"Thank you from the bottom of my heart," Underwood sweetly shared.

Some of Carrie Underwood’s biggest fans recently joined together to honor her late dog, Ace, with a generous donation to her C.A.T.S. Foundation (Checotah Animal, Town, and School Foundation).

Followers of @CUnews4Fans, a Twitter account dedicated to sharing news about Underwood, rallied fans to raise funds for Underwood’s hometown charity and ultimately made a $4,326 donation in Ace’s memory. 

Underwood was brought to tears upon hearing the news and took to Twitter to show her gratitude. 

“You guys are honestly the best,” the “Ghost Story” singer wrote. “When I read this, I immediately started crying…I can’t believe you all pitched in like that! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. And thank you on behalf of Ace and all the little furry babies that you are helping!”

Those who donated also signed a digital card and shared messages with their condolences to Underwood.

The money raised was donated to the C.A.T.S. Foundation, which Underwood established in 2009 as a way to give back to her small Oklahoma hometown. The foundation assists with causes, fulfills needs, and provides services to the community and surrounding areas.  

“My hometown is extremely supportive of me and I feel blessed to be able to create something as a way of giving back; to say thank you,” Carrie Underwood shared on the foundation’s official website. 

Ace, the superstar’s beloved rat terrier, passed away on Sunday, April 2. Underwood revealed the news the following day and shared several photos of Ace alongside a heartbreaking message.   

“Last night my sweet Ace left this world…he will forever live on in our hearts and be forever missed,” Underwood wrote at the time. ”He was there for me when I was on my own trying to figure out life when it was at its craziest!”

She continued, ”He was with me through 3 houses, 6 tours and 2 kids…always ready to snuggle and play…through all the highs and lows,” she added. ”He was a true friend and a good boy till the very end. I love you, sweet Ace…see you on the other side.”

The late pup played an important role in various milestone moments throughout Carrie Underwood’s life, including escorting her down the aisle when she married Mike Fisher. Ace also helped the eight-time GRAMMY winner announce her first pregnancy.
