Take the Cage-Free Pledge

Empowered By

World Animal Protection exists to tackle animal cruelty across the globe. We work directly with animals and with the people and organisations that can ensure animals are treated with respect and compassion.

About the Pledge

Today, more than 3 hundred million hens are suffering, squeezed into cages so small they can't stretch their wings or even turn around. It doesn't have to be this way. As consumers, we have the power to say no to caged egg production.  

Change is possible—it starts with a simple choice. Join World Animal Protection in our fight to stop the cruel and inhumane treatment of egg-laying hens. As our numbers grow, more retailers, restaurants, and institutions will take notice.

Pledge to help end this cycle of cruelty by:

  • Only buying eggs that are produced without the use of cages.
  • Encouraging restaurants to use cage-free eggs and eating at restaurants that do.
  • Talking to family and friends about the issue of caged egg production and spreading the word about how they can help.
