Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary With $150,000 in Grants to 50 Animal Shelters

With 15 rescue animals between them, it’s no secret Miranda Lambert and mom Bev Lambert have a soft spot in their hearts for fury, four-legged friends.

That’s why in 2009, Miranda and Bev started the MuttNation Foundation, an organization with the mission of ending animal suffering and homelessness on every front. The foundation has successfully raised millions of dollars to aid organizations, government institutions and entities that build animal shelters for better care and increased pet adoption.

In honor of MuttNation’s 10th anniversary in 2019, the organization is giving away $150,000 in surprise grants to 50 animals shelters across the country as part of its Mutts Across America initiative. Since 2015, Mutts Across America has awarded more than $750,000 in grants to 250 shelters.

“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,” says Miranda. “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.”
