Life at CCF

World Vet Day

World Vet Day

Every year, on the last Saturday in April, World Veterinary Day celebrates and honours the lifesaving work performed by veterinarians around the world. The day provides recognition for those who have dedicated their lives to helping animals, and it honours the profession’s role in the health and well-being of animals, people, and communities.

Help us celebrate!

Join us in celebrating the vital lifesaving work of the veterinarian teams at the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia and the Horn of Africa, without whom, much of our work would not be possible.

The CCF veterinary teams are invaluable to the work we do, and we are honoured and privileged to call them our colleagues, teammates, and friends, they truly are the unsung heroes of CCF.

These dedicated and committed teams are some of the most caring and selfless people in the world. They are a huge asset, not only to CCF, but most importantly, to the sick, injured, orphaned and vulnerable cheetahs (and other animals) whose lives they transform.

Not all heroes wear capes (some wear scrubs!)

They have the difficult task of taking care of and helping animals recover from injury and illness, which isn’t your typical 9 to 5 job.  Whether it is diagnosing and treating a sick cheetah, administering routine health checks, performing lifesaving surgery, hand rearing orphaned cubs, supporting the livestock guarding dog breeding programme, caring for goats and sheep at our model farm, or the many other vital veterinary tasks that they carry-out around the clock, the impact that these people have on animal lives is immeasurable.

If you would like to support our hero vet teams, today, a donation of just £20 will help buy vital veterinary supplies to support the ongoing lifesaving work that the CCF vet teams deliver.
