Miranda Lambert's MuttNation & Tractor Supply Co. Partner to Donate Over $250,000 to Animal Shelters
Miranda Lambert's MuttNation Foundation and Tractor Supply Company have teamed up to donate more than $250,000 to animal shelters across the United States. Through MuttNation's Mutts Across America program, the organizations issued a surprise $5,000 donation to one shelter or foster-based rescue in each state plus Washington DC, as well as a "Wildcard" pick.

Since the initiative's inception, MuttNation's Mutts Across America has supported more than 400 shelters with over $1.5 million in grants. Tractor Supply first partnered with MuttNation for the initiative in 2021.

"Our Tractor Supply team loves animals, and Miranda and Bev's passion and enthusiasm for shelter pets is an inspiration," said Seth Estep, Tractor Supply's EVP and Chief Merchandising Officer. "The Mutts Across America grants can have a tremendous impact on the facilities that support these abandoned and neglected animals. We are honored to partner with MuttNation in this initiative to help these shelters perform this difficult but important work."
