Resident Cheetahs Namibia
Sponsor an individual cheetah in Namibia. The following cheetahs are available for sponsorship and are being cared for at CCF’s Headquarters in Namibia. These cheetahs came to CCF as orphaned young cubs, injured adolescents, or they were kept as pets and turned over as adults. For multiple reasons resident cheetahs would not be able to successfully care for themselves in the wild so they cannot be released.
It costs approximately $7,000AUD per year to feed, house, and provide medical care for each cheetah being cared for at CCF headquarters in Namibia and at our cheetah safe house in Somaliland.
Livestock Guarding Dogs
Sponsor the Livestock Guarding Dog Program in Namibia. CCF’s Livestock Guarding Dogs are at the core of its efforts to address the human-wildlife conflict that threatens the cheetah. The Anatolian shepherd and Kangal dogs, raised and bred at CCF Namibia headquarters, are placed with Namibian farmers. Updates will be provided twice per year at the program level, updates on individual dogs are not possible at this time.
The dogs protect livestock from cheetah attacks, barking loudly whenever they see a cheetah or predator, scaring the big cats away. Farmers no longer need to kill cheetahs to protect their livestock and their livelihood.
Each Livestock Guarding Dog costs CCF over $1,500AUD per year in care and farmer support training programs. These costs include food, vaccinations, new-owner support, veterinary care and long-term monitoring.
