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).

The SUST in Hungary

Steadily growing anmial welfare success since 2002

The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation has been supporting animal shelters and animal welfare organisations in Hungary since 2002 - and new projects and partner animal shelters are constantly being added. On this map of Hungary you can see the animal protection projects supported by the SUST.

Also here, the animal welfare work is based on four pillars:

1. Animal shelter support: help for self-help

SUST plans and carries out animal shelter optimizations, finances animal feed, carries out working weeks, supplies relief supplies (animal utensils) on pallets, finances and carries out conversions.

2. Castration actions: Braking the animal misery

Together with its partner projects and veterinarians in Spain, SUST carries out and finances extensive castration operations.

3. Training and educating professionals: The problem is tackled at its root

Together with its partners, SUST plans and conducts veterinary training courses and animal welfare seminars in Spain.

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


The SUST information brochures, children's books and poster campaigns are also available in Hungarian.

These four pillars are based on emergency aid for animals in need: The SUST not only finances the animal orphan hospital in Budapest, but also emergency feed supplies and various materials in emergency situations.
