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.

Dog baby survives after fire

SUST Orphan Animals Hospital in Galati, Romania

day this went up in flames. The child of the family ended up in the hospital with severe burns and the puppy was left behind.

The local NGO "Help Labus" and the fire department rescued the puppy and brought it to us at OAH.

Here the fight for the young dog's life began. She had to be put under oxygen, her lungs and airways were damaged, her face and body burned. Very intensive care began, we watched her closely around the clock, she was in pain and for a very long time it was not clear if she would make it.

But she made it! Today she is doing well, she has even found a new home and just has to wait a little bit for her papers.

That she survived was a miracle. It is thanks to your support that we were able to treat her at a high professional level and had the oxygen machine. That was crucial for her. Thank you all so much!
