Animal Welfare Volunteers

 

The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation is active all the time: with professional planning and exciting work on site, it supports and promotes animal shelters at home and abroad. This animal welfare work is mainly made possible by donations and legacies. An elementary and indispensable part is also the free cooperation of experts.

The SUST's teams have a big heart for animals, an enormous amount of expertise and experience in the field of animal welfare and an unlimited willingness to work: animal suffering, dirt, working under extreme conditions and possibly also injuries are part of the everyday life of such missions.

Are you interested in volunteering at SUST?

Inexperienced helpers accompany us on working days in Switzerland. During these working days (on weekends, 1-2 days in each case) these volunteers mainly do work for which the shelter staff cannot find time apart from the day-to-day business. Often, this work involves cleaning, conversion or maintenance work. The direct work on the animal is left to the experts present. These working days provide a good opportunity to get to know each other and the way SUST works.  

If the volunteers are interested, qualified and committed, there is also the possibility to participate in animal welfare missions abroad. This approach has proven its worth so far, because it is of great importance to us to get the best out of the ever tight schedule in our foreign missions, and this is only possible if a team harmonizes perfectly and has the necessary expertise.

If you are interested, please send us an e-mail or call us: 052 202 69 69 69.

In my spare time I support the actions and missions of the SUST with my specialist knowledge, because animals have always been my greatest passion. For this reason I use myself in my spare time for animals. SUST is committed to animal welfare at home and abroad in an extremely efficient, targeted and sustainable manner. It makes me very happy to be able to contribute my little contribution to the activities of SUST.

Animals have always been part of my life and play a central role in it. Every animal deserves our respect and dignity. This is the responsibility of each individual - but unfortunately, it is not lived by every individual. That is why we need organisations such as the SUST, whose enormous, untiring commitment I admire. I also want to make my contribution to save the animals from suffering and give them joy.

Missions are excellently assessed, organised and accompanied on site. With relatively little means and time for it with much commitment, motivation and commitment can achieve a lot for improved living and keeping conditions of animals. The people affected are also included. The results are visible in the evening. Great camaraderie and good mood. In the evening weary, sweaty, dirty but totally content and happy. in short: Susy, I find totally super and I like to come and feel good. Thank you and the team in the background. Especially that you think of everything. Incl. coffee machine, catering, tools, accommodation etc. Special thanks also for your thank-you notes, short reports and photo CDs. But in the evening it was different. Otherwise I wouldn't have come.

If you help animals, you will get back more than you can ever expect from a human being. I came upon the dog in a training course. I was overwhelmed to see what they were capable of. What I like about SUST is that I am impressed by its professionalism and commitment. The set goals are achieved.

Animals are a part of my life and mean everything to me. They give us so much, that's why it is such a big affair for me to support them. It is nice to be able to help, feel and see what we can contribute with our own efforts for a better world for animals in need of urgent help. Every assignment gives new energy when we end up in grateful and happy eyes of animals and also the people who looked after and saved them, as well as new courage, motivation and strength for the next assignment and many new projects - we are a great team which pursues the same goal -> "everything for the benefit of the animal". We can achieve a lot with our combined efforts and with every effort we learn a lot of new things. I am very grateful and proud to be part of the SUST team. "SUST tackles the roots" is its motto and the foundation lives up to it. With the important 4 pillars, animal shelter support, castration actions, education and further education of the population, the foundation is super-organized and achieves marvellous and sustainable achievements in Switzerland and abroad in its many years of experience, as one can or may witness publicly or participate in the self participation.

SUST is a professionally managed, transparent organization that works objectively and efficiently. The core activities of emergency aid, shelter support, neutering, training of professionals and public information have been chosen correctly. Very important: Although financed by donations, it doesn't play one's heart strings. I appreciate the fact that I am not only able to participate financially, but also with my work and assistance. Thanks to the many opportunities for further training, I am able to expand my specialist knowledge on an ongoing basis.
