Miranda Lambert kicked off CMA Fest with her first MuttNation March this month. Miranda, with more than 1000 fellow animal lovers including Nashville Mayor Megan Barry, created a sea of pink as they, along with approximately 120 dogs, marched from Nissan Stadium over the Nashville Pedestrian Bridge, and ended at Chevrolet Walk of Fame Park, where Lambert was joined onstage by Storme Warren, host of SiriusXM’s "The Highway."

The MuttNation Foundation Adoption Drive at CMA Fan Fair X featured 60 dogs, of which 30 of them walked in the march. Besides the rescue pups, the offerings included the popular “Puppy Corral” where prospective owners could play with the dogs, a photo booth and, of course, the MuttNation mobile unit. The adoption drive matched the perfect shelter pups to new families in 21 states as well as Canada. Adopt, don’t shop was in full force this week where all of the 60 apoptable dogs found their forever homes!

“I am so grateful that all these amazing dogs found their forever homes” said Lambert. “Marching with so many amazing fans and fellow animal lovers was really a highlight of CMA Fest for me.”

We are totally in love with our little poodle/bichon. He has the the best temperament of any dog I've known. Yes - adopt, don't shop!

He's adorable. My daughter is in her second year of college and is going to be a vet. She's very "adopt don't shop" and sees the abuse from breeding, puppy mills, etc. She's really opened my eyes.
