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 of the SUST in Val de Travers

Last Saturday, a team of SUST animal welfare workers set out to restore the outdoor enclosure for the cats of SOS Chats Noiraigue: For this purpose, berths were reinforced and restored, and unusable material was disposed of. All cat huts were sanded, impregnated with glaze and covered with shingles, so that they can now withstand (almost) any weather again. And as a little extra, an additional catwalk was installed at a lofty height and the climbing castle was extended so that the feline inhabitants can now walk new paths in the old enclosure. We thank all SUST volunteers for their commitment and Tomi and Aurore from SOS Chats for the wonderful preparation!
