The National Rabbit Association of New Zealand

Rabbit club New Zealand

Membership

The NRA offers  more than just a membership, we offer you ongoing support, for you and your rabbits. We have the support of Australia to give us frequent up to date reports on the Calici Virus.

The NRA is proud to get our junior exhibitors involved in exhibiting their rabbits, after all they are the future of the rabbit fancy here in New Zealand. Check out our junior development program (JDP) that is run each year alongside the NRA convention.

The NRA has a large amount of local clubs spread over New Zealand. These clubs are the heart and soul of the NRA as they are our true voices. All NRA sanctioned shows offer Challenge cards from qualified judges, so that diplomas can be worked towards. Many of our clubs also offer pet shows, where your NRA pet passport can be used in pursuit of becoming the next NRA Pet supreme champion exhibitor.

We wish you well in your endeavor to help protect the breeds recognised in New Zealand and to have an enjoyable time at your next NRA sanctioned event.
