As you may recall, last week we reported several celebs have taken on a Twitter challenge to benefit animals. Among these stars is Miley Cyrus, and she is going above and beyond to ensure the critters receive all the help they need.

The “Twitter for the Critters Celebrity Challenge” has five teams and anyone can donate. The Onyx and Breezy Foundation is putting on the challenge not only to benefit animals, but to also support organizations, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting critters.

Rather than just saying “vote for me” and “help me win,” Cyrus has chosen to tweet her respect and love for animals as part of the contest.

In addition to posting adorable pictures of pups, Cyrus has been tweeting up a storm to save all animals, even if she is competing against her dad Billy Ray Cyrus. “@billyraycyrus I know we’re blood dad but this competition goes deeper than that!!! Team Miley is gonna save the animals! ;),” she tweeted.

If you think the starlet isn’t taking the challenge seriously, then you’re wrong. Cyrus is standing up to those who aren’t genuine. “Just got told a lot of people saying they’re donating aren’t telling the truth :( we need to save the animals & lying is hurting them…,” she said on her Twitter page. “It makes me sad! All I want is 2 save the animals! Lying is hurting them more! I’d rather small amounts of $ than big lies!”

For the 19-year-old, yes she wants to win, but it’s all about the animals and not the Benjamins. Cyrus is up against some stiff competition including Kelly Osbourne, Eric Stonestreet and Peter Facinelli, so if you’re on Cyrus’ side vote before Feb. 18, when the challenge ends.
