SUST in Romania: Steadily growing success in animal welfare since 2011
Since 2011, the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation has been supporting animal shelters and animal welfare organisations in Romania - and new projects and partner organisations are being added on an ongoing basis. On this map of Romania you can see the animal welfare projects supported by SUST.
Here too, this animal welfare work is based on four pillars:
1. shelter support: help for self-help
SUST plans and implements animal shelter optimisations, finances animal feed, carries out working weeks on site with teams, supplies pallet-wise relief goods (animal equipment), finances and carries out conversions
2. neuterin campaigns: braking the animal misery
Together with its partner projects and veterinarians in Romania, SUST carries out extensive castration activities and finances these operations. In addition, SUST teams in Romania conduct castration weeks.
3. training and further education of skilled workers: the problem is tackled at its roots
Together with its partners, SUST plans, finances and conducts veterinary training and animal welfare seminars in Romania.
4. education of the population: love of animals with heart and mind
The information brochures and children's books of the SUST also exist in Romanian.
These four pillars are based on emergency aid for animals in need: In addition to the SUST animal orphan hospitals in Bucharest and Galati, SUST finances emergency feed supplies and various materials.
