It sounds like a scam to me.
Lately in 'the dog world', many "new" registries have popped up, with deceptive acronyms that copy real registries (several new "CKC"s have popped up, that are not the Canadian Kennel Club), others simply with official sounding names.
These "new" registries make it very easy to register any animal, and also most don't hold any shows or have much function it seems other than to lend legitimacy to what is not, take in money, and help disreputable breeders. This way people can say, oh this cat or dog is registered with so and so, duping the not so informed buyer into thinking it is a purebred when it may not be.
Just my take on it.
