Slowing down the animal misery: SUST is tackling it sustainably

Hundreds of thousands of street dogs and cats fight for survival in many countries, countless of them are trapped and many of them vegetate in terrible conditions, while new unwanted offspring are constantly being born. The suffering of unwelcome dogs and cats is endless in many countries.
Neutering is the only way to reduce the overpopulation of street animals in a long-term and animal-friendly way. Thousands of dogs, cats and other animals have already been operated on by the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation in various countries. This measure has prevented countless unwanted offspring from being born. Such actions have a future: no more emaciated mothers on the streets, no more famine and no more sexually transmitted diseases, in which the animals die miserably.
If the number of street animals is reduced, no more cruelty to animals will be tackled: no more poisoning, no more slaughtered animals, no more shooting. In this way the animal misery is slowed down, slowly but steadily and sustainably.
The area of the pillar "neutering campaigns" includes:
- Collaboration with veterinarians all over Switzerland for cat neutering campaigns
- takeover of the neutering costs of stocks from farms and feral groups
- Rental of cat and dog traps
- Brochure "Cat neutering = active animal protection
- informing the population about this topic by posters and leaflets
- Discussions with authorities and politicians
- Training and further training of specialized personnel for the execution of neutering campaigns
- Implementation of neutering weeks in various countries by SUST teams
- Financing of neutering campaigns in different countries
The activities of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation are financed exclusively by donations and legacies (no public support).
Donate for the spay/neuter campaigns of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation
These many operations are very effective, but cost a lot of money and therefore we need your help and support: Give hope and instead of the usual gifts, give one (or more) animal (s) the hope for a better life! A neutering gives an animal many advantages and does no longer contribute to the overpopulation of unwanted animals.

Veterinarian Training in Budapest, Hungary

October 2017

With the leadership of the disciples of the world-famous surgeon, Jeffrey Young a „Dog and cat neutering workshop” has been organised by the Swiss Susy Utzinger Stiftung für Tierschutz, and the Rex kutyaotthon alapítvány on 15th of October, in Hungary.

The Hungarian training for vets was organized for the 6th time by the Swiss Susy Utzinger Foundation in collaboration with the local Rex Foundation. The organizers also received essential instruments and medicines from the Worldwide Veterinary Service (WVS) that contributed significantly to the success of the training.

The workshop provided a complex theoretic and technical overview of population control of dogs and cats. During the morning presentation Dr. Péter Kiraly spoke about the veterinary and animal welfare aspects of the overpopulation of dogs and cats, that is a world-wide problem. He highlighted that euthanasia cannot be a tool for population control, and the only efficient solution to handle this situation is neutering. The second speaker Dr. Balazs Bence introduced the latest surgical techniques with the help of slides and tutorial videos. The participating vets -who came from all over the Country- could actively join in the surgical practice, and could peer into the alternative methods like „early age” operations. The organizers are committed followers of pre-pubertal neutering, which technical knacks were shared with the participants in theory and in practice, too. During the surgical workshop in the afternoon the collegaues could make themselves certain of the fact, that the operations can be carried out even at the age of 4 weeks with complete safety. Moreover -after obtaining some routine- prepubertal neutering has several advantages through the significant reduction of surgery complications, costs, length of time, etc.

21 dogs and cats of different ages has been neutered during the professionally organized surgical workshop in the afternoon. The surgeries were conducted by 3 skilful surgeons paralelly at three operation tables.

According to the unanimous feedbacks of the participants, the workshop proved to be particularly useful.
