Featured Animal Action

American Humane's Film & Television Unit did not monitor this direct-to-video film. Although Moto X Kids was a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) production, and therefore, required to provide American Humane's Certified Animal Safety Representatives on-set access whenever animals were used, the filmmakers failed to notify American Humane of their intention to use animals in this production. Because American Humane did not monitor the animal action in this film, it has received the rating Not Monitored.

How to make sure American Humane is there

The "Not Monitored" rating means American Humane's Film & Television Unit was not contacted regarding animal action in the film and was unable to verify that animals were treated humanely. Films like Moto X Kids typically receive the "Not Monitored" rating because the film's producers did not involve American Humane and may not have followed American Humane's Guidelines for the Safe Use of Animals in Filmed Media. Because the film industry is vast, American Humane needs your support to better protect animals used in entertainment.
