If saving puppies were an Olympic sport, Miranda Lambert would no doubt win Gold.
The country megastar has long done her part to find forever homes for countless shelter and stray dogs across the country – and she’s not alone.
Gus Kenworthy, silver-medal winning Olympic skier, has become famous for his passion for puppies.
The 22 year old works to raise awareness of pet adoption in the U.S. and recently threw out the first pitch at a San Diego Padres game in support of Petco’s annual “Dog Days of Summer.”
Meanwhile, Miranda, who recently renovated her hometown animal shelter in Tishomingo, Okla. with help from Pedigree, tells Cody “when I’m not doing music I’m usually doing anything that has to do with saving dogs.”
Gus first garnered attention for his own good doggie deeds when he brought “a gang of stray puppies” home to the U.S. this past February during the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
