Miranda Lambert has always had a soft spot for her four-legged friends; often rescuing strays from the side of the road. On the heels of a busy week working for MuttNation’s big charity event, Cause For The Paws 5, Miranda rescued 6 puppies found homes for all of them in just a couple of days!!!
Miranda’s 5th Annual Cause for the Paws raised $236,797. The concert took place on Friday, June 22nd at Ford Park in Beaumont, TX, joined by special guests Wade Bowen and the Josh Abbott Band.
“We are so excited about the next chapter in the life of MuttNation Foundation in aiding and assisting animals in need,” said Miranda “Aside from music, this is my biggest passion in life. Every penny of profit from the benefit goes into the fund that helps us accomplish our mission to end animal suffering and homelessness.”
“I’m thrilled to say that in the past five years we have been able to contribute nearly a million dollars to abused, abandoned, neglected, or unwanted animals,” said Bev Lambert, the Director of MuttNation. “We plan on doing even more outreach in 2012. One exciting partnership that we have entered into in this past year is with the Red Star Emergency Relief Service to assist in disaster relief for animals displaced or abandoned as well as the rebuilding of shelters harmed or destroyed. At this very moment, Red Star has been dispatched to aid the animals displaced by the rapidly spreading Colorado wildfires. One of the most exciting things about our partnership with Red Star is that we are working with them to bring home our military service dogs from the recent war efforts. These military animals are currently being retrained to provide service to the wounded warriors and therapy for their families.”
