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 deployment in Galaţi, Romania

June 2019

During the SUST week in Galaţi, a large team of SUST volunteers will be helping out: Care and cleaning work for the animals (dogs, cats, donkeys, sheep, goats) is done and several hundred animals are dewormed and treated against ectoparasites. In addition, the animal welfare professionals also find time to look after individual animals, to play, cuddle, brush and care for them and to socialise the youngest ones in the puppy station.

The projects of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation are sustainable and help animals and humans directly on the spot!

Simultaneously to the animal shelter work also a further castration week takes place: During the whole week three experienced SUST veterinarians castrate dogs and cats. A large team of helpers is needed to ensure that this works smoothly and that many animals can be operated on every day.
