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.

I am number 1000!

This is the thousandth cat that has been neutered this year in Portugal as part of the SUST neutering project!

Also in Portugal the misery of the street cats is big. Only through extensive castrations can the animal suffering be contained. With this tigerli, this year there are already 1'000 animals that will not give birth to any more unwanted kittens, which also have to lead a dangerous and deprived life on the streets.

We owe this great success to our wonderful partner veterinarians in Portugal but of course also to your generous support!

Please keep on donating, then we might break the 2'000 mark this year!
