Ram has announced a new partnership with award-winning country music sensation Miranda Lambert. To launch the partnership, Miranda is auctioning off a customized Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn just like the one she drives, with all proceeds going to benefit MuttNation Foundation.
The auction, open for bids until November 15, is just the beginning of a relationship between Lambert and the Ram brand.
You know how much we love dogs here at AskPatty, so that’s why we especially appreciate this campaign. Co-founded by Lambert, MuttNation Foundation is a donation-supported 501(c)(3) foundation whose purpose is to build animal shelters for better care; increase pet adoption and encourage responsible pet guardianship; rehabilitate sick or unsocialized animals; fund spay/neuter programs; reduce/eliminate euthanasia of healthy animals; and train shelter dogs.
The organization has raised over $2.2 million in the last seven years to help end animal cruelty, neglect, and homelessness. With a winning bid on any of the auction items, you can show your support for the MuttNation mission and help build shelters for better animal care, to increase pet adoption, and to promote responsible pet guardianship in addition to other worthy goals. The 1500 Laramie Longhorn currently carries more than 130 bids and is now bidding at more than $40,000. The actual Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price for the truck (not including taxes or registration, title, and transfer fees) is $51,100.
