Welcome to the National Jersey Wooly Club or NJWRC website. Here you will find information on the "Fluff of the Fancy " as this wooly little rabbit breed is known.
The Jersey Wooly is one of the dwarf domestic rabbit breeds, having a maximum weight allowance of 3 ½ lbs. and an ideal weight of 3 lbs. They are popular rabbits for show and exhibition.
Jersey Woolies are known for their friendly temperament. They come in a variety of colors and make excellent pets, 4-H projects, and are a hobby to many dedicated breeders.
The Jersey Wooly was first introduced at the 1984 A.R.B.A. Convention in
Orlando, Florida by Bonnie Seeley of Highbridge, NJ. In 1988 at the
A.R.B.A. Convention, in Madison, Wisconsin, it became a recognized
breed. Bonnie originally developed the breed in order to produce a small
pet rabbit with wool that was easy to care for. Today, the Jersey Wooly is
that, and much more, as one of the most popular breeds of rabbits
exhibited around the country with a club membership of over 700
Broken Jersey Woolies were accepted as a recognized variety at the 2004
ARBA Convention in Rhode Island.
The Jersey Wooly, are exhibited at both local and national shows throughout
the country, in much the same manner that dogs and cats are shown. Each rabbit is compared to the Standard of
Perfection for it's breed, and competes against others of its own breed for
BEST OF BREED [BOB] honors. Then, each BOB
is judged against one another for the coveted BEST IN SHOW [BIS] title.
The NJWRC boasts members across the USA, Canada, Malaysia and Japan. NJWRC members have the
privilege of competing in the annual
Sweepstakes Contest which measures to a degree, the success of members exhibiting at local, state, and national all breed and Jersey Wooly specialty shows.
