PAWSI was founded in 1999 by Rona Brown and Peter Scott to take on the work they had been doing in developing standards and training for animals used in the media.

The standards grew from a wide range of sources including material given originally by Rona Brown to the American Humane Association in the 70’s. Many people contributed to this important work and several sets of standards developed around the world. Peter Scott became involved in the mid 80’s and the concept of PAWSI arose in the late 90’s.

Both Rona and Peter were involved with the Animal Filming and Training Commission (AFTC) which on behalf of Skillset developed the NVQ structure now adopted by LANTRA – hopefully soon to be offered as courses by Colleges such as Sparsholt

PAWSI works with media productions and with veterinary surgeonsto develop a set of standards and show how they can be achieved and certified on a production. On completion a Certificate is issued to confirm compliance with the PAWSI standards.

PAWSI is working with DEFRA, Scottish Executive, RSPCA, Dogs Trust already and is happy to work with any group who wishes to forward the interests and welfare of animals in the media.
