Miranda Lambert is taking care of her four-legged friends ahead of Christmas!
The country superstar and animal lover recently visited Tractor Supply in Franklin, Tennessee to go on a shopping spree for shelter pets.
Teaming up with Tractor Supply, the exclusive retailer for Lambert‘s MuttNation pet line and pet foods, the Texas native shopped until she dropped as she made her way through to store to purchase thousands of dollars of food, toys and supplies for local shelters.

Lambert then made surprise stops at Williamson County Animal Center, Metro Nashville Animal Care & Control and Nashville Humane Association to deliver the goods.
“This time of year, it’s so important to remember shelter animals everywhere. These three shelters have been important local partners to MuttNation over the past several years, and we all know how tough it’s been for them,” Lambert shared. “I just wanted show my appreciation.”
Tractor Supply Company later surprised Miranda and MuttNation by spreading the joy nationwide, giving $1,000 gift cards to 10 shelters and rescues that help senior pets and/or pets with special needs.
TSC’s Nicole Logan, Vice President of Divisional Merchandise Management, said, “MuttNation’s Love Harder campaign to raise awareness for dogs that are less frequently adopted has been an inspiration to all of us at Tractor Supply. We share Miranda’s affection for all shelter animals and wanted to support her efforts during this special time of year.”
