SUST Material collection campaign

Collection of used animal utensils

The material collection campaign launched by the SUST in 2001 is a complete success: countless animal lovers clear their cellars and attics and send their no longer needed material or even deliver it personally. This stunning commitment of the Swiss animal lovers made it possible for many animal shelters in Switzerland and abroad to celebrate a little Christmas throughout the year.

In the past years the material collection of the SUST has grown continuously and has become a valuable instrument for our active animal protection work.

This also includes the special campaigns in cooperation with Qualipet: Once a year during three weeks in September / October, animal owners can hand in their no longer needed animal utensils in all Qualipet branches in Switzerland. Qualipet organises pallets and delivery boxes, prints posters and flyers. When it comes to sorting, disinfecting and repackaging the pallets, we can count on the support of our voluntary animal welfare helpers, some of whom sacrifice several days of their free time. An unequalled action, which is only possible thanks to many motivated animal friends!
