We have assembled some helpful links to alpaca organizations and associations. Back when Kings Highway Alpacas was first established, with two gelding fleece boys no less, this incredibly useful group was called AOBA which stood for Alpaca Owners & Breeders Association, Inc. There was a merger between AOBA and the Alpaca Registry Incorporated or ARI back in 2014. They were renamed Alpaca Owners Association or AOA. That's all that happened so don't let the acronyms confuse you.
