NEED TO 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 and 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 Spectacular.
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," she said.
