Gearing up for its 4th annual show, this year’s Cause for the Paws is shaping up to be the biggest ever. In addition to recent Grammy winner and ACM nominee, Miranda Lambert, the show features Red Dirt musician, Stoney LaRue, Top 40 country artist, Josh Kelley, as well as additional local favorites. Together with a huge stage, and giant video screens, this show has the makings of a spectacular concert, the likes of which, Downtown Tyler has yet to see.

Over the years the concert has raised thousands to benefit the Humane Society of East Texas, enabling it to become a no-kill animal shelter.  One of Miranda’s own dogs, Delilah, is a product of the HSOET making this event especially dear to Miranda and her MuttNation Foundation.  This year’s live and silent auctions include a variety of artist signed items.

Miranda’s love of animals led to the formation of MuttNation.  The foundation has successfully raised money across the country aiding organizations and governmental institutions or entities 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 for purposes of therapy programs, assistance for wounded military personnel and dogs-in-prisons programs.

This year’s Cause for the Paws is sure to be the biggest and best yet.  Tickets are $65 for PIT standing room only, $65 for the Gold Reserved Section, and $25 for general admission.  Tickets go on sale Friday, February 25th and are available at  Donations can also be made at
