The North Carolina Cavy Breeders Association was established in 1986. Our club is chartered under the American Rabbit Breeders Association and affiliated with the American Cavy Breeders Association (our national club).
The North Carolian Cavy Breeders Assocation (NCCBA) is considered a regional club which means we host shows in ARBAs Districts 6 & 9 some of these states include Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina and South Carolina to name a few. Sponsoring sanctioned shows has also been a high priority, since they were a rarity in our region before the club was established.
This is a regional cavy club that is made up of breeders, cavy enthusiasts, exhibitors and fanciers of the 13 ARBA recognized breeds. We also have some members who have loving guinea pigs as pets who participate in our yearly costume contest. Some of our goals include education of the public as well as education and encouragement of prospective breeders.

The animal known as a guinea pig to most people is called a cavy (pronounced K-V) by breeders and fanciers. A female is called a sow and the male a boar. Because they
don't require much room, have no odor, and seldom bite, cavies make ideal pets.
