October 18th, 2009 - Paris, France 

The French agricultural department designated A1Savannahs as an approved educational facility for Serval cats and Savannah cats. A1Savannahs is currently training a French breeder. After two months training at A1Savannahs in Oklahoma, the French government granted the couple from Paris the permit to import, raise and breed African Servals and Savannah cats in Paris France. 

The first non-zoological facility in France to be granted the permit to breed servals was trained by A1Savannahs.


Hello and Welcome to A1 Savannahs.

Our cattery is USDA Licensed and a Preferred Breeder Registered with The International Cat Association (TICA). If you are looking for a Savannah Kitten, then you have come to the right place. A1 Savannahs has been breeding the finest Savannah Kittens since the beginning. 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 her first litters in 1994. She is also 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. A1 Savannahs is now owned by Martin and Amanda Engster. Often imitated, we are the original founder of the Savannah Cat breed, and have many years combined of knowledge and experience.
