There’s no doubt about it; Miranda Lambert is a dog lover. She has seven rescue dogs, including three that are traveling with her on her Keeper of the Flame tour. They may fill up the tour bus, but they keep her happy while she’s away from home. Lambert wants every dog to have a loving home like hers have, and that’s why she started an organization with her mother to help.
In an interview with Good Housekeeping, Lambert said that her three travel companions, named Delta Dawn, Cher and Bellamy, help her stay grounded while she’s going from place to place performing. They’re not just familiar faces, they’re her family. When she’s with them, she feels almost like she’s at home. Lambert knows that many dogs aren’t as lucky as the ones she rescued, so in 2009, she and her mother, Bev, created MuttNation Foundation.
MuttNation’s mission is to raise awareness and to end animal cruelty and neglect. Its message is “Don’t forget – love a shelter pet”, and Lambert is doing her part to make sure that no one forgets. When her foundation rescued 54 Chihuahuas from an Oklahoma animal hoarder, Lambert knew just where to take them – the CMA Music Festival.
According to The Tennessean, Lambert brought the dogs to the festival in a pink mobile unit with kennels and a vet table. She told the crowd about her cause, and after that, the adorable dogs did the rest of the work. Country music fans could adopt a dog and take it home the same day, or at the end of the festival, to accommodate those who were in town visiting.It’s amazing and inspiring to see a celebrity like Lambert doing her part to help shelter dogs find loving homes. Lambert isn’t the only star who loves animals. Read about another celebrity dog advocate, Rachael Ray.
