Country star Miranda Lambert helps more than 70 dogs after Harvey

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.

She announced on Instagram that her organization had managed to help get several dogs out of harm's way.

"Update! Thanks to some amazing transportation volunteers...We sent over 70 pups to our shelter in Oklahoma today. Our rigs are now rolling into Houston for another load. Continue to send prayers and donations," she said in a post.
