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.

Offer for school classes from cycle 1 to 3 (from 2nd grade)

Many children have a natural curiosity about animals. But not all of them grow up in an environment where they learn to respect animals and treat them with respect. So it is not surprising that even today "animal welfare" is still a foreign word for many children.

In order to sensitize school children to this comprehensive topic, a SUST teacher (primary school teacher / therapeutic school teacher) visits school classes from cycle 1 to 3 (from 2nd grade) on request and reports on the everyday life of the Susy Utzinger Foundation and its far-reaching and sustainable animal welfare work in a child-friendly way with numerous pictures and videos.

This encourages children to think for themselves, draw adequate conclusions and take meaningful steps for the benefit of the animal. These visits are free of charge for schools.

If desired, the teacher can be accompanied by a trained therapy dog.
