We’ve got some large outdoor festivals in the United States, but England’s Glastonbury Festival blows most of them away with attendance regularly exceeding 150,000 people. Dolly Parton played at the 2014 Glastonbury Festival, which ran June 24–28, reportedly wowing fans and festival workers alike.

The Glastonbury crews were apparently so impressed with Dolly’s performance on the Pyramid stage that, upon discovering an abandoned dog during the cleanup process, they gave it the name Dolly. The European media tagged it with the name “Doggy Parton.”

Dolly, ever-generous woman that she is, got wind of the dog and has vowed to adopt the dog if the owners can’t be located.

“I had my manager Danny Nozell call the Happy Landings Animal Shelter to make sure the dog is being treated and cared for properly,” said Dolly in a statement. “At this time, nobody has claimed the dog and the dog is in great hands at the shelter. I will take the dog home to America if nobody claims her within a reasonable amount of time.”
