Miranda Lambert’s ‘It Takes Balls’ MuttNation Campaign Awards More Than $175,000 in Grants

Academy of Country Music Triple Crown winner Miranda Lambert‘s MuttNation Foundation has awarded 48 Tennessee organizations more than $175,000 in grants as part of the foundation’s It Takes Balls campaign.

The It Takes Balls campaign launched earlier this year to raise awareness around the importance of spaying and neutering pets, with a special focus on rural areas. MuttNation is aiding spay and neuter clinics and shelters that offer low-cost surgeries, as well as supporting Spay Tennessee, which helps mobilize spay and neuter programs throughout the state.

Among the organizations that the funds will help are Bent Whisker Ranch (Davidson County, Tennessee), A Time For Paws (Cumberland), CASA Clinic (Maury), Critter Fixers (Robertson), People for Animals (Lewis), Wags and Whiskers Pet Rescue (Putnam) and Beesley Animal Foundation (Rutherford).

“We’ve been so excited by the great response we received to our new spay and neuter program and know that the organizations we’re supporting with It Takes Balls grants will make a meaningful difference in helping curb pet homelessness across Tennessee,” Lambert said in a statement.

The country star and her mother, Bev, launched MuttNation in 2009. Since then, the 501c(3) nonprofit has raised more than $8 million to support its mission of promoting the adoption of shelter pets, and advancing animal spay and neuter efforts. MuttNation also provides financial support and works with transport partners to assist and relocate animals during times of natural disaster.

Lambert also launched a line of pet toys and supplies, MuttNation Fueled by Miranda Lambert, that are sold at Tractor Supply Company stores to benefit the foundation.
