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-animal shelter in Galati, Romania:

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.

February 2024

Recently, a rather special animal found its way to our animal orphan hospital in Galati, Romania. Namely a unicorn! You don't believe it? Then take a closer
take a closer look!
The poor thing was probably separated from her herd at some point and then chased by stray dogs. Because she was unable to flee so quickly due to an older injury to one of her claws, she would certainly have soon become prey. We wanted to spare her this fate, which is why she is now with us. She has been warmly welcomed by everyone and our other goat "Bebelusa" is delighted to finally no longer be the only lady in the herd with a chin beard!
With a one-off donation of CHF 100, the starting sponsor Sharon S. has contributed to the costs incurred to properly register, vaccinate, worm and treat our "unicorn" against ectoparasites. Part of the amount also covered the extra portion of hay that the black beauty is currently eating to get a little more weight on her ribs.
As a thank you, the starting sponsor received a nice certificate and was also allowed to think of a suitable name for her starting sponsored animal.
