Miranda Lambert, alongside her mother, founded the nonprofit MuttNation Foundation in 2009. This organization provides shelters across the country with funds for services such as spay/neuter, adoption drives and medical treatments, all in an effort to keep abandoned dogs off the streets and match homeless pups with new families. Some of their many initiatives include Mutts Across America: 50 States/50 Shelters, Redemption Ranch and Cause for the Paws, an annual event that has raised over $1.5 million.
