ACRES "Animals Matter to Me" in celebration of World Animal Day

Category : animalwelfare

ACRES is organising "Animals Matter to Me" in celebration of World Animal Day in October.

"Animals Matter to Me"
in celebration of World Animal Day

The Atrium @ Orchard
(Beside Plaza Singapura)

5th - 7th October 2007
(Friday - Sunday)
10am - 10pm


"To mark World Animal Day, Acres will be celebrating Singaporeans' support for animal protection efforts by holding a 3-day animal-themed festival. There will be a photographic exhibition, music, dance, children's activities and a large array of educational exhibits on animal protection issues, along with the opportunity for everyone to find out how they can help make the world a better place for the animals we share it with here.

We also aim to collect 10 000 signatures for the global “Animals Matter to Me” campaign in support of the WSPA Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare to be endorsed by governments of the world. This is a call to everyone, worldwide, to recognise all animals as sentient beings, that they can feel pain and can suffer and that we have a responsibility to put an end to cruelty around the world. Please drop by and show your support, and show the world that animals matter to you!"

Leanora Lyn Gaffar,
Head of Animal Care,
Acres Wildlife Rescue Centre (AWRC),
Animal Concerns Research and Education Society (Acres)

Leanora explained further:

"ACRES is collaborating with WSPA on this event to promote the objectives of the campaign and add to their global target of 10 million signatures across the globe in support of a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare. Read more about the campaign and read the draft declaration online at the Animals Matter website.

ACRES has collected sigantures before and some may have signed online, but there are still many more who are unaware of this project and ACRES hopes to raise another 4,000 signatures in support of the eclaration which they will submit to WSPA."

That's me with Leanora Lyn Gaffar (Head Animal Care) and Louis Ng (President) of ACRES on
a visit to the developing Wildlife Rescue Centre. We share another common link
- we are all biology graduates from the National University of Singapore.
