What a perfect place to once again gain attention for a well-loved Foundation. For the third consecutive year, Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation will be entertaining CMA Fest fans with Music City’s cutest canines, all available for adoption to caring, qualified families. Partnering with Nashville Humane Association, MuttNation will have adorable pets available each day from 11-3pm at the MuttNation rig located inside the Music City Center.
Bev Lambert, Miranda’s mom and co-founder of MuttNation Foundation, will be on-site to have photos taken with each adopting family. With MuttNation’s support, more than 100 shelter dogs have been rescued by country music fans at CMA Fest over the past two years.
“MuttNation’s mission is to promote the adoption of shelter pets, spay & neuter, and to let everyone know why these things are so important. Since country music fans are the most passionate people out there, CMA Fest is a great place to accomplish these goals,” said Miranda, who has 8 rescue dogs. “And it’s the world’s best feeling when you make the perfect match between a rescue and a new owner, knowing it’s creating such an incredible bond that will grow deeper and stronger every day. It just fills my heart with happiness to be part of something so special.”
When asked how you can tell when you’ve found the right dog, Miranda told the crowd of more than 1000 MuttNation “citizens” gathered during CMA Fest last year, that “your dog will come to you.” As she was speaking, Bandit walked up to Fran & Mark Anziano and, from that moment on, has been part of their family. Keep an eye on MuttNation socials to see advance pictures of some of this year’s adoptable dogs photographed with Bev and Miranda on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
Another feature at the booth will be a one-of-a-kind MuttNation branded Epiphone guitar signed by Miranda, available via online raffle through CrowdRise.
There will also be great MuttNation merchandise and the MuttNation Fueled by Miranda Lambert pet collection by Petmate, proceeds from sales of both benefit MuttNation Foundation. Petmate is also offering all CMA Fest fans a 25% discount for online purchases over $4.99. Use Code CMAFEST anytime from June 6-12.
