Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Gifts $160,000 in Grants to 50 Animal Shelters

With 15 rescue animals between them—including dogs, cats and rabbits—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 11th anniversary in 2020, the organization is giving away $160,000 in surprise grants to 50 animals shelters—one in each state—as part of its Mutts Across America initiative. Since 2015, Mutts Across America has awarded more than $1 million in grants to more than 300 shelters.

“We both feel such a deep connection with animals and have so much compassion for the ones that need us the most,” says Miranda. “Mutts Across America lets us reward the hard-working shelters and give a ‘paw up’ to their lucky mutts. Our big message is that we encourage everyone to adopt from their local shelter or, if they’re not in the market for a new dog or cat, volunteer at their local rescue.”

This year’s selected shelters are below.
