Miranda Lambert has launched the non-profit MuttNation Fund to help musicians and others in the music industry who find it difficult to pay their pets’ medical bills due to coronavirus pandemic.
Explaining the context that prompted her to take the initiative, Lambert said, “It really hit home when my backup singer and close friend Gwen’s shelter dog, Earl, became extremely ill in early March, just as the pandemic was taking hold and our tour had to stop.”
The country star said she realized that there must be a lot more people whose careers in the music industry have been on pause due to lack of live performance opportunities and who are struggling with their pets’ vet bills.
“I knew I had to do something and thought that starting this fund would help both the music community that’s been so supportive of me, and their pets,” she said in a statement.
The MuttNation Fund is an extension of her non-profit organization MuttNation, formed in partnership with the Waggle Foundation.
MuttNation said in a press release that it plans to accept contributions from “caring people who are moved to help after reading the stories about the pet in need on the MuttNation Fund page.”
