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




A new case at the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital Galati, Romania

This sweet puppy must have suffered from unimaginable agony. Fortunately, she was found in time by a dear woman. Since she lacks the financial means for a veterinarian, she brought the puppy girl to us in the animal orphanage hospital. The little girl was severely dehydrated and weakened upon arrival. After immediate first aid treatment, it unfortunately turned out that her little leg could not be saved and our team had to amputate it.

Nevertheless, the young dog can now recover in peace with us - thanks to your support we can provide tireless efforts in such cases - thank you very much!
