Animal Ordering

Ordering Animals

A revised order form has been developed for ordering animals that originate from Animal Care Services’ rat and swine breeding colonies. Effective immediately, please use the following form:

Animal Order Form

Signatures required: The signature of the Principal Investigator is required for animal orders. If the PI wishes to delegate animal ordering to a member of the research laboratory, a signed memo from the PI is required. For teaching courses, the lab instructor’s signature is required.

Delivery deadlines:

  • Animal orders must be submitted by Wednesday in order to have them delivered Wednesday or Thursday of the following week. If you request a later delivery please specify the date requested in the Special Request Section.

NOTICE: Principal Investigators may order animals currently using their institutional procurement cards. This process will be handed over to the Animal Care Services in 2014. The change is necessary to ensure appropriate health status upon entry, space and equipment availability.

Further details will be provided in the upcoming months.

Ordering Supplies

Principal Investigators are encouraged to purchase their supplies through Animal Care Services in order to maintain consistent inventory control and material standards. Animal Care Services currently purchases husbandry, laundry, surgical and procedural supplies.
