Dunkin' Brands Cruelty

Is Dunkin' profiting off of empty promises to its customers?

The secret is out: Dunkin’ continues to profit from animal cruelty. Dunkin', formerly Dunkin' Donuts, made a commitment to stop caging hens, but they aren’t taking that commitment seriously. If they were, they would be further along in transitioning their menu away from these archaic practices. Hens in Dunkin’s supply chain are forced to live in filthy cages with no room to move or even spread their wings. It doesn’t have to be this way. Major companies and fast food restaurants worldwide are ditching cages, and consumer demand for cage-free eggs is growing. It’s time for Dunkin’ to stop profiting from needless animal cruelty and keep their promise to make their menu 100% cage-free.

Why Cage-Free?

Confinement

Egg-laying hens are forcefully shoved inside wire cages, and on average, each hen is only afforded as little as 67 square inches of cage space — less than a single sheet of letter-sized paper on which to live her entire life. This intense confinement is the main source for frustration, injuries, and in many cases death.

Injuries

Foot and claw damage are more frequent in cages than in other systems, with lesions, fissures, and twisted or broken claws resulting from stepping on sharp wiring every day. Often, other body parts are caught in the caging, which results in fractured or broken bones, deformities, and further feather wear.

Mental Anguish

Like any animal, chickens are highly motivated to perform natural behaviors. These behaviors include nesting, perching, scratching, foraging, and exploring. Caged chickens are denied all of these natural behaviors, causing them severe distress and frustration.

Progress on the Issue

Many leading food companies are reporting on their progress toward being 100% cage-free, including these:
