You should be able to find the answers to all of your questions below.  However, if you have any additional questions or comments, please email us at find-a-breeder@cfa.org.

Frequently Asked Questions

Advertisements are available to CFA registered catteries in good standing that have registered a litter within the past 2 years. You will need a litter registration number for any litter within the past 2 years  when you first sign up for this service.

Your basic listing includes 1 – 5 breeds for $44.95 for a one-year listing. This price includes 1 – 10 photos. A breeder may purchase more than one listing, if for example, you have more than one cattery name and wish to have a separate description and photo gallery for each.

All descriptions and photos must be reviewed by CFA prior to publication. Once approved, your listing will be shown. You will receive an email from CFA, telling you what has been approved or denied. While you, as the breeder, can access your listing under your dashboard when logged on, it will not be available to the general public until CFA approves it.

CFA does not allow the mention of other registries, nor of breeds not currently accepted for registration at CFA. Each denial message will include a reason for our action.
