ARBA American Rabbit Breeders Association

AFLRC  AMERICAN FUZZY LOP RABBIT CLUB
A good site for Breed Standard of Perfection, Scheduled Sanctioned shows and Sweepstakes Reporting (who has the most points for Herdsman of the year and fuzzy lop of the year etc. and Fuzzy lop Members Directory. Note not all top Fuzzy lop breeders choose to be a member of the club so the top fuzzy lop report standings are for members only. But it is a good place to for a beginner to start.  With your first membership you get a soft cover book full of Fuzzy lop information and a subscription to Fuzzy tails magazine sent out a few time a year.
