Dolly Parton plans to adopt a dog found by workers following the Glastonbury music festival if the owner does not come forward.

The country music legend performed some of her best known songs at the festival to a crowd of 150,000.

Following the five-day event at Worthy Farm in Somerset, England, workers found a white lurcher wandering the site during clean-up. The pooch was taken to a nearby animal shelter.

The 68-year-old singer heard about the abandoned dog and immediately wanted to help.

”I had my manager Danny Nozell call the Happy Landings Animal Shelter to make sure the dog is being treated and cared for properly,” Parton said.

”At this time, nobody has claimed the dog and the dog is in great hands at the shelter. I will take the dog home to America if nobody claims her within a reasonable amount of time.”

”I was sad that someone left the little dog behind,” she added. “How could that be? In the meantime everybody is on top of it and have promised they’ll take care of that little dog. I feel honored and flattered that they have called her Dolly.”

It’s great to hear something positive coming from the Glastonbury music festival after the stunt Metallica pulled.
