Responsible Pet Breeders Australia (RPBA)

happy vet checking


The RPBA supports a positive approach to all hybrid & genetically diverse, purebred pets. Members must allow their pets to be brought up in a loving & positive home & have selected a suitable family home for them.


RPBA members are responsible for the healthy wellbeing & upbringing of their pets. Members must follow best practices, animal welfare standards, healthy diet and offer lifetime re-homing programs.


RPBA members must abide & uphold welfare centered code of practice & standards for our veterinarian audited approved breeders. And follow the guidelines set by RPBA & Australian state legislation.

Responsible Pet Breeders Australia was founded in 2018 on the principle that all dog and cat breeders and owners should have a platform to share their voice and ensure the well being of cats and dogs, to be treated ethically, with love and care, regardless of whether they are purebred or not.

Other organisations such as state kennel clubs only monitor breeds with long pedigrees, especially for competition conformation, but we recognise that these rules do not guarantee the health and suitability of most pets for most pet owners nationwide.

The RPBA goal is that all dogs and cats should find the right suitable loving family home.

Whether they are purebred or not, after all, not all animals are pedigree across Australia.

We believe that non-pedigree breeders should follow the same level of care and consideration, and so the RPBA has been formed to provide guidelines, code of ethics and standards and recognition to all breeders, not just the ones with pedigrees.

The aim of our site is to ensure the absolute best conditions/upbringing for all dogs and cats that are bred and sold, for the welfare of the animals and new owners alike.
