A star of the country music world is making a point of helping animals who lost their homes in Hurricane Harvey.
Adding to an already large list of stars contributing money, time or effort to recovery is Miranda Lambert who Billboard reports is working through her own organization, MuttNation, to rescue over 70 dogs.
Lambert founded the organization in 2009 in an effort to promote the adoption of pets from shelters by working with shelters and aiding in other aspects of the sheltering process such as transportation and funding.
But its efforts went from humane to humanitarian when Hurricane Harvey left disaster in its wake.
Our team is headed South! It was important to our AMAZING founder, @mirandalambert that we do our part for her home state! We are headed to Houston to give relief to municipal shelters. We will help transport any animals currently in shelters so that there is room for displaced animals from Hurricane Harvey! Plus any other support we can offer!!! You can help our efforts by donating! Link in bio! Friends, please #prayfortexas! #muttnationfoundation #ontheroadagain
