Hi tachi,A Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare (UDAW) would be a powerful catalyst for change - inspiring the creation of national animal-protection laws in countries where they do not exist and encouraging all countries to improve their animal welfare legislation.Here are just a few things that this multi-national declaration would do:
More than 60,000 Canadians are campaigning for a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare at the United Nations. And government representatives from Kenya, India, Costa Rica, United Kingdom, Australia and others have already indicated support for a UDAW.tachi, send a letter to the Minister for Foreign Affairs and urge him to support the achievement of a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare at the UN >>Thank you for taking a few minutes to make a difference today.
