CCF cares for over forty orphaned, old or injured cheetahs. Cheetahs like these 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.
Please become a conservation partner and assist us by covering part or all of the annual costs for caring for these non-releasable cheetahs. Each cheetah costs CCF an estimated £2,500 a year in care. These costs include food, veterinary care and pen maintenance.
See photos and stories of CCF's resident cheetahs, and choose which to sponsor (see note at the foot of this page).
Pick a cheetah - there are eight different pages:
If you sponsor the cost of the care of a CCF non-releasable cheetah you will receive two updates during a year (please provide an e-mail address for updates if other than yours). You can also create your own personalised Sponsorship Certificate to print out, and download a special photo poster of your cheetah, taken from the official cheetah ID book in Namibia. Each JPEG poster file is up to 1MB in size and up to 250mm across, and shows pictures of the cheetah, highlighting distinguishing markings for identification. IMPORTANT: If you want the sponsorship to be a gift, be sure to note this using the Message to Seller facility on the main PayPal payment screen.
To create a Sponsorship Certificate or download a poster, be sure to click ‘Return to Merchant’ after you have completed your PayPal transaction, or you will not see our ‘Thank You’ page, which contains the information required.
If you sponsor a cheetah for a whole year (£2,500) you will receive special recognition at our headquarters in Namibia.
These sponsorship pages are administered by the Cheetah Conservation Fund UK. Please consult your tax advisor to establish whether you will qualify for tax benefits if you are not a UK taxpayer.

Note to US Donors
Please note that donations by U.S. residents are not tax deductible when made through the CCF UK web site. Please visit our US Web Site to make a donation or sponsor a cheetah through the CCF USA office and enjoy a fully tax-deductible donation. Thank you for your support!
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.
