The ARBA is an organization dedicated to the promotion, development and improvement of the domestic rabbit and cavy. With over 23,000 members throughout the United States, Canada, and abroad, our members range from the pet owner with one rabbit or cavy to the breeder or commercial raiser with several hundred animals. Each aspect of the rabbit and cavy industry whether it be fancy (for exhibition), as a pet, or for commercial value, is encouraged by our organization.

If you have questions about rabbits or the ARBA, please visit our FAQ page or call our office. Show Rules updates and other timely information may be found on our Announcements page. If you would like to visit one of our rabbit or cavy shows, visit our Shows page to find an ARBA sanctioned show near you.

There are numerous benefits to you for joining ARBA, including a copy of the Official Guidebook To Raising Better Rabbits & Cavies (free with the initial membership), a subscription to Domestic Rabbits magazine, Registration, Grand Champion certification and other privileges.
