MuttNation Names RRR to Mutts Across America 2021 List!
Rescue, Rehome, Repeat of South Louisiana ("RRR") is proud to announce that it has been selected as one of this year’s MuttNation "Mutts Across America," presented by MuttNation Foundation and Tractor Supply Company. MuttNation selects 50 Mutts Across America annually, one in each state to receive a donation in the amount of $5000.
Adoption Rate, Volunteerism, & Community Presence are just a few of the criteria that Miranda Lambert & the MuttNation Foundation used when choosing Rescue Rehome Repeat as one of their 50 “carefully-vetted animal shelters” in their 2021 Mutts Across America grant program. Bev Lambert, Miranda’s mom and The MuttNation founder stated that they “feel we have now developed a criterion list through which we hand pick the “best of the best” shelters.”
Mutts Across America came as a total surprise to RRR and the other 2021 recipients, as this isn’t a grant that anyone can apply to for consideration. Instead MuttNation’s board makes their decision and then waits until the awards are received before making the announcement.
When RRR President, Terri Dunlap, opened the letter that included a grant for $5,000 from MuttNation’s Mutts Across America, she said that she was “Unbelievably shocked. We never expected this. We love what we do and were super honored.”
When speaking about Mutts Across America recipients Miranda Lambert said that “"We know that these funds will help shelters continue to provide a great environment for their pets, employees, volunteers and the communities at-large that they serve." Miranda has always had a love for animals and even found her pup Delilah while volunteering at a local shelter. This passion led Miranda and Bev Lambert to create the MuttNation Foundation in 2009 to help find safe and happy homes for as many dogs as possible.
RRR Officers, Committee and Board Members, wonderful volunteers, and supporters, want to give a huge thank you to Miranda Lambert and The MuttNation Foundation.
