Animal Shelter Support

How shelter animals are helped

During the time animals have to spend in an animal shelter, they are entitled to appropriate accommodation (if possible), veterinary care and professional care. Simple wishes, the fulfilment of which is often complex and expensive.
The reorganization work of the SUST supports many different animal shelters and animal welfare projects at home and abroad and contributes to the fulfilment of these factors. In this way, serious and independent animal welfare organisations can grow out of needy associations, which in the future can help countless animals to a species-appropriate accommodation and a new, good home. In order to optimize an animal shelter and to bring it on the way of the professional animal assistance, usually years of cooperation and company are necessary.
This support can have many different faces: sometimes the experts of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation organise a complete rebuilding of an animal shelter, they provide first aid for animals, train experts and carry out castration and aid campaigns.

In dialogue with the animal welfare activists concerned, the restructuring of animal shelters, advice on setting up and managing animal welfare projects and the further training of experts are addressed.
The area of the pillar "shelter support" includes
- Carrying out of work days in Swiss animal shelters
- Implementation of weeks in foreign animal shelters
- structural change/supplementation of animal shelter facilities
- Reorganization of animal shelter processes
- Coordination and financing of craftsmen's and construction work
- Supply of animal feed
- Delivery of animal shelter equipment (each year 80 - 100 tons of animal utensils leave the SUST warehouse)
- Supply of building materials
- Financing of feed and other material
- Provision of emergency and direct help
- Management of the SUST-material collection action
In many cases, SUST provides direct aid without any third party ever knowing about it. Emergency scenarios and plans are set up in no time at all, experts are dispatched and assistance operations are carried out - in emergencies, the organisation provides fast, unbureaucratic and discreet help. When shelters need help, the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation is there for them.
The activities of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation are financed exclusively by donations and legacies (no public support).
With your donation you help to help shelter animals!



Material collection campaign

Each blanket counts – we collect material for animals

Free your cupboards, basements, garages and attics from all animal material that is no longer needed and make a shelter animal happy!

Often old animal utensils are stored in cellars and attics for years, because the four-legged friend has something new, but the old things are still too good to throw away. They are simple things that are superfluous in many private households. And: Simple things that many animal welfare institutions simply cannot afford.
High-quality materials do not have to end up in the garbage dump, but can still be used very well for animals that have nothing at all! This is precisely why the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation has been collecting for years those animal utensils that animal friends and their fellow animals no longer need: sleeping and transport baskets, dog kennels, horse blankets, horse blankets, bowls, cloths, collars, linen, toys, combs, cat scratch trees and much more.
