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.

Cat spaying campaigns in Portugal

May 2018

Soon the next 100 cats will have been spayed in Portugal, in cooperation with our partner ARPA. A huge success for the local animal protection activists, where cats can breed thanks to the ideal climate and only a few neuterings can be financed.

Spayed cats are better off in every way:

- They do not give birth to unwanted kittens, which are then often "disposed of" in a cruel manner or have a dangerous future as strays.
- They do not have to suffer the strains of giving birth and are therefore healthier and more resistant.
- They do not have to fight for the survival of their kittens under dramatic circumstances and at the risk of their own lives.
- They are more tolerated by the people and are less often driven away or killed.
- They do not suffer from sexually transmitted diseases.


Support this important work with a donation or spaying vouchers. You can order these in our webshop https://www.susyutzinger.ch/Shop.
