While there are no legal requirements as yet regarding on-set animal welfare for performing animals, there are robust guidelines in place that must be adhered to for both the safety and wellbeing of the animal(s) and crew, as well as the integrity of the shoot.
Janus provides animal welfare expert knowledge, advice, support, and care (as dictated by the Animal Welfare Act 2006).
