Our Exclusive Trademark

American Humane Holds the Trademark of the Certification and Is the Exclusive Monitoring and Approval Body for Animals Used in Films The American public and much of the international film-going community look for the “No Animals Were Harmed”® end-credit certification at the end of theatrical films. It is their assurance that the animal actors used in those productions were not harmed in any way, and that their well-being and safety was assured by the trusted, credible and historic American Humane Association. However, some movies mislead the public and create a significant breach of trust with film-goers by inserting unauthorized “No Animals Were Harmed” end credits that have not been granted by American Humane Association, and whose productions were not monitored on-set by American Humane Association's highly trained Certified Animal Safety Representatives™. Filmmakers and distributors should verify the legitimacy of the “No Animals Were Harmed”® credit with American Humane Association's Film & TV Unit before approving and finalizing any films for theatrical, DVD or other release. Here's the latest list of current or recent films using an illegitimate end credit:

  • 2:22
  • Adam
  • District 9
  • Easy Virtue
  • How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
  • Shrink
  • Tamara Drewe
  • The King's Speech
