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.

In the right place at the right time

July 2021

Luck of the draw - On the way back from a castration action in Giurgiu, our ambulance driver definitely proved his driving skills: On a four-lane highway, a dog ran into the middle of the road and in front of the vehicle. Only with a bold maneuver the driver managed to avoid the dog and bring the ambulance to a stop - human and animal unharmed.

Fortunately, the dog was not quite so frightened by the incident, but let himself be touched and examined without any problems. Since he is neither chipped nor neutered, we brought him to OAH-Bucharest, where we will vaccinate, chipped and of course neuter him.

Now we hope that this dear guy will find a good new home soon! Until then, of course, he can stay with us, where he will be provided with everything he needs.
