American Humane Association Protects Animals

Professor Parker and Hachi, Hachi: A Dog's Tale

The American Humane Association ensured that our Akitas adults and Shiba puppies were comfortable and safe during the entire shoot. Animals appearing in film and television are testaments to the human-animal bond that is evident in their interaction with their trainers and with cast and crew members, and ultimately, in their effect on audiences.

They are the only organization authorized to issue the “No Animals Were Harmed” end- credit disclaimer, and they set the standard for the humane treatment of animals. They protected our animal stars from any potential harm, and it was a pleasure having them on our set.

American Humane currently monitors 70 percent of known animal actions in film and television productions. This amounts to approximately 2,000 productions annually, where they combine animal welfare and behavioral expertise to care for animal actors and protect their interests.
