Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation is thrilled to announce the’ Mutts Across America: 50 States/50 Shelters’ initiative. A total of $253,660 was donated to shelters in each of the 50 states, with the minimum donation to an individual shelter being $3000.

“We are thrilled to be able to reach out to every state and recognize shelters and organizations working at a grassroots level to help animals,” Lambert said. “It’s those people on the ground, day in and day out, who really make a huge difference.”

The MuttNation Foundation board along with partners at the RACE (Ran’s Animal Care Express) team worked diligently to find the most deserving shelters in each of the 50 states. Operating under the premise that fans, friends, colleagues and benefactors across the US have sown into MuttNation Foundation in the past year, they launched a plan to select a shelter in each of the 50 states to lend a financial hand.

A complete list of the shelters that received donations is available at www.muttnationfoundation.com.

Miranda’s love of animals led to the formation of MuttNation. The foundation has successfully raised money across the country in order to aid organizations, government institutions or entities that build animal shelters for better care, increased pet adoption and encouragement of responsible pet guardianship, rehabilitation of sick or unsocialized animals, spay/neuter programs, reduce/eliminate euthanasia of healthy animals, and train shelter dogs for purposes of therapy programs, assistance for wounded military personnel, and dogs-in-prisons programs. The mission of the organization is to end animal suffering and homelessness on every front.
