Miranda Lambert Pairs With the Pedigree Feeding Project
Miranda Lambert is depending on her fellow fans of four-legged friends to help her decide the location for the next Pedigree Feeding Project benefit, which will raise money to provide free dog food for local animal shelters.
The 'Mama's Broken Heart' singer has teamed up with the nationwide campaign. "It's so cool for me to be part of it because my passions are music and animals," shares Lambert (quote via ABC News.)
"They are looking for a new community, and they will give shelters in that community food for a year and it's saved shelters up to $100,000 in the past so they are able to use that money for other things," Lambert says of her efforts. "And what I love about it: is that it's going to draw so much attention and awareness to shelters across the country."
Lambert's latest involvement isn't the first goodwill effort on the singer's part when it comes to animal advocacy. The self-professed dog fanatic is a founding member of MuttNation, an organization that helps build better animal shelters, increase pet adoption and fund spay and neuter programs.
Last year, Lambert headlined the fifth annual Caws for the Paws concert, an event designed to help fund MuttNation. The event is closing in on one million dollars raised since its inception.
Fans hoping to hold the next Pedigree Feeding Project benefit their community can visit the organization's official Facebook page to submit their hometown. Lambert will announce the names of the five communities that have been selected as finalists in the search. America will then vote to determine the next community to participate in the Pedigree Feeding Project.
