Sponsor a Resident Cheetah
CCF cares for orphaned, old or injured cheetahs that cannot be released back into the wild as they do not have the skills or physical capability to survive. Although CCF is not a welfare centre, it does accommodate these non-releasable cheetahs. If another approved home becomes available, CCF relocates these cheetahs to an alternate captive facility. However, many of these cheetahs are permanent residents of CCF.

By sponsoring a non-releasable cheetah you can help us cover part or all of the annual costs for caring for them. Each cheetah costs CCF an estimated $5,000 a year in care and include food, veterinary care and pen maintenance.
When you sponsor a cheetah at any level you receive:
- Two e-mail updates on your sponsored cheetah. These updates are only sent by e-mail. Please be sure to include the e-mail address of the person who should receive these cheetah updates if other than yourself.
- A link to a page where you can download:
- a personalized sponsorship certificate
- a high-resolution ID poster of your sponsored cheetah
Sponsorships of $1,000 and above:
- A personal letter of thanks from Dr. Laurie Marker
- A discount when visiting CCF Namibia
Sponsorships of $5,000 and above:
- Plaque of recognition at CCF’s Field and Research Centre in Namibia

Note: You will understand that we do sometimes exchange animals with other organisations for breeding and other purposes, and that occasionally we are able to release them into the wild. So while your 'sponsorship' is nominally earmarked for an individual animal, we must reserve the right to redirect your donation to another animal or group of animals if the need arises.
