Featured Animal Action

American Humane's Certified Animal Safety Representatives were unable to directly supervise the animal action in Hairspray due to the fact that it was filmed internationally and the production did not establish a contract for our oversight. However, 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.
