Most people view Valentine’s Day as a celebration of love between significant others, but Miranda Lambert has redefined it. She’s honoring the special day by doing something for shelter animals.

In 2009, Miranda Lambert founded the MuttNation Foundation to find happy and safe homes for rescue animals. The organization also assists shelters where it can.

Last December, on the first (Giving Tuesday), the country musician announced that her organization had expanded its Share the Love program. The initiative is a grant program.

People can receive funds for adopting pets, fostering pets, or volunteering at animal shelters in 2020. Those who applied nominated their local animal shelters to receive money from the MuttNation Foundation.

Fifteen $1000 grants were made available to the public for the Share the Love Program. Lambert’s organization recently announced the names of the winners ahead of Valentine’s Day.

In a statement, the award-winning country musician explained why she made a grant possible ahead of the special holiday. She explained how she ended up choosing the day, stating:

"Shelter pets and the people who care for them have the biggest hearts and sharing the love for Valentine's Day feels so right.”

This year, more than 14,000 people took part in the program running for three years. In 2019 only two-thousand people participated, while the year before that, only five-hundred were interested.

The names of the animal shelters that will be getting the financial boost can be found here. Lambert is a well-known animal lover who personally owns many different pets that stay at her home.

In December 2019, the star started her foundation with her mother, Bev Lambert, who owned twenty-one animals! The songstress has some dogs, rabbits, cats, horses, mini-horses, and so much more.

Lambert made the initial announcement about her February grant on her Instagram account last December.

She started her work by volunteering at the Humane Society in Texas. Then she adopted a little dog, Delilah, who became her companion and went everywhere with her for the first seven years of her career.

The sad thing about adopting pets is that they eventually die. In September 2020, the star lost a golden retriever named Waylon and mourned the loss via her social media accounts.

Lambert made the initial announcement about her February grant on her Instagram account last December. She posted her update alongside a photo of her cuddling one of her rescue dogs.
