If you love animals, then I hope that you read this and act! WSPA is urging peoples, from all corners of the world, to help them achieve global recognition that animals matter, that they can feel pain, and can suffer, and that we have a responsibility to end animal cruelty around the world. They seek 10 million signatures, to let the governments of the world know we are serious about achieving a Universal Declaration at the United Nations. Please log on to www.wspa.org.nz/animalsmatter and sign the petition, and join with me in proclaiming animals do feel pain, and they do matter!!
