The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) is asking for your help, ASPCA supporters. The UK-based group has launched theAnimals Matter To Me ( http://www.aspca.org/site/PageServer?pagename=animalsmatter ) campaign, which represents the biggest-ever global animal welfare initiative linking the entire animal welfare movement under one strategic global recognition that animals are sentient beings, capable of feeling pain and suffering. As such, WSPA is seeking 10 million signatures to let governments of the world know that we are serious about achieving a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare at the United Nations.
The Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare maintains that:
1. The welfare of animals shall be a common objective for all nations;
2. The standards of animal welfare attained by each nation shall be promoted, recognized and observed by improved measures, nationally and internationally, respecting social and economic considerations and religious and cultural traditions;
3. All appropriate steps shall be taken by nations to prevent cruelty to animals and to reduce their suffering;
4. Appropriate standards on the welfare of animals be further developed and elaborated such as, but not limited to, those governing the use and management of farm animals, companion animals, animals in scientific research, draught animals, wildlife animals and animals in recreation.
