How Did Miranda Lambert Help Save 40 Homeless Dogs?
September 12, 2013 | By Kerri Fivecoat-Campbell
It’s always a good thing when famous people use their celebrity to help our four-legged kids in need. This past weekend, Miranda Lambert was not only a country music star, but was the star for more than 40 shelter dogs that were adopted at an event she headlined in Oklahoma.
Lambert, who is the founder of the MuttNation Foundation, an organization that helps homeless pets, teamed up with the Tishomingo Animal Shelter as part of the Dog Days of Summer event.
The singer not only showed up to the event and handed out hot dogs, snow cones and other goodies to dog fair-goers, she helped promote the adopt-a-thon via social media.
Lambert’s tweeted, “Come on people I can't take all these dogs home! Look at this match made in heaven,” and posted a photo of a child holding his new puppy.
Shelter workers even named a couple of the dogs after country singers Brette Eldredge and Blake Shelton. “Hey @blakeshelton you just got adopted! "Blake and the boys"! Lambert tweeted.
At the end of the day, when more than 40 dogs had went home to their forever homes, Lambert tweeted with a photo, “Ok. Shutting up about it now! I'm just so excited! But talk about "SHORT & SWEET."
Thanks to Miranda Lambert for putting her money towards a good cause and not only contributing to help homeless animals, but really getting personally involved in the city she calls home.
