One of the stars of 'Twilight' shows his concern for our four-legged friends by supporting World Animal Week.
Kellan Lutz, who plays Emmett Cullen in the 2008 film 'Twilight' and in the soon-to-be-released 'New Moon,' has joined Brooke Shields, Kristin Davis, Christina Applegate and Joanna Krupa in signing the "Animals Matter to Me" petition for a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare.
The purpose of the document, which urges the United Nations to adopt an international agreement on the welfare of animals, is to raise awareness about animal welfare issues during World Animal Week from October 4 to October 10, 2009.
"Support from the entertainment industry is vital in helping to bring attention to animal issues on a global scale. We are thrilled that these stars aligned themselves with WSPA to ask for a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare. Whether providing comfort and companionship in our homes or supplying crucial labor to support families in need, animals matter to each one of us. Our celebrity supporters understand this important connection between animals and people," says Cecily West, executive director of WSPA USA.
The public can join these celebrities by signing the "Animals Matter to Me" petition online at www.animalsmatterusa.org.
