Material deliveries of SUST
Animals get into distress daily - caused by humans, abroad as well as in Switzerland. The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation has been working tirelessly for many years to reduce the suffering of animals. An important part of this work is the delivery of second-hand pet utensils.
Whether sleeping and transport baskets, bowls, towels, blankets, leashes, horse halters, but also food and many things more: Supposedly old utensils are still valuable items to many animal welfare organisations - items which they simply cannot afford. The material is collected by the foundation, sorted and delivered to animal shelters in need: Around 80 tons of these animal utensils leave our material warehouse every year.
However, not only these animal utensils change their owners, an infinite amount of expertise also gets exchanged. At each material handover, the conditions in the individual shelters and the status of the various projects are discussed anew. Together, new solutions are sought for and the best way to proceed is discussed.
Negotiations with authorities, ways out of disputes with neighbours, strategies for educating the population, plans for the construction and conversion of animal shelters, the improvement of appropriate animal husbandry, possibilities for lower care and treatment costs, the use of volunteers and lots more are sought for, discussed and fortunately also found in our foundation every day.
