This is a love-love situation.

Back for another adorable year after canceling its 2020 event, Paws at the Net will return Aug. 6-8. This charity tennis tournament will once again be held at the Rebsamen Tennis Center with proceeds going to Central Arkansas Rescue Effort for Animals (CARE).

The tourney is USTA-sanctioned and part of the Arkansas Cup. Attendees get free entry to enjoy competitive matches, food, drinks, vendors, auctions and more, including the chance to meet some of CARE’s rescued cats and dogs that are up for adoption.

CARE is a nonprofit animal rescue and spay/neuter organization whose purpose is to rescue dogs and cats facing euthanasia from local animal control facilities and to decrease the number of homeless and abandoned animals through aggressive spay/neuter programs, rescuing thousands and providing free sterilizations for thousands more.
