The treatment of animals is a reflection of how we treat ourselves and each other. There’s a lack of awareness in Lebanon on how to treat animals and endangered species and there’s an imminent need for a National animal protection and welfare legislation.
This is where Animals Lebanon have been doing an incredible job over the past two years and have finally managed to prepare and present a draft animal welfare and protection law to the Minister of Agriculture and all parliamentarians on November 24th. [Link]
In order for that law to become a reality, Animals Lebanon needs to secure 25,000 signatures and meet individually with Parliamentarians, while cooperating with the Ministry of Agriculture to see the draft proceed as quickly as possible.
There are 6317 signature so far, so I ask you all to spread the message and sign the online petition [Here].
