Llama breeders and llama farms sell llamas, and some pet adoption organizations, such as AdoptAPet.com, include llamas among the animals they place in adoptive homes. Notable llama farms in the United States that sell llamas to the general public include WalnutRidgeLlamas.com, SplitRockLlamas.com and LlamaNation.com.
There are different breeds of llama with different desired characteristics, including registration bloodlines, length and quality of hair, and build for showmanship. A purebred, blue-ribbon-bred llama is more sought after for breeding and shows and thus typically carries a premium price tag. Show llamas are usually male, although most farms sell both male and female llamas.
