Work assignements in animal shelters

When animal shelters need help, the SUST is there for them.

While animal shelters and graveyards fight daily for their existence and take care of the complex care of their orphans, it can happen that important points are neglected in their animal shelter everyday life.

Since 2000, the animal shelter support provided by the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation has been helping where animal shelters reach their limits: It is part of the daily work of the SUST experts to carry out days of work in animal shelters in which SUST teams tackle long overdue tasks, modify or supplement animal shelter facilities, reorganise animal shelter procedures, coordinate craftsmen's work (and bear their costs) and deliver animal feed, animal shelter utensils and building materials to animal shelters throughout Switzerland and abroad.

Here, animal welfare workers use their free time, expertise and strength to help homeless animals.



Shelter work day at the parrot farm

On July 25, a team of 20 people, led by Susy Utzinger, lent a hand in the new building of the Parrot Farm animal shelter in Mogelsberg in summery high temperatures.

Together, the animal welfare workers were able to complete an incredible amount of work that day:

- Move dog kennels, pour and build concrete foundation

- transporting and distributing gravel in the parrot outdoor aviaries, hanging and firmly mounting branches

- Transport soil into the rabbit and guinea pig runs, bury hiding tubes

- Build greenhouse as winter shelter for turtles

- Pulling the electric trench

We thank Marcel Jung and his team of the Parrot Farm for the great organization and support and we thank all SUST helpers from the bottom of our hearts for their great commitment:
