Miranda Lambert isn’t coming to the CMA Music Festival alone this year. Instead, she’s bringing along some of her rescue dogs in hopes to find them their forever homes.
Recently, Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation rescued 54 Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes from an Oklahoma hoarding situation. They ranged in age from puppies to seniors and many of them suffer from injury and illness.
The dogs rescued from Oklahoma were brought to Redemption Ranch for care and rehabilitation and now some of them, along with other dogs from the rescue, will be brought to Nashville for a second chance to find a loving family.
“MuttNation is coming to CMA Fest, and we’re just going to try and bring awareness and get these dogs adopted,” Lambert said.
Lambert hopes the rescue’s time in Nashville will help increase awareness about how many homeless and neglected animals are in need of a home.
“It’s so sad,” she says. “You see little dogs that have never had any love and care and you think, ‘Oh my God, is there 50 loving homes out there or these babies?’ “
Fans interested in adopting can find the pink MuttNation Foundation mobile inside Music City Center during Fan Fair X from noon to 3 p.m. beginning Thursday, June 9 through Sunday, June 12.
The adoption fee of $100 includes spay/neuter, all shots, a vet check and microchipping. Adoptive families can take home their newest pet the same day or if you’re visiting from out of town and can’t take them immediately, MuttNation will care for them through the Monday following CMA Fest.
With almost 90,000 people at last year’s CMA Music Festival there’s a good chance Lambert’s rescue pups will find a good home over the five-day event. Hopefully she’ll update us with many happily ever afters.
