Stop animal abuse

He was a 3 month old kitten that two teenage girls set on fire for fun, in early 2007. Since then he's made a full recovery, and now has a happy, loving home.

He was one of the Lucky ones.

Every year billions of other animals that would normally make wonderful pets are killed, maimed, tortured, tested on, and/or kept in unthinkable living conditions. In addition to that, an estimated eighty percent of the world's population of cats and dogs are staving, neglected, diseased, or are seen as pests.

If you go deeper still the black market of trading exotic animal parts has a multi-billion dollar annual income. And that's just the tip of the iceberg; do I have your attention yet?
A Universal Declaration of Animal Welfare has been created, in hopes to present it to the UN in the near future. Before this can happen a world wide petition needs over 10 million signatures! I know, it's a HUGE number, an intimidating number, but its far from an impossible number.
When I first saw the petition I thought the same thing you're thinking now; "Wow, that's soo many signatures, this petition will probably never make it." The I realized I was right, the petition would never get anywhere if I kept thinking that way. Think about it, there are almost 7,000,000,000 (6,617,726,009, to be exact) people on the planet. Basically we need .14% of the world's population. That's nothing. About 13,000 signatures for a SINGLE animal were collected in less than a month, surely we can get to 10 million for all of Earth's animals in a reasonable amount of time.
If you've ever been around an animal, you know just as well as they do that they are capable of pain, and emotions, just as much as we are. Animals may not be as smart as we are, but they are defiantly not stupid enough to not be terrified of something horrible, or realize that their death is soon at hand.
Please, if you've ever had a pet, seen an animal abused, or even heard a store about mistreatment, please, sign this petition for that animal's sake. Animals don't need to suffer for our benefit, and a devastating toll does not need to be taken on the Earth because of our selfishness. If we come together, we can make a difference. We can change the world for the better!
