Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation Kicks Off Love Harder Campaign
Miranda Lambert‘s non-profit MuttNation Foundation is kicking off its “Love Harder” campaign to help shine a light on dogs that are harder to get adopted, including pit mixes, senior dogs, black dogs and dogs with disabilities.
“The truth is these dogs are the easiest to love, maybe because they need us the most,” Lambert says. “But with so many misperceptions, people sometimes shy away from adopting them. I want to people to see the strong bonds and the special love that can be shared with these harder to get adopted dogs. So, I’m asking anyone who has adopted or is fostering a senior dog, a dog with disabilities, a pit mix or a wonderful big black dog, to send us their pictures and stories and help pave the way for others who may be considering giving one of these great pets a second chance and a forever home.”
Lambert visited Emmylou Harris and her senior dog with special needs, Jeter in a ‘video visit’ to promote the campaign. More ‘video visits’ will follow each month, and a radio and television PSA campaign will launch later in the year.
Fans can upload a photo along with a brief message about why they adopted their “easy to love, harder to get adopted dog” and what makes her or him so special – and fans will have a chance to win a one-of-a-kind Epiphone guitar signed by Miranda.
