Sign the Petition for a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare through the World Society for the Protection of Animals! 84K signatures so far!

Every day millions of animals are born into lives of unspeakable suffering. Every day millions more suffer terrible deaths. All animals should be able to live their lives free from misery.

But they struggle in a world that is often indifferent:

* The illegal and often inhumane trade in wildlife and wildlife parts is a soaring black market worth $10 billion a year.
* An estimated eighty percent of the world’s cats and dogs are unwanted and suffer from hunger, disease, neglect and persecution as pests.
* Animal cruelty is shockingly prevalent around the world, even in countries like the U.S. with strong legal penalties.

The road toward better animal welfare is through cooperation, information and a strong international commitment. Urge the United Nations to adopt a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare! The declaration would have a real, long-term impact on the welfare of billions of animals worldwide.

Note: your signature will be one more toward the goal of 10 million signatures on the "Animals Matter to Me" petition, making it the most ambitious global initiative on animal welfare that has ever been attempted!
