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.

Support of hedgehog stations

Help for hedgehog stations from the animal welfare storage of the SUST

The hedgehog is a protected wild animal in Switzerland. Many of these animals are in need when they have been injured (by scythes, cars, animals, etc.), young animals need help when their mother has been killed and many weakened animals need support during the winter months. Hedgehog stations do a great job for these animals: These important stations are often run by private animal lovers at their own expense. They care for hedgehogs in need of help, provide them with care during the winter months, give advice by telephone and contribute a great deal to environmental education.

Many different stations in Switzerland regularly receive feed and consumables from SUST.
