Miranda Lambert and her mom Bev were rescuing animals long before Miranda was the superstar that she is today.
In 2009 however, they decided to make things official and co-founded MuttNation Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit with a mission to promote the adoption of shelter animals, assist with animal transport and help during times of natural disaster. With this being the 10-year anniversary of MuttNation, the team decided to do something big and donated 150k in surprise grants to animal shelters across the country.
“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,” the country superstar said, adding “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.”
To date, their Mutts Across America initiative has supported 250 shelters with more than $750,000.
