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.

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!
