The American Rabbit Breeders Association currently recognizes 48 unique rabbit breeds and 13 different breeds of cavies. Within many of these breeds, there are also several (in some cases numerous), varieties (coat and eye-color variations), that demonstrate the diversity which draws so many into the fascinating and rewarding hobby of rabbit and cavy husbandry. Below are resources that will aid individuals in their decision process when determining which breed or breeds are right for them - whether the focus is on procuring foundation stock for a show or breeding hobby or simply adding a companion animal to the household.

Below are pictures of all currently recognized breeds of rabbits and cavies. Each breed is backed by a national breed specialty club and it is highly recommended that those interested in one or more breeds contact the secretary of the national specialty club for information regarding breeders who may have breeding, show, or pet stock available. In addition, most national specialty clubs have a website promoting their breed and organization. If a website is available, clicking on that breed's picture below will connect you to the corresponding website for the associated specialty club if a website is available. Please Note: The ARBA does not maintain the websites for the national specialty clubs and is not responsible for the availability of those sites. National specialty clubs should contact the ARBA immediately if there is a change in their club's website address. Specialty clubs without a valid website address will be linked instead to their club's information found on the National Specialty Clubs page on this website.

The ARBA also offers the Standard of Perfection which contains not only detailed descriptions of each recognized rabbit and cavy breed and variety, but also features a glossary of terms, information related to exhibiting and judging, and more. Published every five years, the Standard of Perfection is the ultimate resource for the rabbit or cavy breeder/exhibitor.
