“This post contains affiliate links, and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.”

As part of a larger initiative to educate dog owners on proper nutrition, effective training, and other ways to raise a happy and healthy dog, the Dogington Post is reviewing toys, foods, treats, rescue organizations, and dog-loving celebrities in our first annual Dogington Post Awards Program!

Each week, we’ll present the nominees in a particular category. And, YOU, our readers, will have an opportunity to weigh-in on your favorites, to help us choose a winner!

Nominees from each category for the Dogington Post Award have been selected based on strict criteria including dedication to animal welfare, educating the public on responsible pet ownership, and nationwide initiatives to end the homelessness of animals.

This week, we’re presenting the nominees for Best Dog-Loving Celebrity in 2012!

Dogington Post’s Best Dog Loving Celebrity nominees are:

1. Miranda Lambert

The Country Music Association’s (CMA) Female Performer of the Year, Miranda Lambert, is using her amazing voice for more than just belting out number one hits. She’s using her voice to speak for dogs!

The country star and her hubby, fellow country crooner Blake Shelton, share their Oklahoma home with 6 rescue dogs lucky enough to wander onto their property and into their lives. But, Lambert’s dedication to dog rescue certainly doesn’t end there! Through the non-profit organization, MuttNation Foundation, that she started in 2009, Miranda Lambert is directly involved in building animal shelters, increasing pet adoption and rescue, encouraging responsible pet ownership, rehabilitating sick or unsocialized animals, funding spay and neuter programs, reducing euthanasia of adoptable dogs, and training dogs for therapy and dogs-in-prison programs.

Miranda says of her love for dogs, “They don’t care that I’m Miranda Lambert, they just care that I’m Mom.” She understands the value of the unconditional love that dogs provide and says it helps keep her grounded, despite fame and fortune.

2. Ellen DeGeneres

Each week on her television show and website, the hilarious talk show host and animal advocate, Ellen DeGeneres, showcases adoptable pets, interviews other dog-loving celebrities, and shares funny videos of goofy pets – all in the name of bringing awareness to dog and cat rescue, shedding light on dog homelessness, and encouraging fans to open their homes and hearts to dogs.

Helping homeless pets find their forever homes is a cause close to Ellen DeGeneres’ heart. “Pet adoption is something I’m extremely passionate about. I believe that by working together, we can find good homes for the millions of homeless and abandoned pets out there,” she has said.

Co-owner of Halo Pet Foods and the Halo Pet Foundation, DeGeneres strives to provide pets with happier, healthier, longer lives by providing the best quality dog and cat foods available. Now partnered with FreeKibble.com, Ellen and Halo provide healthy foods to shelter dogs around the nation, ultimately making them healthier, happier, and more adoptable!

3. Miley Cyrus

In 2012 alone, the 20-year old singer/actress adopted 5 homeless dogs. With a fan-base in the millions, Miley Cyrus has brought astounding attention to animal rescue and adoption of shelter dogs.

Through her impressive fan following, Cyrus has donated tens of thousands of dollars to animal rescue. For her 20th birthday, the singer asked over 10-million friends and fans to donate to her favorite rescue organization, Saving SPOT! Dog Rescue in lieu of birthday gifts.

Through sheer volume of devoted fans and a voice that reaches millions, Miley Cyrus and her own love of dogs has impacted the lives of countless others. Simply by giving homeless dogs a voice and encouraging rescue, Miley has made a difference.

    My vote is for Ellen, my Chihuahua was on several different brands of dry & wet dog food that his hair was falling out, scratching with no fleas, so I switched to Halo and OMG what a difference this Halo product has done for him. He has grown back all his hair that was lost, full of energy, and it is the perfect size to feed him. I will never stop using this product and if I do get another dog that too will be on Halo.. Love, Love, Love this product and the result prove just that.. Thank you for making such a wonderful dog food without all those chemicals, soy?? which should never be given to a dog or cat.. God Bless

    says:

    My vote is for Miley. All three of these lades are great and have huge hearts. But I would love to see Dick Van Patten among the nominees. 100% of the proceeds from one of his products supports the building of the National Service Dog Monument. It’s to be dedicated at Lackland Air Force Base in October, 2013. Dick’s Rose Bowl Parade Float was a moving and stunning tribute to the military, military service dogs and their handlers and families. The sacrifices and bravery of military service dogs that put their lives on the line protecting the freedom of our country seldom receive national recognition. Thanks for this opportunity to give kudos to Dick!

    And Miranda, Ellen and Miley – keep doing wonderful things for animals too!

    they’re all great animal lovers. how do you chose 1.. if i had to chose one, i would go with ellen. not because i don’t think the others love the animals as much, but because just in length of time, ellen has been steadily helping out for years. i know the others are younger and hopefully will keep the same passion for the causes that they have now. but ellen has shown consistancy. it’s not a passing thing. so… ellen.. thanks.
