Animals Matter to Me
In support of our international partner organisation, the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), RSPCA Australia invites you to join one of the most exciting campaigns that the global animal welfare movement has been involved in to date - the campaign to achieve a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare.
Such a Declaration aims to achieve global recognition of animals as ‘sentient beings' and animal welfare as an issue of importance to the United Nations.
The launch of the ‘Animals Matter To Me' petition in support of this campaign is just the start of an exciting and potentially historic journey for everyone interested in animal welfare, everywhere.
The recognition of the sentience of animals at a global level would not only be a catalyst for the development of animal welfare legislation at the national level but would also provide a much-needed benchmark for groups that work in difficult and sometimes dangerous situations where there is little recognition of the concept of animal welfare.
The Declaration initiative also has the unique potential of reaching out and protecting the lives of all animals, everywhere.
We want you to be part of the biggest ever petition to protect animals from cruelty and suffering that the world has ever seen!
