Sponsor a Cheetah!

*Due to popularity, some animals may have more than one sponsor. All sponsored animals remain in the care of the Phoenix Zoo and no ownership rights are conferred. Because Zoo animals are living creatures, they are subject to illness or death, or they may be moved from the Zoo or taken off exhibit. If this happens, the remainder of your sponsorship will be transferred to another animal.
