Miranda Lambert Just Raised a Ton of Money for Animals Affected by Tennessee Tornadoes

  • Miranda Lambert and her mother, Bev Lambert, founded MuttNation in 2009 to help animal shelters and rescue organizations around the country.

  • The foundation, along with Tractor Supply Co., helped raise more than $80,000 to assist animals affected by the tornadoes that swept through Tennessee earlier this spring.

Miranda Lambert is making headlines yet again. Only this time it’s not for her voice or even the newest addition to her family. Instead, it’s for charity.

On Tuesday, May 12, it was announced that Miranda’s MuttNation—a charitable foundation dedicated to ending animal cruelty, neglect, and homelessness—raised more than $80,000 for animal shelters and rescue organizations affected by the tornadoes that caused more than $1 billion in damage as they swept through Tennessee in March 2020.



“We knew people needed to come first, but MuttNation is here because we have to watch over the animals, too,” Miranda said in a statement to Nash Country Daily. “My heart is filled with both sadness for everyone who suffered—and with gratitude for everyone who has stepped up.

In addition to the funds raised directly by MuttNation, Tractor Supply Co. stepped up to match nearly 1,000 donations. All of the funds raised are being donated to local Tennessee organizations and shelters, including Agape Animal Rescue, Crossroads Campus, Friends of MACC, Nashville Humane Association, the Pet Community Center, Putnam County Humane, the Putnam TN Disaster Animal Relief Team (DART), and the Wilson County DART.

This isn’t the first time MuttNation and Tractor Supply Co. have teamed up, though. In August 2019, the pair announced a partnership to host in-store events to celebrate animals and encourage adoption. What’s more, Miranda even created an exclusive MuttNation product line for the retail home and garden store.
