“Over You” singer Miranda Lambert isn’t stopping her charity work just because she is divorced from ex-husband Blake Shelton. The country star, who started the MuttNation Foundation, is slated to appear at the “Cause for the Paws -- Back to Basics” event in Luckenbach, Texas, on Sept. 18 and 19, People magazine wrote Monday.
Lambert, 31, is a dog lover who has six pups. "They just love you unconditionally and know that you saved them and gave them a better life," she told People magazine in the past.
Lambert’s mother, Bev, who is a co-founder of the charity, said she is excited about the event. "A lot goes into an event like this," she told People magazine, adding, "But nothing makes Miranda and I more happy and fulfilled than seeing a rescue dog in the arms of a loving family. That's what MuttNation is all about."
Tickets can be bought through the foundation’s website here. The charity has raised more than $2 million dollars for animals in need since it began in 2007. MuttNation has a five-acre "safe haven" for animals in crisis and has saved animals from “kill” shelters as well as aided with emergency puppy mill rescues.
Other stars who are scheduled to attend the event are country stars like Gwen Sebastian, who appeared on the NBC reality show “The Voice,” Jessi Alexander, Jon Randall and Radney Foster.
Lambert and Shelton announced their divorce shortly after the Fourth of July in a joint statement. They said a failed marriage is not what they had “envisioned” as a couple after three years together. Since then, they have battled dozens of cheating rumors.
Lambert is accused of cheating with singer Chris Young, and Shelton is accused of cheating with singer Cady Groves. Neither star has addressed the so-called scandals.
