Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Helps Raise More Than $75,000 for Animal Shelters Affected by March Tornadoes

Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation helped raise more than $75,000 to assist animal shelters and organizations that were affected by the tornadoes that swept across Middle Tennessee on March 3. The devastating twisters killed 25 people and cause more than $1 billion in damage.

“We knew people needed to come first, but MuttNation is here because we have to watch over the animals, too,” says Miranda. “My heart is filled with both sadness for everyone who suffered—and with gratitude for everyone who has stepped up.

Almost 1,000 donations were matched by Tractor Supply Co., Nashville-based donation platform Generous, and MuttNation to raise more than $75,000 that has been allocated to the following organizations: Agape Animal Rescue, Crossroads Campus, Friends of MACC, Nashville Humane Association, the Pet Community Center, Putnam County Humane, the Putnam TN Disaster Animal Relief Team (DART) and the Wilson County DART.

With 15 rescue animals between them—including dogs, cats and rabbits—it’s no secret Miranda 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.
