Description:
The British Rabbit Council (or BRC) is a showing organisation for rabbit lovers all over the UK. The rabbit is Britain's third most popular pet.

Structure

To enter most rabbit shows, you must be a member and your rabbit must have a metal ring around its foot registered in your name. In breed classes the rabbits are judged to a standard. Shows are rated from 1* to 5*, 1 being the lowest and 5 the highest.

Recognised breeds

There are over 50 breeds recognised by the BRC and over 500 varieties. These are split into 4 groups - Fancy, Fur, Rex and Lop.

Function

The BRC's aim is 'To protect, further and co-ordinate the interests of all British rabbit breeders; to assist and extend the exhibition rabbits, to influence, advise and co-operate with central and local authorities, departments, education and other committees and schools in promoting the extension of the breeding of rabbits, and to promote and encourage education and research of a scientific and/or practical nature for the welfare and benefit of the rabbit.'

History

It was formed in 1934 from the British Rabbit Society and the National Rabbit Council of Great Britain and her Dominions.
