As the Highway Vagabond Tour got off to a great start, Miranda Lambert is rallying the support of pet lovers by calling on concertgoers to support her passion and to “Fill The Little Red Wagon” at her tour stops with food and supplies to help animals in need.
The country superstar is offering up the chance for one lucky fan and a guest to meet her before her performance. To enter, all you have to do is drop off pet food, treats or toys into the “Little Red Wagon” that is set up at the entrance of the venue on the evening of her shows. All donations benefit local shelters.
The 2017 campaign kicked off in these markets and supports the following local shelters:
Takes A Village No-Kill Shelter
Castaway Animal Rescue Effort
Kearney Area Animal Shelter
Dunkin’ Donuts Center
Providence Animal Rescue
Dakin Humane Society
Mohegan Sun Arena
Dog Star, Kenway’s Cause, Pack Leaders
“The Little Red Wagon was overflowing and then some”, says Lambert, “I want to thank my fans, the volunteers, the communities, the shelters, Petmate, Live Nation and Country Radio for their tireless efforts and for how much they care about what I love, which is the mutts.”
“The food drive from the concert was a huge help to our organization,” Says Anna Yendes from Castaway Animal Rescue Effort in Springfield, MO. “People donated more than 600 lbs of food to us, plus an assortment of treats, canned food and other supplies. Our shelter, like many others, run on very tight budgets so we are constantly low on everything and worried about running out. Food drives like these are great because it allows us to help more animals that need it. Our cats and dogs were very happy when I got back to the center with all the donations!”
A special thanks to the Pet Food Center chain in Evansville, IN for their tremendous support of shelter pets by carrying the MuttNation Fueled by Miranda Lambert Pet Collection in their stores. Every purchase helps change the lives of shelter dogs in a big way. Don’t Forget, love a shelter Pet!
