Learn More About Each Rescued Cheetah Here at the Sanctuary - Including Each Rescue Story.

The Wild Animal Sanctuary-Texas currently houses 1 Cheetah that was retired as a SSP (Species Survival Plan) animal from a nearby zoo. Following each rescue operation, our Cheetahs are provided with individualized medical and rehabilitation care. Each Cheetah is giving as much time as needed to adjust to their new home prior to be released into large acreage habitats - providing them with a forever home.

Did you know Cheetahs can accelerate from 0 to 68 miles per hour in just three seconds and are the only big cat that can turn in mid-air while sprinting? They are often associated with traits of speed, acceleration, and flexibility.

One of the most wonderful ways to help our Animals is through our Adoption Program. It's also a great personalized gift for a family member or friend, showing you care in the most meaningful way...
