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.



SUST Animal Orphans Hospital Galati

The SUST employees of the Galati district in Romania were just trying to relax and enjoy the day of work when they discovered this abandoned puppy in a village.
With all the fast traffic we were the only hope for the little bitch. When we managed to catch her, we noticed how thin she was. She was full of parasites and immediately started vomiting worms, which led us to realize that she must have eaten dead animals that she found on the roadside.
Now she is safe, has been dewormed and has already received her first vaccination in our animal orphan hospital. The next step is to find her a real home that she really deserves. 
With your valuable support, we can offer these life-saving opportunities to animals in need. Little Biggi - her new name - is very grateful for your support.

The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation finances veterinary costs, clinic equipment, medication, operations, therapies, food and care in the five animal orphan hospitals.
