Working with Us

Welcome! We look forward to working with your production. American Humane is the only industry-sanctioned organization monitoring animals in filmed media and enjoys a rich history of working in coordination with productions to ensure the highest levels of animal actor safety. Let us share our expertise with you.

All productions filming with animals must register with American Humane. To be eligible for the No Animals Were Harmed certification, a Certified Animal Safety Rep (CASR) on set is required. CASRs monitor all animal action filming dates, regardless of action intensity or animal type, including insects, background animals, unscripted animals, and animals provided by extras and/or private parties.

Don’t expose yourself to risk. If any animal is going to be on your set, you need American Humane there monitoring the action. Let us work with you and protect your animal stars!


American Humane is pleased to announce that effective July 1, 2022 our “No Animals Were Harmed®” program services, including travel costs, will be available at no-charge to SAG-AFTRA productions working in the U.S. and qualified SAG-AFTRA productions working internationally due to the generous support and commitment to animal protection of our funders, the SAG-AFTRA Producers Industry Advancement Fund (IACF).
