Country superstar Miranda Lambert is not just a hitmaker, she’s also known for being an animal lover and champion. Her non-profit organization, MuttNation Foundation, has made a $150,000 donation to animal shelters across the United States to celebrate the charity’s ten-year anniversary.
In 2009, Miranda and her mother founded Muttnation Foundation, which now has made it a little easier for others to rescue animals because animal shelters across the country are waiving adoption fees.
Miranda’s has awarded the $150,000 grant to 50 shelters in all 50 states.
“There’s a reason dogs like country music. Thank you Miranda Lambert for your generous donation that allows SAS to waive adoption fees for a limited time,” the Scituate Animal Shelter of Massachusetts wrote on Facebook. “Lower fees = more dogs finding homes. We love you, Miranda!”
The “Mutts Across America” campaign has donated more than $750,000 in grants to more than 250 shelters since it started in 2015.
MuttNation Foundation also holds adoption drives at Miranda’s concerts, the CMA Music Fest, and the Grand Ole Opry.
In a press release, Miranda says: “Music and rescue animals are the two driving forces in my life 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. MuttNation’s 10-year milestone is amazing and what we’ve been able to accomplish gets better every year. Just in this past year, alone, we helped 1,776 shelter pets find their forever homes.”
