Did you ever wonder who is behind the "no animals were harmed in the making of this film" statement that pops up on the screen at the end of a movie? American Humane, a national non-profit organization that advocates for children and animals, that's who. American Humane’s Film & Television Unit supervises the use of animals on movie sets in Hollywood and around the world. American Humane also monitors television shows, commercials and student films.
American Humane's Certified Animal Safety Representatives observe the animal actors and monitor their safety according to strict guidelines. The Film and TV unit then rates the movie based on what they observed.
