Featured Animal Action

An American Humane Certified Animal Safety Representative™ was unable to directly supervise the animal action in Away We Go due to limited resources or scheduling conflicts. One sequence takes place at a race track where greyhounds run the track during a race. The production complied with all registration requirements, submitted a shooting script and relevant animal scheduling information and provided a pre-release screening of the film, as requested by American Humane.
