Animal lover and singer Miranda Lambert is helping animals in need with a new campaign. Her Love Harder campaign with her non-profit MuttNation is focused on bringing attention to dogs most in need of adopting, including senior dogs, black dogs, and pitbull mixes.
“The truth is these dogs are the easiest to love, maybe because they need us the most,” says Lambert. “But with so many misperceptions, people sometimes shy away from adopting them. I want to people to see the strong bonds and the special love that can be shared with these harder to get adopted dogs.

“I’m asking anyone who has adopted or is fostering a senior dog, a dog with disabilities, a pit mix or a wonderful big black dog, to send us their pictures and stories,” says Lambert, “and help pave the way for others who may be considering giving one of these great pets a second chance and a forever home.”
Lambert has been open about the need to adopt animals and discusses her pets regularly on social media. The country singer shared that her dog Waylon had passed away after 13 years together. “Today I lost one of my best friends. My old pal Waylon,” she shared in the post.
