The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy is a “not for profit” organisation. For those not familiar with the term this does not mean it makes no profit but rather it seeks to generate a small surplus each year which is used to invest in the business to expand and/or improve its services to its customers. Whilst the GCCF is looking at all ways of generating income in order to limit the fees it needs to charge its customers, these charges for services are necessary and are shown below.
1. By cheque payable to “The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy”.
2. The GCCF will happily take card payments. Simply mark on the application form or include a note with your registration or transfer to say you wish to pay by card. The onus is on you, the applicant, to phone the office to make the payment. Please allow 3 working days from sending in your application before telephoning the Office.
