During a recent interview about the animal charity she founded called Maddie’s Corner.
The charity works to help animals in a number of fab ways, including funding spays, shots and adoptions for shelter pets. You can find Maddie’s Corner in her hometowns of Tulsa, El Lay and in NYC.
She says credits her rural upbringing for her obsession for the furry and feathered. She said:
"I grew up in Oklahoma around a lot of animals, and a lot of my relatives are farmers and ranchers. I have a lot of respect for all kinds and what they can bring to our lives."
Howeves, being a city gal hasn't changed her love one bit - just her pets! The actress reveals,

That sounds fairly straightforward to us. Mileybird then went ahead to state that she thinks there are things much, much worse than a little bit of the green stuff:
"I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana -- people can be mad at me for saying that, but I don't care... I've seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I've never seen that happen with weed."
"As long as it isn't illegal, there are far more dangerous things. And it's legal in the state of California. So I'm happy to live in California, a place where you can be whoever you want to be."
Well, Miley, marijuana isn’t exactly legal in California unless you have a prescription, so we’re not entirely sure what you mean. But, okay...
As for her transition from Disney teen idol to mature pop star, she said:
