As the owner of more than a dozen dogs, a flock of chickens, horses, minihorses, cats and a couple potbellied pigs, Miranda Lambert is practically an animal expert. The “Over You” songstress launched her pet accessories collection, MuttNation Fueled by Miranda Lambert — which includes chew toys, bedding, collars, leashes and more — this week at the Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Florida.
The products all channel her country-meets-rock-n-roll feel, and the proceeds benefit MuttNation Foundation, the animal charity Lambert started with her mother, Beverly. The charity supports adoption, homeless animals, service dog placement and other efforts.
The 32-year-old animal lover teamed up with Petmate to make some of the coolest chew toys for furry friends. Besides toys that are shaped like tambourines, guitars, unicorns and armadillos, there is a Rescue Mutts collection of six toys made to depict real-life rescue pups. There is even one that resembles Lambert’s first rescue dog, a Terrier mix named Delilah!
Most of the collection is made of vintage fabrics, a choice inspired by the country singer’s personal style. The custom-fit collars — which are made with an eclectic mix of denim, leather, tassels, bows and antique hardware — sound exactly like an outfit we might see on Lambert’s upcoming Keeper of the Flame tour.
“The creation of MuttNation is a dream come true. It’s an extension of me and my mom’s love for all dogs and our goal of helping every dog find a happy, loving home,” the “House That Built Me” singer said in a statement. “There are millions of beautiful dogs looking for homes and it is our hope that in addition to raising money, we will raise awareness to the joy of adopting a shelter pet.”
