Emergency aid

How animal lifes are saved

Those animals that are not yet able to benefit from the effects of the sustainable SUST development work and have been born into a world where they are not wanted need immediate help.

SUST offers immediate assistance through:
 
- animal rescue operations
- Social work in Switzerland
- Financing of all livestock rescue services of the Swiss Large Animal Rescue Service
- Laying hens actions (switching of "out-of-date" laying hens)
- organisation, implementation and/or financing of emergency plans and operations
- Work horse treatments
- First aid and veterinary interventions
 
and through the

SUST Orphan Animal Hospitals (SUST)

In many countries countless abandoned animals live on the streets. Many of these dogs and cats have been abandoned or have already been born as strays. Life on the street is dangerous and full of privation. Injured and sick animals usually have no chance of surviving and die mostly painfully and alone on the street. In such cases, there is often not a lack of willingness to help animal-loving people, but a lack of financial means to have street animals treated by a veterinarian.
 
To help these animals in need, the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation set up the SUST Orphan Animal Hospitals.
 
There are currently one of these institutions in
 
Galati, Romania
Bucharest, Romania
Budapest, Hungary
Hurghada, Egypt
Bello Horizonte, Peru
 
Ever since its opening, animals that have been injured or ill are admitted daily to the SUST Orphan Animal Hospitals, where they are cared for and treated professionally. If the animals are healthy and strong enough to survive on the streets after their recovery, they will be released back to their territory. Special patients with special needs will be accommodated in animal shelters if possible. Fortunately, it is also possible to find new life places for patients on an ongoing basis.
 
The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation finances the veterinary costs, clinic equipment, medicines, operations, therapies, food and care in the animal orphan hospitals. Often, SUST also finances the construction of the corresponding clinic.
 
The activities of the Susy Utzinger Foundation for Animal Welfare are financed exclusively by donations and legacies (no public support).

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.
