's lifelong devotion to her four-legged friends led the country superstar to start the MuttNation Foundation
in 2009, with the goal to end pet suffering and homelessness in the U.S. and abroad. Because the singer-songwriter/activist is one of the most in-demand country entertainers working today, she's often approached to become involved in other fund- and awareness-raising efforts, and has to pick and choose carefully which causes she'll support. But it's a pretty safe bet the recipients of her goodwill will have furry paws and cold noses.
Miranda's lastest involvement is with the Pedigree Feeding Project
, and their "Choose the Next Community" initiative, which, thanks to Miranda's fans, will result in animal shelters receiving a supply of dog food at no cost, allowing them to spend the money they save on other worthwhile programs to help the pet population.
