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- Laying hens actions (switching of "out-of-date" laying hens)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).

Rabies vaccinations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

In 2017, SUST once again supported the urgently needed rabies vaccinations in the Virunga National Park.

3004 dogs and 510 cats were vaccinated thanks to the contributions of SUST. These vaccinations are crucial: Rabies cases lead to killing campaigns of dogs and cats for fear of infecting humans.

With the vehicle that SUST financed some years ago, remote villages are easily accessible. In addition, the vehicle often serves as a temporary clinic if there are no locations for treatment.

The educational materials supplied by SUST also enable African animal welfare workers to educate the population about endo- and ectoparasites and thus prevent further zoonoses (and of course improve the health of animals and their owners).
