Established in 1962 and affiliated with the Australian Cat Federation, the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy of South Australia (GCCFSA) is the original controlling body and pedigreed cat registry in this state. The Council is supported by affiliated cat clubs, and we cater for all cat-lovers / owners / breeders of most cat breeds.

Are you looking to find the right cat for you? If it is a purebred breed from a registered breeder, browse through our list of breeders here to find one who suits you. All GCCFSA breeders must follow a code of breeding ethics.
We recommend that buyers purchase only vaccinated and desexed kittens of appropriate age, and that pedigreed kittens be purchased only from breeders registered with an approved Cat Control. The registering bodies can confirm the registration status of breeders. If you plan to exhibit or breed, please check with the breeder and the registering bodies that your feline will be registered as a pedigree cat.

A lifetime DACO breeder number will be allocated to all Governing Council of the Cat Fancy of SA (GCCFSA) members who are registered breeders, and a breeder registration renewal will be sent directly to members during July each year.
Members of your organisation who are required to register as a new breeder will NOW do so directly in DACO and confirm their GCCFSA membership number. GCCFSA will be advised of all new members.
The $75 breeder registration fee applies from 1 July to 30 June each year. GCCFSA members only need to register as a breeder in DACO in the financial year that they intend to sell cats they have bred. A DACO breeder registration number applies to one person and is not transferrable.
DACO breeder number and breeder contact details must be included in all advertisements for sale i.e. newspaper, noticeboard, on-line and social media etc. For more information, visit https://dogandcatboard.com.au/dogs-and-cats-online/guides#breeder-registration
GCCFSA has a program of accreditation (period of 5 years) for catteries (breeding and boarding) that are registered with GCCFSA. The program is intended to show that GCCFSA is acting in a responsible way to promote and protect our catteries and the public.
