    biggest-ever global animal welfare initiative linking the entire
    animal welfare movement under one strategic goal--global
    recognition that animals are sentient beings, capable of feeling pain
    and suffering. As such, WSPA is seeking 10 million signatures to let
    governments of the world know that we are serious about achieving a
    Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare at the United Nations.

    The Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare maintains that:

    1. The welfare of animals shall be a common objective for all nations;

    2. The standards of animal welfare attained by each nation shall be
    promoted, recognized and observed by improved measures, nationally and

    religious and cultural traditions;

    3. All appropriate steps shall be taken by nations to prevent cruelty
    to animals and to reduce their suffering;

    4. Appropriate standards on the welfare of animals be further
    developed and elaborated such as, but not limited to, those governing
    the use and management of farm animals, companion animals, animals in
    scientific research, draught animals, wildlife animals and animals in
