(1) be built to prevent the animal from escaping and to prevent the infliction of an injury or stress by another animal not kept in the same yard;
(2) have a surface that drains easily;
(3) if outdoors, contain an area large enough to protect the animal from bad weather and the adverse effects of the sun; and
(4) have a fence with posts and wire mesh, if applicable, and all other components, that are in good condition and free of parts jutting out and sharp edges or other potential causes of injury.
