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.

Emergency aid as a basis for sustainable animal welfare projects: saving lives of animals




At the beginning of February 2021, the Large Animal Rescue Service CH / FL had to go out for another spectacular rescue

A escaped cow ran away from its stable for several kilometers and collided with a car while crossing a road. Full of fear, it then fled into the garden of a villa bordering the lake. In order to prevent the cow from running further, it first had to be anesthetized using an anesthetic gun. It was then lifted by a 20-meter crane in a gentle recovery harness into a transport trailer, where it was examined by a veterinarian. Amazingly, the animal suffered only minor injuries from its great adventure and was able to return safely to its stable.

While most equine emergencies are covered by insurance or private funding from their owners, the costs incurred in rescuing livestock often present financial problems for the farmers involved. To ensure that these important interventions are nevertheless carried out, the SUST, together with the GTRD ("Large Animal Rescue Service"), runs the campaign "Even farm animals deserve professional rescues" and for years the SUST has financed the uncovered costs of rescues of livestock.
