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 Miranda and Bev started the MuttNation Foundation in 2009, 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 launched a new Shelter Pet Adoption program, SPA Days, which was developed to help animal rescue facilities increase their adoption numbers. The program was rolled out with five shelters—FurKids of Atlanta, SCRAPS (WA), APA Adoption Center of Missouri, Corridor Rescue (TX), and South Suburban Humane Society of Chicago—and provided each rescue with a “toolkit” that included collars for their adoptable dogs, a MuttNation banner customized with their shelter’s name, and a check for $1,000 to help cover the costs of their event, as well as lots of promotional support through MuttNation’s social media channels.
More than 130 animals found forever homes through SPA Days, with each shelter claiming their highest single-day adoption rate.
“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.”
