Miranda Lambert Gets Very Emotional Talking About Saving Homeless Dogs

You’ll tear up, too.

1. Miranda Lambert has six dogs. In this video made with Pedigree, she talks about the animal shelter she supports at home in Tishomingo, Okla. (population 3,100).

2. “I feel like [dogs] love you for you, you know? That’s why I have six,” Lambert says in the spot, which follows volunteers from Pedigree and Lambert’s non-profit MuttNation Foundation.


Together, the crew spruced up the Tishomingo Animal Shelter, to which Pedigree donates food.

3. Lambert raised $70,000 to help build Tishomingo’s shelter in 2009, a year after she purchased a farm in the town.

In 2012, she and husband Blake Shelton urged the shelter’s managers to change a policy which permitted putting down dogs after just three days in residence. In 2014, Lambert’s MuttNation donated $253,660 to animal shelters in each of the 50 states.

4. “I’ve already cried like four times. It’s all about the dogs in those enclosures that need a home.”
