Animal groups ask A&W to go cage-free




Please sign our petition



VHS and five other animal welfare organizations have signed a joint letter urging A&W Restaurants to stop using eggs from caged hens.

The letter follows news that Tim Hortons and Burger King have committed to going 100 per cent cage-free.  In recent months, a number of major food companies have also announced they will transition to using cage-free eggs.

The joint letter, addressed to A&W CEO Paul Hollands, states: “Enriched cages severely restrict important physical activities including running, flying and wing-flapping and do not permit unrestrained perching and dustbathing.” The letter says consumers have turned against eggs from caged hens and that, “To them and to the wider public, a cage is a cage.” The letter is signed by:

The Vancouver Humane Society
Humane Society International/Canada
Mercy for Animals Canada
Animal Justice
Canadians for the Ethical Treatment of Farmed Animals
The CanadianCoalition for Farm Animals

An online petition calling on A&W to go cage-free has gathered more than 6000 signatures.
