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




Abandoned like trash

Beside a few garbage cans in the city of Galati (Romania) these two puppies were abandoned. For the bright male dog our help unfortunately came too late. The little puppy girl sat next to him. The sight broke our heart.

Someone from the team of the SUST Animal Orphans Hospital Galati had found the two. Probably they had been exposed to the blazing sun all day - the little bitch was extremely dehydrated.

Of course we did everything to save at least her. A good news is that we tested them negative for parvovirus and distemper.

The little one owes her life to the SUST Animal Orphans Hospital - and therefore to you. Without you, we would not exist. Thank you!!!
