American Humane Association partnered with GreenScreen Animals to offer an unusual photo op at press day for Disney’s Secretariat. Stars, members of the press and our staffers posed in front of a green screen to insert themselves into shots from the movie. The green screen was provided by GreenScreen Animals, a Los Angeles-based digital content company. GreenScreen can provide a production with footage of animals in cases where it would be too expensive or potentially unsafe to film the actual animal on set. GreenScreen’s HD stock footage animal content is now being monitored by American Humane Association.
Guidelines for the Safe Use of Animals in Filmed Media -
Protecting Animal Actors
Since the introduction of the Guidelines, animal accidents, illnesses and deaths on set have sharply declined. Our Certified Animal Safety Representatives™ apply the Guidelines on the more than 2,000 productions per year that we monitor, keeping tens of thousands of animal actors safe.
The Historic Legacy of the
Film and Television Unit.
American Humane Association’s Film & TV Unit is the leader in the protection of animal actors. With established Guidelines, on-set monitoring, movie ratings and reviews, and stories from the set, the Film & TV Unit is the only animal welfare organization with oversight sanctioned by the Screen Actors Guild (SAG). American Humane Association assumes the monumental undertaking of providing protection for animal actors and keeps the public informed.

American Humane Association has sole authority, through a contract with the Screen Actors Guild, to protect animals used in the film and television industries. Please help us be there to apply our high standards for the treatment of animals on set, ensuring that "No Animals Were Harmed."®
