Adopt a Cheetah

By adopting a cheetah today, you will make a real contribution to the care of our cheetahs at the zoo, and our vital work for wildlife across the world.

Our adoption packs make a fantastic gift for animal lovers of all ages. Prices start from as little as £35 per year, with three different packs to choose from.

This impressive big cat is the world’s fastest land mammal, reaching a top speed of around 70mph in just three seconds! But as cheetahs are listed as a Vulnerable species, we do not want them racing towards extinction…

Our cheetahs, Kitwana and Jahzara, are great ambassadors for their species and are also part of the EAZA ex-situ breeding programme (EEP) for cheetahs within zoos.


How do I adopt a cheetah?

First choose the adoption package that you wish to purchase online from the options below and then go on make your animal selection.

Adoptions apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because some of our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes. If your adopted species moves, we will advise you and you will be given the opportunity to transfer your adoption to another species.

Please note that our adoption gift packs are only available for UK delivery.
