Rescue Rebuild Teams up with Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation

The two organizations are raising funds to complete renovations to an older building donated by the City of Lindale with the goal of increasing pet adoptions in the area. The new facility will include a new meet & greet area for potential adopters to meet pets, two dog parks, as well as updated amenities throughout the building. In addition, the City of Lindale will also donate two acres of land as well as ongoing maintenance of the dog parks. The Tyler Junior College’s Vet Tech Program will continue all operational and maintenance tasks. Once completed, the new adoption center will be able to host up to 100 pets at adoption events.

Lambert started the MuttNation Foundation with her mother, Bev, in 2009 to shine the spotlight on the needs of shelters and rescues. In 2014, MuttNation and GreaterGood.org teamed up through the Rescue Rebuild program to improve shelters. This latest partnership with Rescue Rebuild will allow them to expand their impact on the lives of shelter pets yet again. In celebration of their 10th anniversaries as non-profits, both organizations are giving back to those in need.

“MuttNation has grown from a dream of ours into an organization that assists thousands of rescue facilities and pets,” said Lambert. “This collaboration serves as an exciting way to give back to the town where my passion for rescue pets all began.”

“As a leader in supporting the animal rescue community, partnering with MuttNation and The City of Lindale was a natural fit for our organization, as well as everyone involved,” said Bryna Donnelly, Director of Rescue Rebuild. “Thanks to our network of generous donors, volunteers and MuttNation, we will be able to make real change happen for rescues throughout the region.”

Construction on the adoption center and dog parks is set to begin this Fall. Volunteers are being asked to help with construction and donations are still needed to fund the project. For those interested, visit RescueRebuildRocks.com.
