Multi-platinum-selling recording artist Miranda Lambert recently helped dogs in their golden years by taking part in a makeover of a sanctuary for senior canines who have been saved from facing their fate on the streets or in high-kill shelters.
The winner of a fundraising MuttNation contest and members of Rescue Rebuild joined with the “We Should Be Friends” singer to spruce up Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary in Mount Juliet, Tennessee.
Cameras captured the country crooner, the shelter makeover contest winner and her guest working on a bench for the sanctuary’s serene GrandPaws Garden:
Far from the first time that the star who took “The House That Built Me” to the top of the charts used a hammer, nail gun and a paintbrush to hammer home the need to help homeless companion animals, Miranda Lambert’s Muttnation previously partnered with Greater Good‘s Rescue Rebuild volunteer program to transform an old building into the MuttNation Station adoption center in her hometown of Lindale, Texas. Working again with Greater Good and Pedigree brand, in 2014 the performer also rolled up her sleeves to help achieve the collective goal of sprucing up the shelter in Tishomingo, Oklahoma.
