Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation is serving the Tennessee community after parts of the state were ravaged by deadly tornadoes in March, and given little time to recover with the ongoing global pandemic.
“We knew people needed to come first, but MuttNation is here because we have to watch over the animals, too,” Lambert said.
The country singer garnered close to 1,000 donors whose tornado relief funds were matched by Tractor Supply Co., Generous (a Nashville-based start-up that facilitates online donations) and MuttNation, thereby raising the financial assistance available to help pets and animals in need.
All proceeds received by MuttNation were allocated to the following shelters and organizations that were either damaged or assisted during and after the tornadoes: 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.
Since the pandemic hit, Lambert has continued to vocally express her gratitude for all healthcare and frontline workers, calling them “my heroes.”
In addition, she has taken to social media to encourage her fans and followers to consider adopting homeless pets in this time and thank those who have so far.

All these updates I’m reading and hearing about shelters being empty is making my heart so happy! I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who adopted or fostered a four legged quarantine buddy! They truly are the best friends you could ever have! JD is very happy about it too.
