Back a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare

The problem

  • Animal cruelty and suffering is a global issue
  • Animals are sentient – they feel pain
  • Animals need to be protected – urgently.

The solution

  • A Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare would show a global commitment to making the protection of animals a priority.
  • It would inspire international, regional and national change
  • It would drive industries that use animals, to protect animals.

What we’re doing

  • We’re leading a global movement calling for a Declaration
  • Two million people have already added their voice
  • 330 animal groups and 46 governments are on board too.

Help make the Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare a reality

Animals matter to me. They need to matter to us all.

Better animal welfare globally is vital if animals, people, and our planet are to thrive. For this reason, I support an international initiative to improve animals’ lives: I support a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare.

A declaration backed by the United Nations is necessary to create a new international landscape – one in which respect for animal wellbeing is recognised as inextricable from how we live and treat our planet.

A Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare would protect animals in an incredible range of ways 

It would encourage governments to create or improve animal welfare laws. It would persuade businesses to protect animals. It would mobilise animal welfare supporters worldwide. And it would get people talking and thinking about animal welfare. A Universal Declaration would change the lives of millions of animals – forever, so please add your voice today.
