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.

Window: a cat trap

September 2021

A sad topic that is particularly relevant in autumn: Tilted windows are deadly cat traps!

Tilted windows tempt cats to want to climb outside. In doing so, the cats often slip on the slippery window frame and are unable to drag their hind legs. The animals panic and the more they kick and try to free themselves, the more they are pushed into the narrow crevice by their own body weight - these accidents are incredibly painful for the animals and often end fatally.

If you can't do without tilted windows, you should get special barrier grids from your local pet store or "defuse" the tilt window gap with a thick terry cloth tucked in (the cloth should still light down on both sides of the window angle).

Here you can order the brochure "Caution cat trap" of the Susy Utzinger Foundation for Animal Welfare free of charge: https://www.susyutzinger.ch/Shop (available in German only)
