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.

Crowdfunding for the SUST Shelter in Galati, Romania

After five successful years in which the SUST shelter in Galati, Romania, provided protection, care and shelter for many hundreds of animals, the constant workload has left its mark on the facility.

During the cold winter months, it is important to provide our protégés with the necessary thermal protection. In addition to new radiators for the heating system, we need new dog houses for the outside area, in which the canine residents can retreat without freezing.

For this reason we have created the following crowdfunding:


Many thanks in advance for your valuable support, with which we hope to fulfill as many wishes as possible.
