Animal-loving singer Miranda Lambert helped a host of fans find their new best friends as she hosted a dog adoption drive in her Oklahoma hometown on Sunday (08Sep13).

The Heart Like Mine hitmaker encouraged locals to visit the Tishomingo Animal Shelter for the special event, where she introduced prospective pet owners to the rescue animals at the centre.

Lambert gave away free hot dogs, drinks and snow cones, and posted photos of all the pooches who went home with new families.

Taking to her page at the end of the day, Lambert wrote, "Final count... over 40 shelter dogs from Tishomingo found a forever home today! That's somethin' to smile about!"

Her proud husband, fellow country music star Blake Shelton, also tweeted, "I hear the dog rescue drive is going great at Tishomingo animal shelter!!! High five mirandalambert!!! I love you..."
