Just like the good Texas woman that she is, Miranda Lambert showed up to the beleaguered city of Houston to personally help rescue stranded animals. She reported via social media that she was in Conroe, a city just north of Houston.
On Monday Lambert dispatched her Mutt Nation Foundation charity team to the Texas Gulf Coast to offer aid and assistance to animals being displaced by the storm. They weren’t on their own for long, however. Lambert came along too.
So far Mutt Nation rescued 72 animals, some of whom Lambert is fostering herself. “There are so many more,” she said in a video.
Natural disasters commonly cause mass displacement of animals due to the animals panicking and getting away from owners. Owners also sometimes become separated from their animals because of flood waters that rise swiftly, preventing people from returning home. Mutt Nation Foundation is rescuing trapped animals as well as providing food and shelter to the lost pets of hurricane victims.

Lambert took in one dog who then had puppies. Lambert decided to name the mama after her best friend, country singer Ashley Monroe, who also just had a baby.
