The activities of SUST

All over the world, countless animals in overcrowded shelters live sadly or struggle for their survival in wild colonies. Day after day, even today, animals that have become inconvenient are still abandoned, deported or mistakenly kept for lack of better knowledge. The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation contributes with effective means to the fact that animal suffering can be reduced or even prevented sustainably.

This animal welfare work is based on four pillars:

1. Competence Centre Animal Shelter: Animal shelters become high-quality transition stations for homeless animals, where animals are kept and promoted in a way that is appropriate for their species and finally transferred to good new places.

2. Neutering campaigns: Braking the animal misery

3. Education and training of specialists: Specialists are given the opportunity to optimise their knowledge and improve animal welfare.

4. Education of the population: love of animals with heart and mind

These four elements form the important basis for sustainable animal welfare projects.

Those animals that are not yet able to benefit from the effects of this reconstruction work and have been born into a world where they are not wanted need the emergency aid of SUST.

SUST working day at the cat sanctuary "Schnurrli" in Sternenberg

April 28 2018

Under the watchful eyes of the feline inhabitants, a large team of SUST volunteers accomplished a great working day yesterday: In perfect weather conditions, hedges were cut back, weeds removed, fences were searched for holes, the lawn of the entire inner enclosure was mowed, all material was taken from the tool shed and the material shed and sorted, the floor and the roof of the tool shed were newly made, the material house was cleaned with a high pressure cleaner and made mouse safe, shelves were set up and therefore food, litter, traps and lots got put away in a more structured way, sandboxes were renovated and newly built, and all cat houses got cleaned, disinfected and newly furnished. And of course the cuddling with the pussycats didn't get neglected either! mäusesicher gemacht, Regale aufgebaut und Futter, Streu, Fallen und vieles mehr wieder strukturiert eingeräumt, Sandkästen renoviert, neue Sandkästen gebaut und alle Katzenhäuschen gereinigt, desinfiziert und neu eingerichtet. Und selbstverständlich kam auch das Schmusen mit den Büsi nicht kurz.

A tremendous achievement, which is only possible thanks to our super motivated volunteers and also due to the great organization of the people who are responsible for the cat sanctuary.

We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your great commitment!
