- Public sources: Public donations, animals obtained from a pound, a pet shop or other public sources. This includes privately owned pets which are ‘borrowed’ for the duration of the exercise (e.g. veterinary nurse training).
- Commercial sources: Obtained from a commercial supplier of animals.
- From farms: Farm animals obtained from a farm; the farm may be a commercial unit or belong to the institution. Animals such as a pet which happens to live on a farm or wild animals caught on farmland should not be included in this category.
- Captured: Captured in the wild.
- Imported: Imported into New Zealand from an overseas source.
- Born during projects: Intended for offspring whose birth is part of the project, e.g. lambing or hatching studies.
- Breeding unit: An institutional unit dedicated to breeding animals for manipulation.
The above definitions were taken from the Ministry for Primary Industries.
