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.



Materials collection campaign for animals in need with great results

December 2017

Kollbrunn, 5 December 2017 - A further chapter in the success story for animals in need has been written: For the fifth time, the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation, in cooperation with the pet shop Qualipet, has carried out a nationwide campaign for homeless animals. Once again, a pleasing amount of material was collected.

For the celebration of the World Animal Day, used pet articles could be handed in again this year in all Qualipet branches for the benefit of the SUST: blankets, baskets, linen, feeding bowls, cat toilets and much more brought over animal friends from all over the country. Utensils, which have become superfluous in some pet owners' homes, but which are urgently needed elsewhere. Thanks to the many donations from animal lovers, 200 pallets filled to the brim were collected.

Hardworking SUST helpers have been sorting, cleaning and disinfecting for days. Approximately 50% of the pallets, which are packed with livestock, go to Swiss animal shelters. The rest is for the benefit of foreign needy and distressed organisations and their animals. Just in time for the cold season, a large part of the mail has already been delivered. The additional winter clothing collection campaign was also a great success and will give many animal keepers great pleasure.
