The Highest Quality Handmade Pet Enclosures Since 1986

Welcome to CDE Animal Cages.  We hand make all of our enclosures with the hope of being able to meet any need a pet owner may have.  Whether you are an individual looking for a Catio, a rescue group looking for a bank of enclosures, an RV owner who would like to design a custom design so that your furry friends can accompany you on your travels, or a bird, puppy, bunny, or monkey (or anything else) owner, you have come to the right spot.  You can even listen to what our customers think.

Take a look around and explore all the many ways you can invest in the future of your animal.  We are so glad you are here.

How Do I Start?

Consider the animal you are working with and the specific needs they have. Are you looking for a Walk-In for plenty of room or multiple roommates? Maybe you are interested in a Pull-Out Tray underneath a wire floor for a more exotic occupant. From Single Unit to Multi-Unit Enclosures, you want to consider the space and material options that might be best for your animal. Don't know exactly what that might be?

Choosing the Right Design

Our products are organized by style of cage, by species, as well as by application.

You can even take any of our quizzes that will direct you to a models page depending on your specific animal type.

If our Standard Designs aren't quite in line with your vision or your space parameters, we invite you to contact us directly to discuss what Custom Designs ideas you may have. A great place to start if you are thinking custom is to choose a design within our Standard Designs that is closest to your vision and we can customize from there.


The ORIGINAL Portal Between Units

Provide vertical or horizontal access between levels (with removable closures).  The Association of Shelter Veterinarian's Standards for humane animal sheltering suggests this feature is one of the most impactful ways to reduce euthenasia.  

You have the ability to allow access both VERTICALLY from the top level to the bottom, or HORIZONTIALLY between units, and both options can be closed securely with an Insert.

Provide your animal with separate areas for meals and bathroom, as well as an enriched environment with options for both the animal and the human providing care.
