Animal shelter sponsorship programs

A sponsorship helps the entire animal shelter

A good animal shelter is enormously important for animal welfare work. In order to provide good care for animals until they are moved to a new place, however, a lot more is needed: The care by animal keepers, electricity, water, heating as well as the daily food for the animals cost money. These expenses are financed by animal shelter sponsorships in the new SUST animal shelter "Help Labus" in Galati, Romania and the animal shelter Bluemoon Animal Center in Hurghada, Egypt. Who takes over an animal home sponsorship, finances thereby its life in the animal home representative of an animal.

If you decide to support the shelter with an animal shelter sponsorship, you can choose a animal on behalf from this shelter. Thus...
... you will receive news about your animal twice a year
... you will be officially appointed sponsor for the animal you support and will be mentioned on our Facebook page.
... you will receive a diploma for your good deed

What do you have to do to become a sponsor?
It's easy: Look at our photos on our two sponsorship pages on Facebook of the SUST-animal shelter Galati, Romania and the website* of the animal shelter in the SUST-OAH Bukarest, Romania, read the stories about the individual animals, fall in love and send us the link of your animal of choice by private message or by e-mail to with your complete address.

How much does a sponsorship cost?

SUST-OAH Bukarest, Romania:
A sponsorship costs 50 francs per month for a dog and 40 francs for a cat. You can choose to pay the contribution monthly or annually.

Of course, your sponsor animal will also be happy to receive additional gifts such as food and water bowls, toys, beds, a personalised dog house, etc.

Project-related sponsorship
It is also possible to take over a sponsorship for the respective animal shelter. This will cover costs for construction, repairs, materials and much more. The costs for an animal shelter sponsorship amount to € / CHF 20 per month.

How is the money managed?
The sponsorship contributions are transferred to two specific Swiss accounts of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation and can be deducted from taxes as a donation. All donations from sponsorships exclusively benefit the animals in the respective animal shelter.

If you decide to support these sponsorship programmes, you will not only help one animal, but also the two shelters to keep themselves and their hundreds of animals afloat. For this we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

April 2024

No day passes without emergencies in our animal orphanage in Galati, Romania. Puppies are even less able to assess potential dangers on the streets than their street-wise adult counterparts. That's why this little fellow fell victim to a car accident. He was brought to us by the local police and, of course, can no longer return to the street, which is why he will stay with us in the shelter. He suffered a pelvic fracture, which was treated at our animal orphanage.

With a starter sponsorship of CHF 100, you can contribute to the costs incurred by the treatment. As a token of appreciation, the starter sponsor receives a beautiful certificate and 1000 karma points. Additionally, the starter sponsor can also come up with a suitable name for the little one.
