our community.

Red Rose Inspiration for Animals has donated over $40,000 to animal rescue through spay/neuter, emergency medical and direct support to other specially selected animal related organizations.
