Will you do one more amazing thing for farmed animals today?

The work to end farm animal suffering is only made possible by you. Your donations mean we can keep up the fight to secure a better future for animals, people and the planet. But we still have so much to do. If you are able to make an additional gift, we would be so grateful.

A monumental achievement for farm animals

Because of you, and others like you, the European Commission announced it will propose legislation to phase out caged farming through the EU. This is a monumental step forward in our campaign to End the Cage Age. A ban could potentially come into effect by 2027 and, every year, it could give over 300 million animals cage free lives.

"Over the years of this project there were so many moments of darkness and uncertainty, sleepless nights filled with quiet doubt. But we persevered—we recalibrated, regrouped, and we pressed ahead. Our strategy worked, and together we are bringing about incredible change for farmed animals. It’s tangible, it’s real, and you made this happen"

Sean Gifford, Global Director of Campaigns

The realities of caged farming

Without this ban, almost all adult female pigs will spend nearly half of every year inside crates, in which they cannot even turn around. Egg-laying hens will continue to have only a little more space than an A4 sheet of paper, which does not allow them to perform basic needs such as dustbathing and wing-flapping. Rabbits will be unable to stretch up or out fully, or have enough space to perform a single hop. Without this ban, cages will deny the freedom for farm animals to express simple and natural behaviours and their suffering will continue.
