Millions of pigs are confined inside gestation crates—cages so small they’re unable even to turn around.

The pork industry’s leadership continues to defend the indefensible: Locking animals in these tiny, cramped cages. It’s hard to imagine a more miserable existence than being immobilized day and night.

Please join us in calling on the pork industry to get animals out of these iron maidens. Let the National Pork Board know that you say “NO” to gestation crates for pigs.

Letter to
National Pork Board
It's cruel and inhumane for pork producers to immobilize pigs -- who are social, intelligent, and active animals -- in cramped gestation crates day and night for virtually their entire lives.

Please stop supporting this animal cruelty and say no to cruel crates for pigs.
