WSPA: World Society for the Protection of Animals

It's our 100th post!!!!
I can't believe it's been 100 already!
It may look long, but please read on!
It'll be worth it!

To mark my 100th post, I thought it would be only too fitting to bring the attention of anyone visiting to the WSPA - the World Society for the Protection of Animals. Little did I know until I visited their site recently, that the 4th - 10th October '07 was World Animal Week. I missed it, but I didn't miss signing in support of the Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare (UDAW) and I would love it if everyone could do the same! This is a really important declaration that would help to protect the rights of animals worldwide.

Here's the WSPA blurb: It's a time when we can join forces and make that extra effort to help animals everywhere. By working together we really can reduce animal suffering worldwide and bring the end of animal cruelty that little bit closer. We can do this best of all by supporting the Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare. (UDAW)

The UDAW is an agreement among people and nations to recognize that animals are sentient and can suffer, to respect their welfare needs and to end animal cruelty - for good.

Do you agree?

If you do, click on the banner below to go to the site to sign the online petition, or just get more information!

If you're interested in getting more information about the WSPA, click on the banner below.

This is a great opportunity for us to span the globe to do something for our animals! It's not just pets that this declaration is aimed at but also farm animals, ocean animals and more! It would be great if everyone could head over there and sign the petition! It's a really, really, really worthwhile cause!

It would also be GREAT if you could put a button or banner on your site to help raise awareness of the declaration and of the WSPA in general. It's an amazing society!

So, this is my 100th post! Yay!

I hope it's been meaningful!

I would like to say a HUGE thank you to
Maggy and Zoey over at Zoolatry

for making the two amazing banners
and tags for this post! They're perfect!

P.S. If you missed the Animal's Asia post yesterday,
