What can I do if a film is “Not Monitored” by American Humane Association and does not feature the “No Animals Were Harmed”® End Credit Disclaimer?
The “Not Monitored” rating means that the production did not seek monitoring oversight from American Humane's Certified Animal Safety Representatives during filming. Therefore, we cannot attest to the treatment of the animal actors nor know whether the Guidelines for the Safe Use of Animals in Filmed Media were followed.
Because the film industry is vast, American Humane Association needs public support to better protect animals used in entertainment. You can help make sure our Certified Animal Safety Representatives are there to monitor animal action in future films by:
- Choosing to spend your money on films that express a commitment to the humane treatment of animal actors. Before buying tickets, look for our review of the animal action and make sure the film’s producers have taken the right steps to ensure animal safety and well-being.
- Letting your voice be heard. At the movies, stay through the end credits to be sure the film received the “No Animals Were Harmed”® Disclaimer. If you do not see it, e-mail your concerns to American Humane Association at firstname.lastname@example.org.
