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.

Rescue at the last minute

July 2021

This German Shepherd mix lady was hit by a car and was lucky enough to be found in time by an animal loving man and brought to us. We immediately performed emergency surgery on her. The operation was long and complicated, but finally it went well. The little one will need some time until she stands on her legs again. But she has a happy ending: Her rescuer has already taken her so much to his heart that he will adopt her! So as soon as she is recovered, she can move to her new home and get away from the streets of Romania. Of course she will be neutered before she moves.
