Please do your part. Note, sign & share!

Despite the strong support, there is no internationally recognized agreement that concerns the welfare of all animals on the planet.  Many activists and animal rights groups are hoping to change this by putting the pressure on the United Nations (U.N.) to formally adopt the Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare (UDAW).

First and foremost, the UDAW will see to it that all animals are considered sentient beings—capable of thinking and knowing the pains of suffering.  Once this is established, the stage would be set for future legislation which could do wonders on behalf of animals.  Governments would be encouraged to improve already existing animal rights and welfare legislation, businesses will have to take into account their policies on animals and animal-driven work; and perhaps most importantly, peoples’ attitudes and relationships towards the animals will change as common ground is established between all species.

On the other end, humans, too, will benefit largely from a UDAW agreement, including: protecting the resources that countless people around the world depend upon: providing a more sustainable base for the world’s food supply, and granting greater sway for additional progressive moves in the future.

What it really comes down to us proving to the world that animals matter.  Already well over 2 million people—as well as animal rights groups like the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), the Humane Society of the United States (HSU, and the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)—have signed on to support the Universal Declaration of Animal Welfare; but as we take on this new year we need to continue our efforts and show the world that this is an issue the world needs to get behind
