Together, we can change
the fate of animals
kept on farms

Who are we?

Open Cages believes in a future free from animal suffering. We were established in the UK in 2018 as part of Anima International, a new coalition of European animal protection organisations focusing on creating change for farmed animals.

Our mission

We seek to help animals by exposing animal cruelty, influencing retail standards and pushing for legal progress. We believe that these activities create systemic social change that will ultimately lead to animal freedom.

How do we work?

We document factory farming, mobilise the public, and convince decision makers to make change.

We publish evidence from factory farms

We must expose animal cruelty. Our first duty is to educate the public on what happens to animals behind closed doors.

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 push for change at the systemic level

We want the issue of animal protection to be taken seriously by decision makers.

We run information stalls

We like to be where people are – you can find us at universities, festivals and on the streets.
