"Hey, y'all. I came over to MAC [Metro Animal Center], and I wanted to visit and catch up with everybody, and see what was going on with shelters in the affected counties. MAC has been taking in displaced dogs, and have informed me they're going to get quite a bit of an increase of displaced dogs and strays over the next couple of weeks, after dogs come out of hiding, and the noise dies down from the storms," Lambert said in the video.

"So I just want to inform everybody to be aware that if you're missing a dog, it could be at your local shelter," she continued. "If you wanna help and donate, you can to your local shelter; this is mine, but you can go in all of the affected counties, and see if they need supplies, if they need volunteers. Donate your time or money, or both."

One day later, she posted an update about how amazed she was by the response and call for help.

"Y’all are amazing!!" Lambert wrote. "In less than 24 hours, we’ve already raised almost $11,000 for shelters helping animals impacted by the tornado in the Nashville and surrounding areas! Visit muttnation.com/tornado to donate."

To date, over $29,000 has been raised towards their goal of $37,500.

The money is being raised through Lambert's charity, MuttNation. They set up a special site where people can donate. On the site, they detailed their goal:

On Tuesday, March 3rd, devastating tornadoes ripped through Middle Tennessee. MuttNation Foundation is partnering with Tractor Supply Co. and Generous to match your donations - help us support shelters in Davidson, Putnam, Wilson and Benton counties by reaching our goal of $37,500, which will become $75,000 with the matching funds!

MuttNation is responding to the needs of animals and the shelters caring for them that were impacted by this natural disaster. We know we can make a meaningful and measurable difference with a little time and your generosity.
