CARE’s 9th Annual Paws on the Runway: Dare to Care

Guest Blog by Ashley Younger, CARE Executive Director

Central Arkansas Rescue Effort for Animals, Inc. (CARE) hosts one of its most visible and popular events on May 12 at Next Level Events. CARE’s 9th annual Paws on the Runway will honor the beloved memory of Lyndae Sain Allison and recognize her many contributions to the animal-welfare community.

Becky Rogers of B 98.5 and THV’s Craig O’Neill will serve as co-emcees. Guests will enjoy food, beverages and silent and live auctions while watching Little Rock’s movers and shakers strut the runway. Guests also will have the opportunity to meet a few of CARE’s adoptable animals. We dare our guests not to fall in love with our furry friends.


CARE’s mission is to conduct animal rescue by providing medical care and placing animals facing impending euthanasia into foster and permanent homes, to increase awareness for the need to sterilize pets to reduce overpopulation, to establish a mobile spay/neuter clinic, and to work with and advise animal shelters in Central Arkansas on animal-welfare issues. Since its founding in 1998, CARE has saved the lives of more than 3,700 cats and dogs and aided in the sterilization of more than 11,000 pets.
