All productions using animals in Arizona should contact the Arizona Game & Fish Department to discuss the particular policies that will need to be established and followed regarding the species being used.

Moreover, productions are encouraged to work closely with the American Humane Film and Television Unit, as well as, the US Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Services to ensure proper care & handling of animal actors.


Please consult the American Humane Guidelines for the Safe Use of Animals in Filmed Media and visit their website for more information.
