Movie making has its challenges for humans and non human beings. Animal actors have been on set and a integral part of Hollywood history and responsible for some of Hollywood's biggest films, although their rights were not always taken seriously. The studios and established animal rights groups such as American Humane take precautions to ensure animal actors are protected but sometimes this falls short. The film: "A Dog's Purpose" based on the best selling book promises to make you cry, and laugh however what happened on set may leave you thinking: "I thought this was not supposed to happen". Please remember the dog in question - Hercules was not physically harmed it was the way he was handled and forced to do a scene that is the issue as he would not have been treated that way if he were a human child. Could the scene have been re-written? You decide, The Details h/t Variety.

Because not to do so would be a resounding: "NO!" to the future and a: "YES!" to the status quo" - Alyssia Alexandria, Founder
