Trisha Yearwood is celebrating the one-year anniversary of Dottie’s Yard, her non-profit fund dedicated to shelter dogs and cats, this week.

The country singer named her fund after one rescue dog in particular: Dottie, who spent 14 years with Trisha and her husband, fellow country star Garth Brooks, before her death. To honor Dottie’s memory, Trisha started the fund to support shelter pets and spearhead rescue efforts across the country.

On Wednesday, Trisha hopped on TalkShopLive to celebrate Dottie’s Yard’s anniversary and raise money for the cause with new sweatshirts from her Trisha Yearwood Pet Collection.

“Dottie was the ultimate rescue who showed up and changed everybody’s lives on our farm,” Trisha reflects. As a tribute to her, the singer’s organization is raising money to be dispersed across 27 shelters nationwide, in partnership with the Empty the Shelters adoption event campaign.
