The activities of SUST

All over the world, countless animals in overcrowded shelters live sadly or struggle for their survival in wild colonies. Day after day, even today, animals that have become inconvenient are still abandoned, deported or mistakenly kept for lack of better knowledge. The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation contributes with effective means to the fact that animal suffering can be reduced or even prevented sustainably.

This animal welfare work is based on four pillars:

1. Competence Centre Animal Shelter: Animal shelters become high-quality transition stations for homeless animals, where animals are kept and promoted in a way that is appropriate for their species and finally transferred to good new places.

2. Neutering campaigns: Braking the animal misery

3. Education and training of specialists: Specialists are given the opportunity to optimise their knowledge and improve animal welfare.

4. Education of the population: love of animals with heart and mind

These four elements form the important basis for sustainable animal welfare projects.

Those animals that are not yet able to benefit from the effects of this reconstruction work and have been born into a world where they are not wanted need the emergency aid of SUST.

Ramona seeks a godmother/godfather

August 2020

Ramona and her two kittens were admitted to the SUST Animal Orphanage Hospital in Galati, Romania. One of them was so seriously ill that she unfortunately died. The other was lucky and was adopted. Mama Ramona is very friendly and playful and likes people as well as her velvet pawed colleagues.
Since the person who brought Ramona to us has given us false information, we do not know where she originally came from. So Ramona will move into the cat house of the SUST shelter in Galati.
