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.

Emergency aid as a basis for sustainable animal welfare projects: saving lives of animals




This huge ball of fur came to our clinic from the city of Braila.

His owner, an elderly woman, had not seen him for days. When he reappeared, he had an abscess on his face and a high fever due to the infection. Fortunately, a nice woman nearby, an old OAH client, offered to bring him to us.

The first days he didn't even want to look at us, poor fuzzy! But after treatment, a free neutering and full recovery, he made friends, especially with our veterinary nurse who specializes in cats. Even though his facial expression seems to say otherwise, he was delighted to be in her presence.

Thank you to everyone who supports our OAH projects! He had a place to get well and receive free medical care because of your help.
