Miranda is celebrating Valentine’s Day by helping out a cause near and dear to her heart… animal shelters.
According to People Magazine, Miranda and MuttNation announced its expanded Share the Love program back in December. Animal lovers that applied for the program, nominated their local animal shelter to receive one of 15 MuttNation Foundation $1000 grants.
“Shelter pets and the people who care for them have the biggest hearts and sharing the love for Valentine’s Day feels so right,” Miranda Lambert said in a statement.
“It’s amazing to have such an overwhelming response to our program. The number of people who participated demonstrates the commitment and value that community members provide to their local shelters. And, especially given how difficult this year’s been — it just means so much.”
And for this Valentine’s Day, the 15 winners have been selected.
