Miranda Lambert continues to be dog’s best friend!

Her MuttNation Foundation distributed over $200,000 to animal shelters in each of the 50 states in January.


“I feel so passionately about helping all animals and I’m thrilled that we have once again been able to give to phenomenal shelters all across the country,” Lambert said in a statement. “The people at these shelters do such amazing work day in and day out and are truly heroes for the animals.”


Lambert, 31, co-founded the non-profit organization in 2009 with her mom Bev, and to date it has raised over $1.5 million in support of animals. The money goes to spay and neuter efforts, medical treatments, adoptions, legislative changes and education.


“The unconditional love you get from a dog is better than anything else,” Lambert told PEOPLE Country in 2012. “I can give the biggest show of my life, and my dogs don’t give a damn. They’re just happy to see their mom. Everyone should have a dog – the love they give back is like nothing else.”
