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.

SUST veterinary consultation hour in Biel

The SUST veterinarians in Biel/Bienne are regularly on site and treat animals from marginalised people.Again today they castrated, vaccinated, dewormed, cleaned ears, cut claws, passed on a lot of expert knowledge and distributed one, two or more treats.  We would like to thank the "Kirchliche Gassenarbeit Biel" as well as our SUST veterinarians Bruno Lötscher and Linda Anderegg from the Bruno Lötscher veterinary practice in Brienz for their excellent cooperation.

In order for us to continue the so urgently needed project Social Work for Animals, we need your support: Please help so that we can help!
