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.

Double luck for "Margelatu"

SUST Castration Campaign

During a SUST castration campaign on the Black Sea in Romania, a helper caught the eye of a chained dog with several large, spherical tumors hanging from his neck. He was spontaneously given the name "Margelatu", which means "the one with the pearls (balls)". At the sight of him, our team did not hesitate for long and convinced his owner to let them have "Margelatu". What a double happiness for the poor animal: in addition to his necklace, he finally got rid of the annoying and heavy burden on his neck during an operation at the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital in Bucharest. Even if the decision from the laboratory, where the tumors are tested, should be a bad one, he can still spend his remaining time in dignity.

We are incredibly grateful that we can make the world a better place with your help for animals like "Margelatu".
