CAST CATTLE, camels or canines in your next production? Dawn Animal
Agency has been providing creatures on camera in NYC productions for
more than five decades – with a bit of coordination from the Mayor’s
Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting. We have
trained swans, chickens, all sorts of pet birds, peacocks, cows, sheep,
goats, monkeys, all sorts of horses, ponies, camels, wolves, dogs, cats,
zebra, pigs, bugs, snakes, rodents of all shapes and sizes all on our
farm... please remember these animals help support the less fortunate
animals we have in our Sanctuary.
Bambi Brook, a third-generation family member in the business, has
run 16 elephants down Wall Street for Letterman, staged
a 60-member dog show at Roseland for Sex and the
City, and herded 24 cows and 16 horses through
Times Square for Good Morning America. Her
family operates a farm 75 miles outside the City with over 600
animals available for production, including bears, big cats, camels,
horses, fox, dogs, yak and elephants.
Recently, Brook provided the animals who played police horses on Law
& Order, bomb sniffing dogs on the Spike Lee
film Inside Man, and a cat
rescued in a fire on Rescue Me. She
also handles the animals in
Radio City Music Hall’s Christmas
All of the horses acting as police horses are
rescues and were saved from being slaughtered.
“There are so many exciting scenes shot in New York City that it is
extremely rewarding and fun to be part of the production industry,”
