HOUSTON (WCMH) — Country superstar Miranda Lambert is on the front lines of the animal rescue efforts in Texas after Hurricane Harvey.

Volunteers from Lambert’s nonprofit MuttNation Foundation are working to transport pets from Houston-area shelters.

MuttNation volunteers say they transported 62 animals from the Houston Humane Society and 72 animals from Harris County. The animals are being transported to other shelters so there is more room for all the displaced animals from Hurricane Harvey.

Lambert started MuttNation in 2009 with her mother Bev, according to the foundation’s Facebook page.
