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.

The SUST in Spain

Steadily growing animal welfare success since 2001

The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation has been supporting animal shelters and animal welfare organisations in Spain since 2001 - and new projects and partner animal shelters are constantly being added. On this map of Spain you can see the animal protection projects supported by the SUST.

Also here, the animal welfare work is based on four pillars:

1. Animal shelter support: help for self-help

SUST plans and carries out animal shelter optimizations, finances animal feed, carries out working weeks, supplies relief supplies (animal utensils) on pallets, finances and carries out conversions.

2. Castration actions: Braking the animal misery

Together with its partner projects and veterinarians in Spain, SUST carries out and finances extensive castration operations.

3. Training and educating professionals: The problem is tackled at its root

Together with its partners, SUST plans and conducts veterinary training courses and animal welfare seminars in Spain.

4. Education of the population: Animal love with heart and mind

The SUST information brochures, children's books and poster campaigns are also available in Spanish.

These four pillars are based on emergency aid for animals in need: The SUST finances emergency feed supplies and various materials in emergency situations.
