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 worldwide. Broken Jersey Woolies were accepted as a recognized variety at the 2004 ARBA Convention in Rhode Island.  

SancReqFormThe 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.
