Welcome To District 3

Affiliated with the American Rabbit Breeders Association

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the AMERICAN RABBIT BREEDERS ASSOCIATION (ARBA) District 3 website. District 3 consists of the states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Nebraska, and Iowa. It is a district with a strong tradition of quality animals and friendly breeders. District 3 members travel nationwide to exhibit successfully their rabbits and cavies. In addition to national competition, there are also a myriad of opportunities for breeders, both experienced and newcomers, to exhibit their pride and joy at shows both large and small within the district. On this website, you will find links to the state organizations in our district, as well as links to the national breed clubs and the ARBA. I hope you enjoy your visit to our website and have the opportunity to join us in our hobby. We would also appreciate any suggestions you might have to improve our website. Please direct those suggestions to our webmaster.

ARBA District 3 Director

The DISTRICT 3 REPORTER is a great resource to find out what is going on in our area. If you are unsure if you are in District 3, it includes American Rabbit Breeders Association members who raise and breed rabbits and cavies in the states of Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Simply, this is a list where we can discuss issues new and old, advise, inform, advertise and most of all stay on tap with what is going on in District 3.

The AMERICAN RABBIT BREEDERS ASSOCIATION, INC. is an organization dedicated to the promotion, development and improvement of the domestic rabbit and cavy. With over 30,000 members throughout the United States, Canada, and abroad,our members range from the pet owner with one rabbit or cavy to the breeder or commercial raiser with several hundred animals. Each aspect of the rabbit and cavy industry, whether it be fancy (for exhibition), as a pet, or for commercial value, is encouraged by our organization. We welcome all levels of rabbit and cavy enthusiasts to join our rewarding association.

Each year an ARBA NATIONAL CONVENTION is held and this year the 84th Annual Convention & Show will be in Grand Rapids, Michigan at the DeVos Convention Center from October 14 through October 18, 2007. The headquarters hotel is the Amway Grand Plaza.

For those of you who like to plan ahead, the 85th Annual Convention & Show will be in Louisville, Kentucky.

Below is a list of your ARBA STATE REPRESENATIVES who have been appointed by our previous director, Mike Avesing. These devoted volunteers continually keep track of what is happening in their respective state. They help out in running shows, educational programs and even a few might judge your animals some day. They are experienced rabbit and cavy breeders who are highly resourceful, so please do not hesitate to contact any of them. Take some time to introduce yourself to one of them at an upcoming show
