Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation Surprises More Than 50 Animal Shelters With $189,000

With 18 pets of her own (five horses, two mini-horses, seven dogs and four cats), it’s no secret Miranda Lambert has a soft spot in her heart for fury, four-legged friends.

That’s why in 2009, Miranda and her mom, 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.

Miranda and Bev’s latest undertaking was providing more than 50 vetted animal shelters across the country with grants ranging from $3,000–$5,000, for a total contribution of $189,000, as part of their Mutts Across America program. The shelters were selected based on criteria that included adoption rate, volunteerism, fiscal responsibility, community presence and more. Mutts Across America has awarded 200-plus shelters more than $775,000 since being founded.

“I am amazed and humbled by the great work these shelters do, and so honored to be able to support their critical efforts on behalf of rescue animals,” said Miranda.
