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.

The miracles of the SUST Animal Orphans Hospital Galaţi, Romania

A christmas tale, No. 23

It is the time of year when we celebrate the feasts of love and joy - we at the SUST Animal Orphans Hospital in Galaţi, Romania make sure that we carry the love and joy in our hearts the whole year through.

We called him Ursulet; a sweet old giant who was brutally shot in a village near Galaţi. He was in terrible shape when he came to us at the Animal Orphan Hospital. Everyone who saw him, including our social media subscribers, hoped that he would recover. Although the gunshot wound had caused great damage to his body, he maintained his great character. He lost an eye and a leg...and we had to spend hours removing bullet residue from his body. His condition was critical and he was slow to recover. During the whole time we were there for him and we always wonder why such bad things have to happen to these good souls.

It seems to be a miracle that Ursulet made it. We are very happy about this and grateful that we can count on your support.

For animals like Ursulet to have a chance at life, the Animal Orphan Hospital Galati, Romania is so important. Your support is extremely important for the preservation of these projects.

Thank you very much for your trust in our daily work! You are all incredible.
