Education and Training

Education and training of specialists

The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation's guiding principle is "Let's tackle the root of the problem". In addition to the optimisation of animal shelters and neutering campaigns in Switzerland and many other countries, the training and further education of veterinarians and animal protectionists is an important pillar of this philosophy: The SUST veterinary training courses are known for their quality and efficiency.
 
Animal welfare activists learn elementary principles for the handling and care of animals and for the management of animal shelters, veterinarians are brought up to date with the latest neutering techniques by internationally recognized colleagues and experience new and important things for the implementation of such campaigns.
 
This lays the foundation for further successful neutering campaigns to meet the quality standard demanded by SUST: This means that countless unwanted young animals do not have to be born and suffer in the first place. It has been proven that the overpopulation of dogs and cats can only be contained in the long term and animal-friendly by neutering campaigns.

This is what we have set ourselves the goal of our animal welfare work: the problem is being tackled at the root!

The pillar "basic and advanced training of specialists" includes

- Courses at the SUST Academy
- Veterinary training in different countries

- ERFA events in Switzerland

The courses of the SUST Academy are open for enrolment (German only)

In the SUST seminars, animal welfare workers and other experts learn basic principles for the handling and care of animals and for the management of animal shelters and animal welfare projects. This lays the foundation for further successful animal welfare projects on the quality standard required by SUST: Animal protectors and other specialists tackle animal protection problems not only with a lot of love, but also with a lot of expert knowledge and in this way enable long-term solutions for animal protection problems.

Some of these courses are also open to the public and are offered at reasonable prices (subsidized by the SUST) for pet owners and animal lovers.
