Miley Cyrus Gets a Special Birthday Gift From PETA

Written by Michelle Kretzer | November 23, 2012

Miley Cyrus’ fans have watched her grow into a gorgeous young woman with a kind and compassionate heart, so to celebrate her 20th birthday on November 23, PETA is surprising Miley with something that she really wants.


During a recent appearance on Ellen, Miley talked about how much she loves pigs, so PETA sponsored a very special pig in her honor. Nora, whom PETA helped rescue, is a resident at Kindred Spirits Sanctuary, a picturesque farm in Ocala, Florida, that gives refuge to animals who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned, including pigs, cows, goats, sheep, chickens, turkeys, horses, and donkeys.

Miley proved her affection for pigs when she retweeted a PETA action alert to her 10 million followers asking them to urge Walmart to ban its suppliers from cruelly confining pigs to tiny metal-barred gestation crates for months at a time.

And the singer’s compassion for animals doesn’t stop there. She lavishes love on her rescued dogs and consistently encourages people always to adopt and never buy. And she’s striving to rid her diet of dairy products.

Miley’s fans are awesome animal advocates, too. They’ve set up a special fundraising page where people can donate to PETA’s lifesaving work for animals in honor of the compassionate birthday girl.

Happy birthday, Miley! We love you!

    Yeah whats the deal with the fur

  • Lily says:

    I love Miley and I think she’s completely gorgeous, but she seems to wear quite a lot of fur, and what looks like real fur. PETA, please can you tell Miley, as you did with the beautiful Eva Mendez, how fur is produced, and please, ask her to do an anti fur campaign video. She would be such an inspiration to millions of people, especially the younger generations of the future, if she spoke of her compassion and how she doesn’t wear fur (assumming of course, that upon watching videos of animals being skinned alive, clubbed, drowned, beaten and electrocuted, that she, like any decent person, would immediately shun fur and feal sickened by the industry.

    If only this can help get the word out to treat pigs with dignity. They are extremely intelligent creatures, more so than many dogs. People treat them heartlessly….so, so sad. Vegan bacon is quite good by the way….can people just give it a try??

    the thought is nice, but you should’ve sponsored the pig whether it was her birthday or not /:

    I love Miley! She’s good singer, actress, etc. It’s too bad people don’t seem to understand that she can’t be a Disney star forever, and she lost a lot of fans when she “grew up” I love her, she’s my idol! She’s beautiful! Pigs are sooo cute btw(: <3

    c’est chouette des centaines d’animaux vont avoir une vie dessente, mais juste une remarque serait il possible de savoir si sa couleur de cheveux ou son maquillage est aussi respectueux pour les animaux ? sinon, une jolie femme comme elle ne pourrait elle pas faire le pari de se montrer au naturel ou tout simplement afficher ses marques de cosmétique non tester sur les animaux qu’elle utilise ?
