30. Animal keeping facilities are classified as follows:
(1) a cage;
(2) an enclosure;
(3) a shift cage;
(4) a shift enclosure.
A cage is a space closed on all its faces, in particular using walls, windows or wire mesh, so that the animal cannot get out. It is accessible through openings equipped with doors that can be closed.
An enclosure is a space open on certain of its faces and includes obstacles which prevent the animal from getting out.
A shift cage and a shift enclosure are spaces used to lock up an animal outside its cage or enclosure, in particular to allow its keeper to safely access the cage or enclosure. They communicate directly, as the case may be, with a cage or an enclosure by means of a door that can be closed.
The living area of an immovable used for residential purposes is not considered as an animal keeping facility.
