Animal Delivery and Receipt

The CCR staff will receive animals and cage them appropriately. Principle Investigators are responsible for checking their orders on the day of arrival and notifying the CCR office of any discrepancies or problems immediately to ensure proper credit or replacement.

Animal delivery schedule

  • Monday: Rodents from Envigo and Charles River
  • Wednesday: Rodents from Jackson Lab
  • Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday: Taconic, pigs, dogs and cats from various vendors.

Delivery days are subject to change due to holiday schedules.

Animal transfers

The IACUC provides a mechanism for research animals purchased on one approved protocol to be transferred to another IACUC-approved protocol. Transfer must consider any prior use of the animal, as some limitations would prevent transfer of certain animals (contact the IACUC coordinator for details). Any animal transfers must include the CCR Office and IACUC to assure appropriate animal accounting information.

Print the Animal Transfer Form, complete, and deliver or fax (984-1742) the signed form to the CCR office. Signatures from both investigators are required prior to any billing/invoices being altered. The CCR Business Office can assist in coordinating animal transfers; contact Tammy Pruitt or Tammy Seaton.
