Miranda Lambert's pet adoption efforts are legendary, and now the singer is taking her love of homeless pets to television for a new holiday special. 

Miranda along with LeAnn Rimes, Scarlett Johansson, Josh Duhamel, Kristen Bell, Fergie, Paula Abdul, Betty White and Kesha will take part in The Great American Dog-A-Thon on Fox this Thanksgiving. The two-hour special will feature rescue dog stories, viral videos of people rescuing dogs, and musical tributes. The special will also honor those who spend their lives trying to find homes for homeless dogs.

As an added pet adoption push, the stars taking part will show off dogs that are currently available for adoption and give instructions on how fans can give the animals new homes. 

The Great American Dog-A-Thon will air Thanksgiving night, Thursday, November 27, on Fox from 8-10 p.m. ET/PT.
