Shelter Waives Adoption Fees Thanks to Generous Donation from Miranda Lambert

Country music superstar Miranda Lambert loves dogs. So much so that she created a charity to support shelter animals. This year, the singer’s foundation made an extremely generous donation to help shelters across the entire United States. One facility used the funds to waive adoption fees.

A Bountiful Gift

In 2019, Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation launched an ambitious campaign as part of its Mutts Across America initiative. The aim of the campaign is to help animals in every U.S. state. They awarded $150,000 in grants to 50 shelters in all 50 states.

Since 2015, Mutts Across America has donated more than $750,000 in grants to more than 250 shelters. MuttNation says each organization is “carefully vetted” by the foundation. They choose shelters “for the outstanding care they provide and their heart for animals.”

Miranda founded this charitable organization in 2009. It  “aims to promote and facilitate the adoption of shelter pets, encourage spay and neuter for all pets, and educate the public about the importance and beneficial impact of these actions.”

Boy, did they achieve this goal with their latest campaign! Just listen to what one shelter did with their funds.

Skip the Adoption Feeds

The Scituate Animal Shelter of Massachusetts (SAS) used some of the grant to help more people adopt animals. Thanks to MuttNation’s generosity, SAS said its adoption fees are “set to be” waived until July 19.

They posted this on Facebook:

“There’s a reason dogs like country music. Thank you Miranda Lambert for your generous donation that allows SAS to waive adoption fees for a limited time. Lower fees = more dogs finding homes. We love you, Miranda!”

Typically summer months are slower for SAS. Right now they have a full shelter. They hope the zero fees will encourage people to visit their facilities and adopt a new animal.

We love this creative thinking. It definitely supports MuttNation’s mission to find dogs forever homes.
