TBC Certification FAQ
What is TBC Certification?
The TBC Certification program is an organized effort to recognize the breeders who are proactively health testing their cats and who have demonstrated their desire to put their cats’ well-beings first. These breeders will show at the top of search results in our directory, giving them greater exposure. This also helps to educate customers about the importance of choosing a breeder who completes health testing. Click here to learn more about the program.
How do I get “certified?”
You will have to upgrade your listing to the $249/year package and submit the appropriate documentation. Please review the full instructions on this page.
What do you check for?
In short, verification that the breeder does the following:
- Registers their cats and kittens
- HCM screens
- Tests for P/K Deficiency
- Tests for PRA-b
- Doesn’t let their kittens go home too early
- Strives to keep their cats in a good environment
- Agrees to the TBC Code of Ethics, the first point being this: In all things, I strive to put my cats’ well-being at the forefront of my program.
For a more comprehensive list of the TBC certification process, click here.
Why don’t you check for [insert test or screen here]?
The point of our checks is to determine whether or not a breeder is cutting corners in a clearly measurable area. The Code of Ethics which must be agreed upon covers nearly everything else that a buyer should be looking out for. Each breeder that requests certification will be carefully reviewed and will not be granted certification if I cannot in good conscience do so.
Why should I get certified?
The main purpose of our Certification efforts is to show prospective buyers what a great breeder looks like. I can’t replace the work of a diligent buyer, but I can at least help make their scouting job a little easier and make sure you have plenty of amazing kitten families to pick from. If you support us here and want to set a good example to other breeders while gaining positive exposure for your cattery, we hope you’ll find it well worth the cost and effort to get certified.
I do all of those health tests! Can’t you show that on my listing without me having to pay the upgraded rate?
Sorry, but to receive the benefits of certification, including top placement and greater exposure within the directory, the annual fee applies.
If you want to stick with a free listing but want to share with buyers that you complete essential testing, you can include this in your “About” paragraph and have additional info available on your own website.
You could also upgrade to a regular paid listing, which gives you the options to select which health tests you complete, but this is not the same as Certification, which is only granted after manual verification of your health testing.
As a side note, if you are able to set aside some funds for a “marketing” budget, you will likely find that the increase in exposure will provide you with increased demand. This will allow you to raise your kitten prices accordingly and will allow you to be more selective with the families your kittens go to 😉
