Fame and fortune isn’t keeping superstar Carrie Underwood from being an animal advocate. Along with speaking out against animal cruelty and volunteering at an animal shelter, Underwood took the time to rescue an injured bird, reported Fox News on Thursday.

Underwood tweeted “Chased this birdie around the street yesterday to help-she had a broken wing. Thanks @WaldensPuddle for taking her!”

Her husband also helped, as Underwood tweeted “& thanks to my hubby for pulling over so I could grab her. Sorry to those who had to deal w/ a crazy lady chasing a bird in the turn lane!”

The tweet shows a photo of the bird in a cage. Thanks to Underwood, the bird is now safe, and getting plenty of food, water, and good care. Waldens Puddle, which took in the bird, is a wildlife rehabilitation and education center. According to their Facebook page, they are the only professionally staffed non-profit wildlife rehabilitation facility in Middle Tennessee.

Underwood loves all types of animals. In 2009, Underwood established the C.A.T.S. Foundation (Checotah Animal, Town, and School Foundation) to improve Checotah, Oklahoma by assisting with causes, fulfilling needs, and providing services to the community and surrounding area.

The Foundation helped fund a new animal shelter, which promotes the importance of spay and neutering, pet adoption, and general pet welfare. C.A.T.S. also offers aid for local school system projects for children.
