We welcome and encourage all Sphynx breeders to join the initiative. Applying and becoming a Hairless Hero is 100% free and is a way to show that you as a breeder are committed to both the breed and those who adopt from you.
Approved catteries are given a place on the website as well as a personalized Hairless Hero seal to display on their websites. Displaying the seal is not a requirement, but it’s a good way to show potential adopters that you’re a conscientious breeder.
In the event that you are denied membership we will explain what criteria were not met and how to rectify it. Previously denied applicants are free to reapply. After becoming a Hairless Hero you must continue to adhere to the same criteria. You will be expected to submit scans to the SRB database annually for all active and retired cats.
Hairless Heroes only accepts breeders of Sphynx/Canadian Sphynx and Donskoy/Don Sphynx. We will accept catteries that breed others in addition to Sphynx/Donskoy but we can only endorse the above breeds.
We do not endorse breeders of Bambino/Minskin, Elf, Dwelf, and other Sphynx offshoots, and have no intention of doing so in the future.
The Sphynx/Rex Breeders database (SRB) is a database administrated by Wil Olfers that archives cats, their scan history, and their pedigrees. This is the database Hairless Heroes uses for tracking scan history of endorsed breeders and to make things easy for us we will only be accepting scans through this database.
