Delivery of food and animal utensils

Animal utensils and food for animal shelters since 2001

Every day, animals get into distress - caused by humans, both abroad and in Switzerland. The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation has been working tirelessly for many years to alleviate animal suffering in a sustainable way.

An important part of the work is the distribution of used pet utensils. Whether sleeping and transport baskets, bowls, cloths, blankets, linen, halter, but also food and much more: for many animal protection organisations, supposedly old utensils are valuable things that they simply cannot afford. The material is collected by the foundation, sorted and delivered specifically to needy animal shelters: Around 80 tons of such animal utensils leave our material warehouse every year.

How we help shelter animals

The animal shelter support of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation helps where animal shelters reach their limits: It is part of the daily work of the SUST experts to organize and carry out missions in animal shelters in Switzerland and other countries.

In order to optimise an animal shelter and get it on the road to professional animal welfare, years of cooperation and support are usually necessary. This support can have very different faces: Sometimes the experts of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation organise a whole animal shelter conversion, they give first aid to animals, train specialists and carry out castration and relief actions.

SUSTAINABLE: An animal protection project should not only help here and now, it must also have an effect in the future. For example, in SUST projects in Romania, not only is the situation of shelter and street dogs improved by means of shelter reorganisation, construction measures, food donations and dog kennels, but also castration projects are supported and organised and political negotiations are conducted. This is the only way to improve the situation of the street animals in the long term and to prevent animal suffering in the future.

ACTIVE: Every day we are confronted with animal welfare problems in the media. Many animal lovers are sad or angry when they see pictures and reports of cruelty to animals and animal suffering. Unfortunately, emotions alone are of little help to the affected creature. They need active help. They get this help through the motivated teams of volunteers of the SUST, who are actively working at home and abroad. A large material store with animal utensils and food helps out with bottlenecks in animal shelters and reception centres. The SUST also organises further training courses in which not only theory is taught but also active training is offered.

EFFECTIVE: Animal protection work should not be a drop in the ocean - animal protection must be effective. The many positive feedbacks from animal lovers and animal protection projects, which SUST has supported in the past and the visible successes in the regularly supervised projects confirm the success
