Animals Matter: Idol’s Simon Cowell Backs Campaign to Stop Cruelty

The Softer Side of Simon Cowell

I was thrilled last night to see Simon Cowell in a TV interview about how he's now actively recruiting people to the "Animals Matter to Me" campaign of the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA). According to Cowell: "There are currently no international laws to protect animals and The World Society for the Protection of Animals is working to change that. They are calling on governments across the world to embrace a common agreement called the Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare. This would recognize that animals can suffer and feel pain and need proper protection." 

Cruelty happens behind closed doors or in remote places.  The issues surrounding the annual massacre of thousands of dolphins was brought to light in "The Cove,'' winner of Best Documentary at the Oscars last week.

Get Involved + Signatures Wanted

One of WSPA's initiatives is to educate people about the damage done to wildlife by illegal trafficking. They don't seem to be asking for money with this campaign, just signatures. Get involved today and visit their site at today and let's all do our part to help end the senseless, heart-wrenching cruelty brought upon innocent animals throughout the world.
