10th SUST charity dog military

A complete success!

For the 10th time, numerous dogs and their owners gathered in Rifferswil on May 20 to participate in the annual SUST charity dog military. In ideal weather conditions for dog-lovers, around 240 teams proved their great skill, knowledge and ability at eight posts on the 8.5 km long course. We are very happy that so many people and dogs found their way to Rifferswil and supported us with their entry fees and donations. The total income of CHF 7'220.00 will be used for various animal protection projects of SUST.

Responsible for the great success were:

All participants and their dogs
