Singer  Ke$ha  donated 1,000 pounds of petfood to the Nashville Metro Animal Shelter in Tennessee, USA, after seeing the effects of the flooding on the region, according to an  article .

The pop star - a Nashville native and owner of five rescued dogs - wanted to help her hometown after hearing the shelter was overwhelmed with homeless pets, so she headed to a local store, bought the petfood and dropped it off at the shelter.

"Sometimes animals get left behind when people are going through tragedy," Ke$ha said.

She also confirmed that she'll perform in an upcoming benefit concert for the city.
