Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Is Helping to Empty Nashville Animal Shelter
Miranda Lambert is continuing to go above and beyond for animals in need. The country star announced on Instagram on Sunday (Oct. 6) that her nonprofit, the MuttNation Foundation, is helping out an overcrowded Nashville animal shelter.
Metro Nashville Animal Care and Control is at capacity and needs to find homes for several cats, dogs and other furry friends to open up space for other animals, so MuttNation has pledge to cover adoption fees on Saturday (Oct. 12).
"@nashanimalcare needs y’alls help! ... I fell in love with all of their fur babies when I visited a few months ago and you will too!" Lambert writes on Instagram. An accompanying three-photo gallery shows the singer posing with a dog at the shelter, as well as holding adorable baby bunny.
Lambert adopted two rabbits, Frida and Selena, from the shelter in June.
The "The House That Built Me" singer launched the MuttNation Foundation in 2009 with her mother Bev, who's long been rescuing shelter dogs. The main goals of the organization are to find homes for animals in shelters, as well as to transport animals to safety during natural disasters. Lambert and crew rescued more than 70 dogs in Houston, Texas, after Hurricane Harvey devastated the city in 2017.
The MuttNation Foundation celebrated its 10-year anniversary this year. Lambert honored the milestone with a $150,000 donation to shelters across the country.
"Music and rescue animals are the two driving forces in my life," says Lambert, "and I’m so fortunate that the success I’ve had with my music allows me to help shelter animals more than I dreamed possible."
The country superstar is currently on her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour, which will run through Nov. 23.
