Miranda Lambert Rescues Mama Dog & Newborn Puppies From Houston

Born in Texas, Miranda Lambert feels a strong sense of loyalty to her home state. She also has a strong love for animals, a love that led to the creation of her rescue organization MuttNation Foundation. 

When Hurricane Harvey struck Southeastern Texas, pets were lost, abandoned, or stranded in shelters. With the flood waters continuing to conquer cities such as Houston, thousands of pets have been in need of rescuing.

Lambert wasted no time in dispatching her MuttNation team to Houston to help other organizations’ rescue efforts. MuttNation announced on Monday (August 28) that it was making its way to Houston to help provide relief to the shelters in the area. 

The group conducted its first set of rescues on Tuesday (August 29), helping a total of 72 dogs. Lambert personally took in a mama dog and her litter of puppies, which were born the day prior. 

My roommates tonight sure are cute!” Lambert wrote on Instagram along with a photo of the mama dog and her puppies. Lambert revealed that she named the mama dog “Ashley” after her best friend and Pistol Annies bandmate Ashley Monroe, who gave birth to a baby boy on July 28.

Lambert and the MuttNation team got back to work early on Wednesday (August 30). After a successful first day of rescues, everyone remains focused on helping “as many animals as possible.” 

If you’d like to contribute to MuttNation’s rescue efforts in Houston, you can do so by visiting the organization’s official website here. Also, if you’d like to donate physical items such as blankets, toys, and treats, MuttNation included a list of requested items in the above Instagram post. 

We’re sending continued prayers to all affected by Hurricane Harvey.
