|The CCF Clinic Team displaying some of the items donated by Mark C.|
Anne's latest boxes included syringes, catheters, injectable solutions and antiseptics, binoculars, a portable weather station and darts, among other things. She has also sent us general office supplies, books and compasses.
I personally believe that Mark's generosity is contagious. When he approached Thames Medical (UK) to purchase an urgently- needed pulse oximeter, Thames kindly threw in blood pressure equipment at no cost. All these items will make a world of difference when monitoring cheetahs under anaesthesia! And to top it all off, Mark also sent an HP laptop computer.
Also right before the annual cheetah work ups, Debra, from the Anasazi Animal Clinic in Arizona (USA) once again sent us much-needed vaccines, while Gertrude, a pharmacist in Germany, sent us once again an impressive array of clinic supplies.
We are so grateful to Mark, Anne, Debra, Gertrude, and so many other supporters that help us by donating items from our Wish List, which are either hard to get or too expensive in Namibia. These donors either have access to some of these items through their jobs, or approach companies and encourage them to donate, or simply purchase them for us. Some others make cash donations towards specific items on the Wish List.
The CCF's Wish List includes clinic and vet equipment, the Genetics Lab, ecological research, computing equipment, cheetah exercise equipment, and we always accept books. Currently we are in urgent need for GPS collars for cheetahs and tracking collars for our scat detection dogs. If you would like to help by either making a donation toward these items, or obtaining them for us, please click here to visit our Wish List.
With cheetah purrs, and our thanks,
