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




Daily Work at The SUST Animal Orphan Hospital Bucharest

Another day in the big city - too big for such small animals that were separated from their mothers much too early because they had the misfortune to be born unwanted. For irresponsible people it is too much of an effort to have their cat neutered for free, and they get rid of the baby until the next unwanted litter. These poor babies end up on the street where they are exposed to all sorts of dangers, such as fatal diseases, being hit by cars or bitten by dogs, suffering from hunger or being eaten alive by parasites; most of them do not even survive to the age of 6 months. Those who manage will soon have babies themselves and share the sad fate of their mothers.
Here at SUST OAH Bucharest we do not ask about the background of the animal, its pedigree, the profession of the keeper or its social status. We just look and do what is necessary to save these animals' lives. We are not superheroes, but we do our best; when we don't know something, we look for answers, when we can't, we ask for help, but we ALWAYS care!

Please join our daily struggle and support our cause! Decide to be part of the solution and become active today! In the fight for survival of these animals every minute counts.
