Does anybody pay attention to the end of the movie when animals are involved & it says no animals were harmed in this movie production or something?

Whatever happened to that? Is it for real? Anybody know how this plays out in other countries?

It's something provided by the American Humane Society. I'm not sure, but I think they provide that when they have been on the set to make sure there was no animal cruelty. So even if a movie doesn't have the disclaimer, that doesn't mean animals were harmed.

I've noticed it's used a fair amount in jest. Like at the end of Wallace and Gromit (a sort of animated thing about a man and his dog using plasticine models) it says "no animals were harmed" when obviously they weren't because they're, er, made out of plasticine.

I was chatting to a woman at a party who works for an advertising company. She worked on an Andrex (toilet paper brand, their mascot is a golden labrador puppy) advert and said there were vets supervising it and every five minutes or so they would express concern that the puppies were getting tired of all the frolicking in toilet paper and insist they had a rest. It was a cute story, I was pleased to hear they took the welfare seriously.
