Paul recently lent his support to the WSPA's Animals Matter Campaign, calling for governments of the world to support a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare and acknowledge that animals can suffer and feel pain.

Governments should act on their responsibilities and protect these beautiful creatures."[
