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




Lessie - little dog in big need

Contrary to what many people think, there are many people in Romania who love their animals more than anything else. This is also the case with this elderly woman who, full of panic, reported to the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital in Bucharest. A bigger dog had attacked and injured her little Lessie. The owner was terrified of losing her four-legged friend. Finally, the two elderly ladies made it all the way to the clinic where they received the much needed help. Unfortunately, Lessie's injured eye could not be saved. But the two are incredibly grateful that their journey together did not end on that fateful day. 

And we are equally grateful that thanks to your donations we can save animals from an agonizing death every day. Therefore: Please continue to support us - we can't do it without you!
