Animal Ordering

Animals from a number of approved commercial vendors can be imported directly into UAC facilities. Ordering from approved animal vendors is a streamlined process through eSirius3G. Once your order has been placed in eSirius3G, the UAC Procurement Office makes the necessary arrangements with the vendor and UAC Husbandry staff for the shipping, receipt, and housing of your animals.
