For Miranda Lambert, home is where her dogs are.
The singer is currently mother to six adorable pups – Waylon, Bellamy, Cher, Delta Dawn, Jessi and Black Betty – but probably not for long. "I have a little plaque in my house that says: 'There is always room for one more dog,'" she tells PEOPLE.
Lambert, 30, has been rescuing strays since she was a little girl, but it was her first shelter dog, Delilah, who inspired her to found the MuttNation Foundation. "I started the foundation in 2009 along with my mom and two other board members, with the mission of raising funds to help dogs and shelters," she shares.

He was brought to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals by two good Samaritans. Radiographs revealed severe joint disease in both of his hips due to old fractures, and, as a result, he had lost almost all the muscle mass in his hind legs.
Diamonds are a dog's best friend, too.
It took six years, but Lois Matykowski's missing diamond wedding ring finally reappeared when her 10-year-old Rottweiler mix, Tucker, swallowed a popsicle stick this month, according to ABC News.
