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.



Working day at the animal sanctuary Luna

On 4 July, an 18-strong animal welfare team under the leadership of SUST leader Corinne Meister completed various tasks at the sanctuary.

✔ Floor for outdoor aviaries
✔ Laying stone slabs at the beehive
✔ Finishing the floor in the feed chamber
✔ Muck out all stables and set up fresh
✔ Remove nettles from the surroundings
✔ Remove stones from the dog meadow
✔ Dunging and new bedding of the goat park
✔ Sanding and priming the carriage

It was a terrific effort with many motivated animal welfare workers.

Many thanks to Karin, Andi, Rebecca, Claudia, Tanja, Andrea, Bettina, Corinne, Cornelia, Nadja, Audrey, Fabienne, Mario, Amanda, Barbara and Mirjam for this great effort
