Miley Cyrus is no stranger to saving animals. We’ve been giving her shout-outs for years for her commitment to animal adoption and for being totally rad!
Last night, Miley used her celebrity status to ask her 11 million Twitter followers to take action for animals. The organization NYCLASS is hard at work asking citizens to sign a petition in support of horses who are being enslaved by the horse-drawn carriage industry. The organization needed help gathering 100,000 signatures to support the critical New York City Council bill, Intro. 86A, which would allow working carriage horses to retire.
Miley came to the rescue, tweeting:

Fans responded big time, and the number of signatures grew by almost 5,000 in less than a day!
