Kennels, Cages & Enclosures

Shepherd coated cage wire is the first choice of kennels for fencing, cage construction and flooring. With Shepherd vinyl coated cage mesh, animals always have a dry, sanitary and quieter environment. Portable pens from Shepherd Wire are an easy, humane way to provide a controlled and comfortable environment for pets at home or away. Shepherd’s exclusive fuse-bonded PVC coating hoses clean for the most sanitary conditions possible. Shepherd mesh is also an effective means of nuisance animal control.


Dimensionally consistent, smooth, corrosion resistant Shepherd Wire Mesh is a key element in building quality aviaries. The mesh offers superior protection against predators ensuring safe haven for birds in flight and at rest. Aviaries are meant to allow us to enjoy pet birds in as natural an environment as possible, so it’s important that Shepherd Wire Mesh is unobtrusive to the human eye.
