Together, we can change
the fate of animals
kept on farms
Who we are?
Open Cages was founded in 2012. Our members are people from all over Poland, who want to change the fate of farmed animals. We strongly believe that changing the situation of animals is possible, and we take action that brings us closer to this goal.
We are advocating for a better protection of farmed animals and for the consumers’ right to be fully informed about the conditions in which these animals are kept.
Our goal is to prevent animal suffering through the introduction of systemic social change, the documentation of factory farming conditions and education that promotes positive attitudes towards animals.
How we work?
All our actions are planned and executed with the greatest efficiency in mind. It’s not enough to believe in a good cause — achieving our goals is what matters most.
We publish videos and photographs from Polish factory farms
We know that people are the most compassionate about issues from their closest environment. In every region there are factory farms that cause enormous suffering.
We keep tabs on farmers’ every move!
We conduct legal proceedings concerning animal abuse
A part of Open Cages’ activity is running an intervention group, which reacts to any reports of animal abuse on farms. Where possible, we notify the Prosecutor’s office of suspected criminal offence.
We publish reports, brochures and leaflets about factory farming
The key to making the right decisions is access to information about the conditions of factory farming, as well as to all available solutions.
We lobby for legislative change improving the situation of animal
We want the issue of animal protection to be taken seriously by the politicians.
We run information stalls
We like to be where people are — you can find us in schools, at big music festivals and in the streets.
We give advice on how to easily prepare plant-based meals
Plant-based cuisine is really tasty and healthy, and with a little practice it’s also pretty straightforward.
We convince restaurateurs to include more plant-based options
We want to make it easy for people giving up meat to eat outside of the home.
