Dan + Shay’s Dan Smyers & Wife Are Passionate About Animal Rescue & Their 3 Dogs: “Super Close to Our Hearts”

It’s no secret that Dan Smyers of Dan + Shay is passionate about animal rescue. Dan and wife Abby have teamed with Nashville’s Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue for numerous fundraisers and volunteer efforts over the years. In fact, the couple has three rescue dogs—Chief, Joy and Ghost—that have their own Instagram account.

As Dan jokingly told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, when Dan + Shay join Rascal Flatts’ Back to Us Tour for more than 25 dates this summer, he may actually get some sleep in his tour bunk without the pooches in his bed.

“[Abby and I] just got our third dog, and all of the dogs sleep in the bed, too, so I look forward to getting out on the road and sleeping in the bunk—I’ve got a little more room [laughing],” says Dan. “We’ve got three rescue [dogs]. We’re not even totally sure what [breeds] they are . . . Animal rescue is super close to our hearts and it takes up a lot of our time. It can be emotional, it can be tough sometimes, but to help an animal find his forever home is a cool thing to do. Having a platform with music and having super passionate fans who help out, too, it’s cool when there’s a fundraiser and fans gear up and get behind it. It’s cool to be able to do something good with what we’ve been given and blessed with.”
