Panama Signed The Universal Declaration On Animal Welfare

Animals & PetsPanama adopted the Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare, grouping together member countries of the United Nations to prevent and eradicate animal mistreatment.

Panama is the third country in Central America to sign this agreement, which is an initiative of the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), after Nicaragua signed it on 2011 and Costa Rica on 2012.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Fernando Nuñez Fábrega, sent an official letter to the WSPA stating the commitment of the Panamanian government with this cause, and said “this represents progress towards a fairer society for human beings, the environment and animals.”

The manager of programs for Mesoamerica and the Caribbean of the WSPA, Marcela Varga, celebrated Panama’s decision and said “with this support, Panamanian authorities prove to the world that the country is committed to caring for animals.” (Estrella)

Panama Signed The Universal Declaration On Animal Welfare

One of the things that caused me to move to Colombia was the difference in the way Panamanians and Colombians treated their animals. Maybe 1 % of the dogs I see here in Colombia are malnourished and filthy, while that seemed to be the state of affairs in Panama. This, to me, was a loud and clear signal as to the different mindset s of the two people.
