Miranda Lambert's Charity Is Rescuing Dozens Of Dogs Affected By Hurricane Harvey

MuttNation is doing its part for Texas pets.

It's been inspiring to see how many celebrities have generously donated to Hurricane Harvey relief in recent days. For country star Miranda Lambert, the focus is on Texas's furry friends β€” and thanks to her MuttNation Foundation, dozens of dogs have been brought to safety.



The Texas native founded MuttNation in 2009 with her mom Bev Lambert to "shine the spotlight on rescue animals and shelters." The organization headed to Houston earlier this week with several vans and buses. "It was important to our AMAZING founder, @mirandalambert that we do our part for her home state!" MuttNation's Instagram announced, adding that the foundation would give relief to municipal shelters in the area by transporting dogs who were already housed there to make room for those displaced by the storm.

According to Us Weekly, Lambert herself has joined the foundation's efforts. Earlier this week, she posted on Instagram that MuttNation had rescued 72 dogs in one day, to be moved to safe shelters around the country. That included a dog who had just given birth. 

Lambert posted a photo of the pups, who were staying with her, and said she named the mama dog Ashley after fellow country singer Ashley Monroe, who just had her own baby. She later updated followers to say that more than 70 dogs were sent to the foundation's shelter in Oklahoma.

If you want to help MuttNation's efforts, you can donate money on its website. The foundation also posted the need for supplies such as paper towels, pet food, toys, and blankets, with drop-off locations listed on its Instagram

Those who can't deliver things in person can also take a look at the foundation's Amazon wishlist and purchase requested supplies so that Lambert and her team have everything they need to ensure animals affected by the storm can be well cared for.
