CCF:  Things are getting worse at CCF. The first temporary facility they built for the seized cheetah cubs is already at max capacity with more cheetahs arriving. 12 cubs just arrived and like the rest they were so malnourished that only 2 of them survived.  The reports we’ve been getting are heartbreaking and enraging. Dr Marker is now building a second temporary housing facility in Somaliland to handle the influx of cheetahs in need.  She wishes we could get there faster. The safe house that was purchased for interns and volunteers is also full of critical care kittens.  Now the volunteers and interns must stay at the hotel. We definitely feel her pain when you do not have the funds or resources to help these magnificent animals.
