Why do I want to register my rabbit?

In order to participate in the NRA championship system, the rabbit must have some form of identification on them (Ring or tattoo). Every NRA sanctioned event has a star rating that the show is valued at, this is dependent on the classes available ,or the calibre of the judge judging. The star grading can be found on the front of the show schedule. If your rabbit receives CC points, these are recorded in a nation wide data base, and recorded.Once your rabbit has received the appropriate amount of CC’s ,you will be awarded their diploma. The NRA Championship system is all automated, and as an exhibitor you do not need to do anything other than exhibit your rabbit in a NRA show.
