RPBA probationary members must agree to uphold the Code of Ethics & Standards outlined by RPBA and must follow your state’s legislation.
Probationary members of the RPBA are eligible to apply to become RPBA full members. This can occur upon email request, the RPBA veterinarian audit is filled out and completed by a practising veterinarian, and the member must understand and commit to following best practices for how to care and bring up their animals.
Probationary breeders must adhere/follow/understand RPBA requirements once joined.
We recommend that you complete your veterinarian audit/check before the 12 months period ends (this can be done via email request), that way you apply to become a full member sooner rather than later, with no additional cost.
If you are a cat or dog breeder or have puppies or kittens in your care, and are confident you can follow the RPBA Code of Ethics & Standards and your state legislation, then you are welcome to apply to join the RPBA via the ‘Join Now‘ link on the right-hand side of this webpage.
Once your RPBA membership is approved, your details will be uploaded to our online probationary member’s database (approval can take a few days or up to 2 weeks), a veterinarian audit form will be provided for probationary members (upon email request) and we may be in touch to ensure you are meeting your commitments as a member. Terms & Conditions can be found here.

Full RPBA Members must understand/follow breeding best practices, our Code of Ethics and Standards and state pet legislation at all times.
You must first join as an RPBA Probationary Member and then you can apply to become a full RPBA member if you pass our requirements and commit to following the RPBA code of ethics & standards and have completed a veterinarian audit/check.
