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.

SUST Castration Campaign in Romania

August 2021

The SUST castration campaigns in Romania - Two successful castration campaigns are just behind us: Within two days, our veterinarians were able to castrate 35 dogs and 40 cats in Cernovada and 35 dogs and 28 cats in Luduș! So it's really going on - until today we could perform 5'378 castrations in Romania and thus sustainably reduce the overpopulation of street animals in these areas! We thank you very much for your support! Without you, this would simply not be possible.
