There are different registering bodies. Some breeds have their own register. Who you register your puppies with, depends on where the parents are registered.
Guide to registering pups with KUSA
If your breeding stock is not registered, then you cannot register the puppies.
The only person who can register your breeding stock is the breeder from whom you bought them.
Both parents must be registered
If there are breeding restrictions on the parents' papers, the only person who can lift them is the breeder from whom you bought.
You will need to join KUSA and pay annual membership fees. Ask them for a form. This can be done at the same time as registering pups. The fees are negligible compared to the value it adds to the litter.
If you wish to register a litter with KUSA, ask them for a form to register a whole litter. They will post it to you. You can join at the same time.

Problems with breeders
If you bought a dog & have a problem getting papers from the breeder, there is no lawyer or organisaton that can help you unless you had a contract in writing with the breeder. If he is in breach of a written contract, then you have a case.
If you have lost your dog's papers and want a copy, the only person who can get it for you is the breeder you bought from.

How to register a cat
In order for any cat to be kept on the National Cat Register, you must ensure that all the registration rules are conformed to. Contact the registrar at
Cat Federation, SA for info regarding the registration rules and/or process, or to obtain a registration form.
Please note that, in order to be able to register with CFSA, you must be a paid-up member of at least one CFSA Afficialiated Club, as per the CFSA Constitution and Registration Rules.
The Cat Federation of Southern Africa was initiated by a group of dedicated, enthusiastic experts in the field who together amassed more than 150 years of experience.
The South African Cat Fancy began to grow into a unified existence some 50 years ago when the Siamese Cat Society (later to become the Transvaal Cat Society) held its first show on a tennis court in Johannesburg, the owners sitting on chairs and holding their cats in their arms. The Natal Cat Club and The Western Province Cat Club came into being soon thereafter and the interest in cats and the improvement of the standard of pedigreed cats grew steadily through the years.
A pedigreed Cat Register was started around 1956 based first of all in Johannesburg and after short spells in Cape Town and Durban returned to Johannesburg where it is still in operation today. The administration of the Fancy was controlled by a Council formed by the many combined Cat Clubs throughout the country.
1996, which saw extensive rearrangement of the administration system, was a year of change and resulted in the birth of the Cat Federation of Southern Africa (CFSA) in 1997. The need for diversification, the freedom of choice and the expression of innovative ideas by Southern African Cat Lovers was recognised by Abe Wagner, Artur de Freitas and Julius Eichbaum and these three can be said, through their hard work and expertise, to be the original founders of the Federation.
The Cat Federation of Southern Africa is a voluntary federation in existence for the purpose of co-ordinating all aspects relating to the Cat Fancy in Southern Africa. It has been formed on the basis of the highest moral and ethical principles as a service to answer the needs of Southern African cat breeders and fanciers.
The principle of the Federation is to work within the objectives of the Cat Fancy and not to upset the rights of others to achieve their objectives.
