Miranda Lambert is uniting her two favorite pastimes – singing and animals – into one special event.

On June 22, Lambert will host her fifth annual Cause for Paws benefit concert at Ford Park in Beaumont, Texas. The concert benefits MuttNation, Lambert’s own foundation that helps raise money to build animal shelters, supports pet adoption, rehabilitates sick animals, funds spay/neuter programs, reduces/eliminates euthanasia of healthy animals and many other issues regarding animals.

Originally the show was supposed to go down in Tyler, Texas, but because the event has been well received in the past, Lambert decided it was best to move it for the crowd and her mother, Bev, who runs the charity and organizes the concert.

“It got really big and out of control last year,” Lambert said. “It takes my mom all year long to work on this show, and I would rather her be reaching out to shelters and doing more important things.”

Lambert’s show truly does a lot of good. The Humane Society of East Texas became a no-kill shelter thanks to the country singer.

“We’re trying to spread the love this year and go nationwide, helping more shelters and reaching out. I just want to grow as big as we can,” Lambert said.

Lambert will do anything to rescue animals. Most recently, she took in another stray dog named Loretta. Before that, she rescued another pup and even a cat. It seems she just can’t get away from saving animals.

    What a hypocrit! Miranda says she loves animals, but has no remorse about killing them with a bow and arrow.
