Any breeders who wish to join RPB must have less than 10 breeding female dogs/and or cats. However, if you expect to have more than 20 puppies and/or kittens each year, you are required to have a breeding license from the Texas department of licensing and regulation before joining RPB.
Depending on the county in which you reside, you may also be required to obtain a “breeding permit” from your council. These details will be required when you sign up as a member with RPB.
In some areas this may require you to have a “commercial breeding permit” in order to legally be able to breed and sell animals.
All of your breeding animals are required to be up to date with their vaccinations (canine and feline vaccinations and rabies vaccinations) and be registered with your county/council as required.
