Miranda Lambert issued a challenge to all her fans for the month of February.

Instead of having them give donations to her non-profit Mutt Nation she asked every fan to commit to volunteering for a day at their local animal shelter.

Plus she announced that three random lucky shelters would get a $1000 donation in honor of someone who volunteers.

“We didn’t know if one person or 100 people would rise to the challenge and were thrilled by the response of 399 rescue-loving folks who signed on. Nothing makes me happier than to see people actively participate in making a positive difference at their local level,” said Miranda.

Morning Meadow Animal Rescue (Fordyce, AR), one of the three selected shelters. The other two rescues receiving MuttNation grants are BARC Humane Society of Palestine, TX and Dogwood Animal Shelter of Osage Beach, MO.
