Easily recognised by its spotted coat and black ‘tear marks’ below its eyes, the cheetah is known as the fastest land animal in the world – reaching speeds of up to 75mph.
Sadly, cheetahs are at risk and listed as vulnerable due to habitat loss, poaching, illegal pet trade, and conflict with humans.
Cheetah cubs are also often trafficked out of Africa to feed the growing illegal demand for pets in the Middle East.
Help care for a wild animal and you'll receive an exclusive adoption pack containing a soft toy, animal story, species fact sheet, certificate and glossy photo. Plus, you'll also receive our Adopt magazine twice a year with updates on all our wildlife adoptions – perfect for animal lovers.
Funds from your adoption will support the lifetime care for rescued cheetahs at our santuary in Ethiopia and help conserve wild populations across Africa. You can help ensure their future by adopting our cheetah family below.
