Step 1:

What is your current breeder or owner status?

(This is for verification only and will not appear in listing)

The herd initials, for a Small Private Breeder (SPB), is created by combining "SPB" with your state and your first and last name initials.
Example: If John Smith ("JS") lives in Oklahoma ("OK"), the herd initials would be SPB-OK-JS.

Below is an excerpt from page 11 of Licensing and Registration Under the Animal Welfare Act, Guidelines for Dealers, Exhibitors, Transporters, and Researchers.

Hobby Dealers—Small-scale breeders and other dealers with gross sales under $500 per year are exempt, as long as these sales do not include wild or exotic animals, dogs, or cats. If you own no more than four breeding female pet animals, "pocket pets", and/or domesticated farm-type animals, and sell only their offspring, which were born and raised on your premises for pets or exhibition, you are exempt. ("Pocket pets" are small, nondangerous exotic or wild mammals, such as sugar gliders, hedgehogs, degus, spiny mice, prairie dogs, flying squirrels, and jerboas.) Also, you are exempt if you sell fewer than 25 dogs and/or cats each year, which were born and raised on your premises, for research, teaching, or testing purposes or to any research facility. These exemptions do not extend to anyone acting in concert with others where they maintain a total of more than four breeding females (in case of pet or exhibition sales) or more than 25 dogs and/or cats (in the case of research).

Welcome. Currently, the Hedgie List Pedigree Resource provides breeders with access to a database to help breeders keep true and accurate information for their animals. In the very near future, we will also provide pet registrations for pet owners such as yourself. Please feel free to register now so we can notify you when this feature is ready.
