Miranda Lambert, the reigning 4-time ACM and CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, headed to Thackerville, OK to headline the 6th Annual Cause for the Paws concert benefitting Miranda’s own MuttNation Foundation.  On Friday, May 31st, Miranda took the stage at the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, OK. 

MuttNation has raised more than $400,000 for its cause so far in 2013 from Cause for the Paws and various other donations – including continual fundraising efforts by individual groups of Ran Fans.  The Cause for the Paws event raised funds through a combination of ticket sales, a live auction, an eBay auction, raffle tickets, vendors donating their services and private donations. 

Popular items from the eBay auction included a Mini Replica “Blake and Miranda Wedding,” an autographed George Strait cowboy hat & two tickets to his sold out show in Texas, and autographed Luke Bryan and Taylor Swift guitars.

MuttNation Foundation has been actively helping reunite families with pets lost in last month’s devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma and finding new homes for pets in need.

Miranda’s love of animals led to the formation of MuttNation. The foundation has successfully raised money across the country in order to aid organizations and governmental institutions or entities that build animal shelters for better care, increase pet adoption and encourage responsible pet guardianship, rehabilitate sick or unsocialized animals, fund spay/neuter programs, reduce/eliminate euthanasia of healthy animals, and train shelter dogs for purposes of therapy programs, assistance for wounded military personnel, and dogs-in-prisons programs.

“I feel so blessed to be able to continue the work of MuttNation Foundation in aiding and assisting animals in need,” said Miranda “Aside from music, this is my biggest passion in life, and I find it so rewarding to help end animal suffering and homelessness.”

“This year we were so proud to bring Cause for the Paws 6 to Miranda’s adopted home state of Oklahoma,” said Bev Lambert, the Director of MuttNation.  “Our early decision proved to be a very timely one. Just before our event date the devastating tornado hit the Oklahoma City area. MuttNation Foundation went into full action. As a result, during the event we pledged all incoming funds via our Facebook page to the affected animal rescue and relief where we had two mobile shelter units, Pedigree food delivery and a mobile animal hospital deployed. The fact that we raised nearly half a million dollars is beyond belief! Miranda and I promise, without reservation, that all funds from the event as well as incoming donations, will be used in the most frugal and effective ways to insure that pets across the U.S., and specifically now in Oklahoma, are rescued, sheltered, housed and adopted in a manner that aligns with our mission: to end animal suffering and homelessness on every front!”

  1. Ive worked Since age 14 and now at age 59 am disabled with Primary Immune Deficincy and also have Epilepsy. My own sweet dog, Abby a 4 yr old black Lab started having seizures a few months ago. Living on SSD Ive exhausted my limits and capability as far as vet care and nobody in my home town seems to be able to provide any solutions other than to put her down, because of my financial state. This Dog saved my life in more ways than one and Im not ready to give up on her. If anyone k.ows of any charities or resources to help with her care, or god forbid a better home please contact me. Thank you, this is an urgent cry for help.

  2. Ok.

    Folks are trying like hell to stop animal abuse but at the same time they are not doinf much to stop women from commiting first class murder to their babys before they r born. Some world we live in. We live in a world that gives a damn about saving animals but at the same time it don’t give a damn about stopping the bloody practice of murdering babys in womb ( abortion ) Abortion is frst class murder. And then there not to forget the fact that folks like to kill babys by abortion and at the same daddgum time they are claiming that punishment ( spanking ) is abuse. I am 15 , i don’t know much. But i know that what i say is true. Spanking is not a bloody practice at all. Till i was 8 years old my punishment when i was bad would be spankings. Let me tell ya’ll that spankings hurt less than a bee stink and are not a danger to children. So overall, folks in the world would rather save dogs than stop babys from being murdered via abortion, and that folks say that killing babys is ok, and spankings can be harmfull.
