Responsible Pet Breeders Australia was founded so that responsible dog breeders, cat breeders and pet buyers could have a platform to ensure the health, happiness and well-being of all pets, no matter their pedigree. We believe that all pet owners and breeders deserve a chance to access crucial resources, information and support to be able to provide their pets with the best lives possible.
All of us at Responsible Pet Breeders Australia love our pets, and we know that pet owners love their pets as well. This is why we have always endeavoured to make it easy and quick for pet breeders, owners and buyers to become members of our growing community of ethical breeders and owners.
We also want to reward the members who have displayed their knowledge and expertise in the ethical breeding and raising of their pets time and time again. RPBA is rolling out a new membership tier structure to emphasise the contributions of these members to the wider pet community in Australia.
Currently, members who reach a specific tier will have their tier status shown on the RPBA member list
Please note that membership tiers only take into account uninterrupted membership tenure. For example, if you are a Platinum Tier member and you cancel your membership, your membership tenure will be reset, and you will have to work your way back up through the Gold Tier and back to Platinum.
If you are interested in beginning your journey to become a Platinum Tier RPBA member, you can sign up for membership today. Applying only takes two steps: payment and registration. After submitting your membership details, all you have to do is wait for our approval email regarding your membership application.
