You can delete an animal by deleting the animal's intake. You can do so via Record Management if you have permissions for editing and deleting intakes and outcomes. 

First navigate to the Record Management page from the gear icon in the top right corner of your screen. 



On the Record Management page, stay on the Intake tab and find the animal you'd like to delete by using the filters and/or search bars above each of the columns of the table. 



Check the box on the left for the animal and then click the grey "Delete Selected" button in the top right corner. 


  • If an animal only has one intake event on file (and no other intake or outcome events) you will be able to delete that intake event and the animal record will be deleted.
  • If an animal has multiple events, you must delete the most recent event first. For example, if you are trying to delete an animal record of an already outcomed animal, you must delete the outcome first and then the intake to completely delete the animal record.
