“'Puppy Love' was my very first record, and six decades later, my love for pets is stronger than ever,” Parton said about what inspired her to create the doggie duds.

Part of the proceeds from Doggy Parton sales will support the Willa B. Farms Animal Rescue, a Tennessee-based non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of homeless, neglected, abused, and abandoned animals.

Parton started the Dollywood Foundation shortly after opening the Dollywood theme park in 1988. The foundation’s initial mission was to provide scholarships for local high school students, but it gradually grew into the Imagination Library, a program that offers free, high-quality books to children from birth to age five. Parton started the Imagination Library in her home state of Tennessee, and it has expanded to locations across the globe, including Canada, the U.K., Australia, and Ireland.

“I’ve always believed that if you are in a position to help, you should help, and I truly hope that I can be an inspiration for others to lift up those around them,” Parton said in a statement for the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy honor. “Whether through my Imagination Library or giving to COVID-19 research, I try to support things that have a special meaning for me. I hope everyone can find something they’re passionate about supporting and do what they can to help make this world a better place.”
