Hosting an adoption event for the third year

Miranda Lambert may not be scheduled to perform during Nashville’s CMA Fest on June 7–10, but her MuttNation Foundation will be front and center each day from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. inside the Music City Center.

MuttNation will team with the Nashville Humane Association to host an adoption event for the third year. Since its inception in 2016, more than 100 shelter dogs have been adopted through the drive.

“MuttNation’s mission is to promote the adoption of shelter pets, spay and neuter, and to let everyone know why these things are so important,” says Miranda. “Since country music fans are the most passionate people out there, CMA Fest is a great place to accomplish these goals. And it’s the world’s best feeling when you make the perfect match between a rescue and a new owner, knowing it’s creating such an incredible bond that will grow deeper and stronger every day. It just fills my heart with happiness to be part of something so special.”

In 2009, Miranda and her mom, Bev, started the MuttNation Foundation, an organization with the mission of ending animal suffering and homelessness on every front. The foundation has successfully raised millions of dollars to aid organizations, government institutions and entities that build animal shelters for better care and increased pet adoption.
