The Empty Cages Collective (ECC) is a New York-based animal and environmental advocacy organization. ECC aims to cultivate a culture where animals are recognized as fellow sentient beings worthy of respectful and compassionate treatment. Through advocacy, education, hands-on rescue and assistance, the ECC envisions a world free of animal exploitation, abuse, and ecologically destructive behavior.
Empty Cages Needs You!

As an all-volunteer organization working in one of the most expensive cities in the US, we do our best to scrimp and save so that we can save as many animals as possible. Still we need your help to pay for the veterinary bills and medical supplies needed to keep going. Your donation of any amount is appreciated and supports the work we do for NYC's animals. Help us help them!
