Miranda – who set up MuttNation, a non-profit organization that promotes the adoption of shelter dogs and spaying and neutering, in 2009 with her mom Bev – used the video to plead with her fans to "keep an open mind" if looking for a pet dog.

"I encourage you to keep an open mind if you're looking for a new pup," she wrote across the top of the clip. "These dogs have a harder time finding homes: pit mixes, senior dogs, big black dogs, dogs with disabilities."

"I always tell people who want to help that volunteering, fostering, and adopting are so important to every shelter," she previously said.

"Even if you’re not in a position to adopt, maybe you have time to foster or volunteer – it all makes such a big difference."

Miranda and her husband Brendan McLoughlin have five rescue dogs in their home: Thelma, Louise, Delta Dawn, Cher, and Bellamy; and two cats Tequila and Macaroni.
