Miranda Lambert currently owns eight dogs, has fostered 38

Miranda Lambert and her ex, Blake Shelton, are not known for being animal friendly. They hunted for sport, not just for meat. (No shade on people who hunt for meat. I eat meat so I can’t complain.) Anyway Miranda is a dog mom and she loves and cherishes her pets. She started a charity in 2009 called Muttnation and she personally currently has eight dogs. That’s crazy. She also loves to foster dogs and says she’s fostered 38 of them. That’s amazing. She probably only likes to foster dogs that already have owners though.

You’re a lifetime member of the NRA and have had a handgun license since your early 20s. What’s your relationship with guns now?
My dad was a police officer, so early on I was taught gun safety, what guns were for, how to use them and when not to touch them. I’ve just grown up around them, so it’s my normal. I’m a girl, I travel a lot by myself, and I like to carry to protect myself. I know everybody has an opinion on it and it’s polarizing, but for me it’s just a way of life.

Nearly 10 years ago you founded an animal-rescue charity. Why are dogs so special to you?
It’s where my heart is. It started with volunteering at the Humane Society in Texas; I adopted a little dog who was my companion. Her name is Delilah. For the first seven years of my career, she went everywhere with me; she was therapy. When I lived in Oklahoma, it was a very rural area and I fostered about 38 dogs myself. Now I have eight. I think that’s pretty good.

For years I have wanted a dog. I rent my house and my landlord would probably let me have one even though she’s not too keen on the idea. Someone tried to unsuccessfully break into my house the other day. (I have dummy cameras that blink red and I think they spotted them and took off.) I just ordered one of those cheap security systems that advertise on podcasts and I went to the SPCA this week looking for a dog. There was a huge doofy pitbull that was friendly and full of energy. I want to smoosh his giant face and love on him but I don’t think I could care for him long term. I might be able to foster a dog though. There are no organizations right in my town but there are some nearby. This is a nice reminder that I could foster a dog.

As for her relationship with guns, I think she should denounce the NRA and that it’s a cop out to say “everybody has an opinion on it,” but I don’t have a problem with people who are responsible and educated gun owners. It did not occur to me to get a gun after the near break in this week and I would rather have a dog than a gun any day.

    Good for her for fostering.

  2. InquisitiveNewt says:

    “It’s where my heart is.” So she has one, does she? That will be news to the beautiful Stacey and all the other wives littered in her wake… Yes, @kny, good on her for fostering: shame she doesn’t apply the same compassion to human beings.

  3. LaraK says:

    She’s always been a great dog supporter. She has held adoption events across the country for years with her foundation, posts photos on instagram, etc.

    As for he rest, both she and Blake are likely trump supporters, or at least they would not say otherwise since many of their fans are. That’s true of most country musicians. So the nra thing is kind of a moot point.

  4. OriginalLala says:

    Her Mutt Nation does good work! but yes, she isn’t an animal lover, she is a dog lover. You don’t eat what you love.

  5. Birdix says:

    It’s hard getting over a break-in (or attempt). Someone kicked a hole in my front door—in the middle of a weekday! I fixed the door but it took me a while to feel ok again. Getting a dog has really helped.

  6. Lisa says:

    It’s wonderful that she fosters dogs! Dogs can’t help themselves, they depend on us humans to take care of them and treat them right.
    Mahatma Ghandi said that a nation is known for how it treats its animals.

    Someone’s trying to rehab her image.

      Exactly what I thought!!
      “I foster dogs!! I’m really a good person and not just a homewrecker!!”

    • vesper says:

      Totally!! Girl sit down you are no saint!

    • Tigerlily says:

      So glad I’m not the only one who thought same thing when I saw the post. I am a cynic but geez…..I hate it when celebs (or politicians) assume we are just that stupid ……but I guess some people are. Ohhhh…..puppies! She loves puppies so she cannot possibly be a bad person…..insert eye roll.

  8. Patricia says:

    How old is she? Referring to herself as “a girl”, woman grow up. You don’t need a gun because you are “a girl”. I’m sure you have security. Just sounds so dumb and immature.

  9. HelloSunshine says:

    Too bad she can’t have the same respect and care for other human beings, especially the wives left behind in those marriages she’s so insistent on breaking up.

  10. Kate says:

    I’m always shocked at the judgment that comes from commenters on Miranda Lambert articles. Yes, she has a reputation for getting involved with married men. That certainly doesn’t make her the best person in the world – but where is all the hate for the married men who she is involved with? After all, they’re the ones who made vows to their wives, and who ignored those vows to have an affair. Miranda may be a country music star, but it’s not like she’s a witch who can cast love spells over these guys and make them act against their will. They chose to step out on their wives. In my mind, this makes them far worse than Miranda, who is not married, and not in a relationship. She doesn’t owe anything to Stacey Felker, Stacey’s husband is the one who made a commitment. I’m not saying what Miranda is doing is right, but I also don’t know why she receives so much hate either. People are complicated, marriages don’t always work, and having an affair hardly makes someone evil. Sheesh.

    • InquisitiveNewt says:

      @Kate if it had happened the once, people might be more compassionate. Once is a mistake. There can be penitence, repentance. But this has happened more than once. It has happened so many times that an unhealthy and toxic pattern has been established. And the fact that she has threatened to fire Felker if he contacts Stacey, and called his wife numerous times in a single day (as reported by CB) makes her even more suspect. If there were a hint of contrition, compassion, empathy, apology I suspect people would be less judgmental. But there has been none of these. No self-examination or -censure. No common decency. Just the overwhelming Arrogance of a narcissist.

    • Ange says:

      Are you forgetting she stepped out on her husband and many other boyfriends besides? She’s ALSO that spouse.

  11. Caitrin says:

    Well, nine dogs, if you count Evan Felker.

    Dogs are the Best Thing on earth.

    I am the obnoxiously proud mamma of two of the world’s cutest chihuahuas 🐶 Joey and Bird are my children (no human kids for me, thanks…I am a future teacher though!), the loves of my life, and I would be very heartbroken/lonely without them in my life. They are so happy all the time and give unconditional love, no matter how much of a slob/mess/bitch I can sometime be! Dogs truly are human’s best friend ❤ I would love to adopt and foster more puppies but I am only allowed two dogs in my apartment 😔 Kudos to those who do foster and adopt all kinds of animals 😊

  14. Gutterflower says:

    Hahahahahaha to the shade “she probably only likes to foster dogs who already have owners” 😂😂😂😂

  15. Agirlandherdog says:

    CB, if you’re still in VA, I can think of 4 rescues right off the top of my head you could foster with. The larger rescues usually span a great distance with their fosters. We were registered with a lab rescue, and they fostered all over VA. Some of the dogs were up to 6 hours away from where I live. The bigger problem I think you’d run into is that fostering a dog is often a very long term, intensive endeavor. Ideally, every dog would be adopted within weeks or months of going into a foster, but that is rarely the case. Many of these dogs have behavioral issues or trust issues and require a great deal of love and patience from their foster. Some of them will never be adopted. If that’s a route you want to go, make sure you discuss options with the rescue in the event the foster really just isn’t working out. Sometimes you might be required to keep the dog until they’re able to find another foster, which can take a while and may be super stressful for both of you. During our adoption journey, we met so many fosters, and the patience and dedication these people have to animals is just simply amazing.

    My dogs are my burglar alarm! A breeze could blow through the trees and that sets off the barking! I love it though especially when I’m home alone!

  17. Loca says:

    Miranda and Christina wouldn’t look as old as they do in their 30’s if they would just stop drinking. Cute dogs though.

  18. Kat says:

    Ugh, tired of the “it’s the married person who bears the responsibility for breaking up the marriage” argument. Yes, he’s a pig, but no one just accidentally fell into Miranda’s genitals. She pursued him knowing he was married. His wife is entitled to lay some of the blame at the feet of his mistress, if she wants. She’s entitled to be bitter at this pathetic homewrecker. How you treat others is the clearest indication of your character. Through her actions, through the way she treated a woman who never harmed or offended her, Miranda has shown that she has a bad character, that she’s selfish, and she’s immoral. Acknowledging that isn’t absolving the man of anything. If anything, it’s merely noting that like attracts like (birds of a feather and all that). But I’ve said in the past that helping animals is at least somewhat redemptive, so I’ll reiterate that. Even the most vile POS like Miranda can be slightly redeemable if she helps puppies. I’m glad her treacly, derivative music and weasel voice have given her enough resources to help animals in need. Now if only she would stop shooting other animals for mere sport.
