Grammy award-winner Miranda Lambert knows what it takes to record a number-one album – she’s had four of them. And as a mom to six adopted dogs, she also knows what it takes to help the nation’s more than four million shelter dogs find their loving homes – access to consistent, professional nutrition so they look and feel their best. That’s why the country superstar is teaming up with the PEDIGREE® Brand to launch a search for the next communities to benefit from The PEDIGREE® Feeding Project: an initiative started in Nashville and Chicago that supplies participating shelters with 100 percent of their core dog food needs, at absolutely no cost.

“I’m amazed every day by the unconditional love I receive from all of my adopted dogs. That’s why it means so much to me to partner with PEDIGREE®, a brand that truly believes in finding dogs loving homes as much as I do,” remarked Miranda Lambert . “PEDIGREE® knows that there are so many communities that have an abundance of homeless dogs, and together we want to help. That’s why we’re asking people to nominate their community at Facebook.com/PEDIGREE and spread the word about this incredible program. Every nomination helps raise awareness for dog adoption.” 

Lambert will officially opened The PEDIGREE® Feeding Project “Choose the Next Community” nomination period at The Americana at Brand in Los Angeles, Calif. She will unveil her latest video project that showcases her love of dogs and why this initiative is important to shelter dogs from coast-to-coast. 

Dog lovers can visit Facebook.com/Pedigree to nominate the community where they think The PEDIGREE® Feeding Project can make the most difference in the lives of shelter dogs. Visit Facebook.com/PEDIGREE and click on the “Choose the Next Community” tab.

In March, Miranda and the PEDIGREE® Brand will announce the names of the five communities that have been selected as finalists in the search. America will then vote to determine the next communities to participate in The PEDIGREE® Feeding Project. The winning communities will be announced mid-2013.
