Guard dog for a month
Cheetah Conservation Fund
The Livestock Guarding Dog Programme is one of CCF's most successful programmes. The CCF breeds and places Kangal Anatolian puppies, free, with commercial and communal farmers throughout Namibia to protect their herds from predators.
Since 1994, CCF has placed over 260 livestock guarding dogs. The puppies bond with their herds and protect the herds from predators. Most farmers with these dogs from CCF report dramatic reductions of livestock losses due to cheetahs and other predators. In turn, this helps the farmers implement improved livestock management techniques and encourages the farmers to co-exist with cheetahs instead of removing cheetahs from farmland. CCF currently breeds, cares for and places about 30 puppies a year. Your $50 donation will assist CCF in covering one month of caring for and raising these working dogs. Each dog costs CCF over $500 a year in care. These costs include food, vaccinations, new-owner support, veterinary care and long-term monitoring. This gift will feed a guard dog for one month.
