Last week, Nashville, Tennessee was hit with terrifying, deadly tornadoes. It was devastating for all who live there and love the city. People were killed and many are hurt. Animals were also affected. Country stars were deeply concerned for the people of their cultural hub, and Miranda Lambert is concerned about not just people, but the animals. She’s been working on helping animals displaced by the tornadoes.

Lambert visited Metro Animal Care and Control in Nashville over the weekend to visit the animals and see what she can do to help. She shared the following video encouraging people to Donate.

She encouraged people to Donate money or supplies and volunteer at their local shelters. According to iHeartRadio, “She promised to match all monetary donations made to her MuttNation Foundation up to $37,500 with the goal of raising a total of $75,000,” and “In less than 24 hours, $11,000 was raised for shelters. As of Monday (March 9), $29,000 has been raised towards the $37,500 goal.”

Lambert also reminded those who cannot find their pets, that it’s likely they will be found at their local shelter, especially when the sounds and winds calm down and animals come out of hiding.

It’s amazing to see a celebrity use their platform to help those who cannot speak for themselves.
