A Bit About Us:
A1 Savannahs, formerly New Horizon Bengals, was founded by Joyce Sroufe.
Joyce started breeding Savannah Cats in the late 1980's and started to register first litters in 1994. She is well known among exotic cat owners and breeders as the original founder of the Savannah Cat Breed and an expert in the breeding and care of exotic cats.
After Joyce retired, the Stucki Family purchased and cared for the cats for about 10 years, improving the breed along the way. In September 2013, The Engster Family in partner with Dana Fulton have taken the role of improving and advancing the Savannah Breed.
