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.

Animal welfare case in Hungary

June 2018

Victims of misconceived animal love: 58 cats were kept as pets by a woman in her dilapidated house without electricity. The cats were barely fed, lived in faeces and urine, fell ill and of course were not spayed. The SUST financed an immediate emergency food supply as well as the spaying and the treatment of the sick cats. Two SUST partner animal shelters have already taken in some of these cats and will place them. For the cats who still have to remain in the rundown house, the situation was made as pleasant as possible: The rooms have been cleaned and disinfected, the cats are being fed daily and thanks to a material supply of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation they can now also sleep in clean beds and eat from clean bowls.
