To celebrate their ten year anniversary, Miranda Lambert's MuttNation Foundation donated $150,000 to animal shelters across the U.S. as part of their Mutts Across America initiative. Grants were given to shelters in every state in America.
"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," Lambert says in a press release. "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."
Lambert founded MuttNation, a 501c3 non-profit organization, in 2009 with her mom, Bev Lambert. The foundation's mission is to promote the adoption of shelter pets and assist with rescuing animals in need. The mother and daughter team currently have 15 rescued pets between them.
Since Mutts Across America began in 2015, the program has donated over $750,000 to over 250 shelters (not including the most recent grants given in honor of MuttNation's 10-year anniversary).
The MuttNation Foundation is often present at Miranda Lambert concerts to give out information and collect donations. The organization is also present at CMA Fest each year to bring out shelter dogs available for adoption.
