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




This poor tomcat walked around the city for a very long time with an open fracture

Galati, Romania

Being very shy and skeptical of people, he ran away every time someone tried to help him. Fortunately, a nice lady did not give up and was finally able to catch him. Upon arrival at our clinic, his fur was in terrible condition, his leg was deformed, his wounds were infected and he was completely dehydrated. In his case, unfortunately, it was impossible to save the leg anymore. Only after a few days he started to behave better with us, probably when the pain stopped. Thanks to your tireless support he is alive and well today. Thank you very much!
