Miley Cyrus Gets a Pig From PETA: 12 Stars With Weird Pets (GALLERY)
Animal-rights nonprofit PETA is celebrating Miley Cyrus’ 20th birthday by — what else? — sponsoring a pig in the singer-actress’ honor. The organization announced they are sponsoring a porker named Nora at the Kindred Spirits Sanctuary in Ocala, Fla.
“PETA knew that sponsoring a rescued pig was the perfect birthday present for a young woman who spends so much time encouraging others to help animals,” Vice President Tracy Reiman explained to E! News. “From promoting animal adoption to speaking up for cows who suffer on dairy farms, Miley never stops letting her millions of fans know what they can do to make the world a kinder place.”
As she rung in her birthday on Friday, Cyrus applauded her fans for donating to her favorite animal charities in lieu of presents. “Thank you to all my fans who donated to starkey hearing spot rescue dogs for my birthday,” the star tweeted. “Y’all topped it again best bday (sic) present by far!”
And Cyrus — who is engaged to Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth — was just as grateful to PETA for its gift. PETA gifted Miley Cyrus a pig named Nora for the singer-actress’ 20th birthday. “@peta oh my pigggggyyyyy!” Cyrus tweeted with a snap of Nora. “She is so cute I can hardly stand ittttttt!!!!”
Apart from the adorable oinker, Cyrus celebrate her birthday with her usual sass. “Great night last night,” she tweeted, posting a photo of her standing on an ottoman and screaming. “Thanks to everyone who celebrated with me. & yes I did get a big booty hoe 4 my birfday.”
