Your generosity has helped all the animals at Cheetah Experience!

Our beautiful Aloe
As you know, we are a non profit organisation and so far, we've always been lucky enough to get meat donated for our animals. In the past few months we've been struggling to get meat donations. To ensure our animals receive proper nutrition and care, we have had to purchase large quantities of red meat for our animals. Your generous donations have gone towards the purchasing of meat for our animals, and they are extremely extremely grateful!
Not only have we had some trouble with sourcing meat, we've also been dealing with some cheetahs struggling with their health. One of our beloved cheetahs Aloe had to be rushed to the vet when we found her completely unresponsive one day. The vet told us she had had a seizure so we gave her medication and had someone keeping an eye on her at all time. Aloe battled with seizures for months, having up to 10 seizures a day, and after many tests, no cause was found. Her condition deteriorated rapidly and after more tests, dead spots were found on Aloe's brain, causing the seizures. We had no choice but let her go. Unfortunately, there was nothing we could do for her but we miss our girl every day.
Also, one morning we found one of our other beautiful cheetahs Adamu not putting his paw down. Again, we went straight to the vet, who told us he must've got his paw stuck somewhere. He ripped a lot of skin off and there was almost nothing left to stitch it back up. He got medication and it took him a few days, but fortunately he recovered completely eventually.
As you can see, your donations make a massive difference in our animals lives. All the staff and animals thank you so much for your continued support!
