Lambert shared a tweet Tuesday from her MuttNation Foundation that said the organization was going to the Houston area to support area shelters.

ABC News reported that members of the organization traveled to Houston on Monday.

So far, more than 70 dogs have been transported to Oklahoma from Houston, Lambert said. Another transport is also planned. 

By Tuesday afternoon, the organization picked up 62 more pets from Houston Humane Society.

KOCO reported that MuttNation plans to take around 300 pets to Tulsa, Oklahoma, according to a Tuesday Instagram post by the foundation.

“It was important to our AMAZING founder, @mirandalambert that we do our part for her home state,” MuttNation said on Instagram Monday. “We will help transport any animals currently in shelters so that there is room for displaced animals from Hurricane Harvey! Plus any other support we can offer!!!”

MuttNation said those who want to help with those efforts can donate on its website.
