You’ve probably seen our “No Animals Were Harmed”® disclaimer at the end of movies. But did you know that American Humane Association’s Los Angeles-based Film & TV Unit is the film and television industry’s only officially-sanctioned animal monitoring program?
Our Film & TV Unit has exclusive on-set jurisdiction from the Screen Actors Guild to supervise the use of animals in movies, TV shows, commercials and short films. Our Certified Animal Safety Representatives™ work around the world — not just in Hollywood — to ensure that productions meet our strict Guidelines for the Safe Use of Animals in Filmed Media.
With published guidelines and highly-trained staff, we are a valuable resource for producers, filmmakers and screen writers. Our team members work with industry professionals to protect animal actors and promote animal welfare.
It's important to remember the amazing animals in this year's films who brought such joy and emotion to millions worldwide. In the spirit of acknowledging the incredible performances of 2011, American Humane Association is thrilled to announce the winners of the 2012 PAWSCAR Awards.
