Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation is something that is very near and dear to her heart. In addition to her successful country music career, she continues to work hard to raise awareness for the lives of shelter animals. Over the past few years, the foundation has been able to raise almost $2 million to better the quality of life for shelter dogs.
For the second consecutive year, the MuttNation Foundation is ecstatic to continue their annual Mutts Across America: 50 States/50 Shelters initiative. In January alone a total of $206,000 was distributed to shelters across the United States, with each state receiving a minimum donation of $3,000 per individual shelter.
The shelters were chosen after meeting specific criteria concerning high adoption and low euthanasia rates, a focus on volunteerism and individual fundraising, financial responsibility, online presence, spay and neutering and more.
I feel so passionately about helping all animals and I’m thrilled that we have once again been able to give to phenomenal shelters all across the country. The people at these shelters do such amazing work day in and day out and are truly heroes for the animals.” Miranda Lambert stated in a recent press release.
MNF continues to support their partners in animal rescue at The American Humane Association and Northshore Animal League as well as Miranda’s home town shelters, Redemption Ranch in OK and Pet Fur People in East Texas.
A complete list of the shelters that received donations is available at MuttNationFoundation.
