Miranda Lambert is doing so much good for animals through her MuttNation Foundation. Now comes word that through the charity's new initiative Mutts Across America: 50 States/50 Shelters, the Foundation has been able to donate a whopping $253,660 to shelters in each of the 50 states, with the minimum donation to an individual shelter being $3000.

Miranda said via her website today, "We are thrilled to be able to reach out to every state and recognize shelters and organizations working at a grassroots level to help animals.  It’s those people on the ground, day in and day out, who really make a huge difference.”

The MuttNation Foundation board along with partners at the RACE (Ran's Animal Care Express) team worked diligently to find the most deserving shelters in each of the 50 states. Criteria they used to grant funds to each shelter included things such as a high adoption rate, low euthanasia rate, high amount of volunteers, do they have an updated website to help in adoptions, do they do fundraising, do they educate the public with regards to having pets fixed, etc.
