Take the Mutt Match Quiz – Find Your Furever Love and Win Tickets to The Bandwagon Tour!

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country Music icon and animal advocate Miranda Lambert has a lot of love to share on behalf of her pet-loving fans who have volunteered, fostered or adopted rescue pets. She’s donating $20,000 to 20 shelters that will each receive $1,000 on behalf of the caring people who gave their time and their hearts to these animals over this past year. 

Lambert, who began volunteering at animal shelters as a teenager, and who has five rescue dogs, several cats, rabbits and horses said, “Shelter pets – especially the ones that are hardest to get adopted – and the people who care for them, have always had my heart. Valentine’s Day gives me one more chance to show just how special they all are to me.”  

Are You Ready To Love Harder? If you’re game, take the Mutt Match quiz – it’s a playful questionnaire for people who want to step up for the harder-to-get-adopted dogs – large dogs, special needs dogs, pit mixes and senior dogs – and help match them with what may be their best Valentine ever. There’s also a chance to win tickets to The Bandwagon Tour featuring Lambert and Little Big Town! You can take the Mutt Match quiz here: 

MuttNation congratulates the twenty grant recipient shelters and all of the dedicated people who volunteered, fostered and adopted shelter pets – who made it happen.
