Social work

Help for animals of marginalised people

The SUST social work is aimed at animal owners in Switzerland who are affected by poverty: Many marginalised persons have an animal at their side as their only partner, but can hardly afford to support or even provide veterinary care for their four-legged friends. The SUST cooperates with alley works and animal food banks all over Switzerland and supports these animal owners on different levels:

Feed supplies: The SUST supplies animal feed to its partners for free distribution to pet owners affected by poverty.

Veterinary care: The SUST veterinary surgeons regularly visit various locations in Switzerland. During these missions, first aid is provided and animals are treated, vaccinated and dewormed.

Castrations: The SUST assumes the costs for dog and cat castrations with its partner veterinarians.

Material duties: The SUST supplies animal utensils to its partners in Switzerland so that this material can be distributed free of charge to marginalised pet owners.
