When Miranda Lambert found out that her home state of Texas had been hit by a deadly hurricane, she took swift action to help out the only way she knew how.
At the request of the Humane Society of the United States, the caring country star, who loves animals, employed her MuttNation Foundation to gather and evacuate adoptable pets from overcrowded shelters in Houston and its surrounding areas in order to make room for animals affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Of course, Miranda didn’t choose to stay behind. Instead, she got right to work alongside workers from her charitable foundation that, according to “Entertainment Tonight,” helped transport more than 230 shelter pets to other facilities across the country during their three-day mission.
Thank you to everyone for the support and prayers. We are so thankful to have been invited to help our furry friends in this time of sorrow. We will continue to do whatever we can to help. Continued prayers for Texas. 🙏💗#texasstrong. All of this footage was shot by myself and our team on our iPhones. Thank you @bfluke for putting this together for us. #HeartWork
A video posted to Miranda’s Instagram page shows just how tireless the start and her MuttNation crew were in their efforts to make space available for displaced animals waiting to be reconnected with their families following the hurricane and its resulting flooding.
“Thank you to everyone for the support and prayers. We are so thankful to have been invited to help our furry friends in this time of sorrow,” Miranda wrote on Instagram on Sept. 1, at the conclusion of her mission. “We will continue to do whatever we can to help. Continued prayers for Texas. 🙏.”
She then completed her message with a fitting hashtag: #HeartWork.
