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




Two ocelot ladies get to know each other

February 2022

After the new cat enclosure was financed by the Susy Utzinger Foundation, the preparations in Esperanza Verde are in full swing! What is most important now: the two young female ocelots Gaia and Wayra have to become friends! This is a very slow and sensitive process and one cannot be too careful. After spending time in each other's enclosure to get used to the smell, they now had their first contact - through a grid. The whole thing was strictly supervised to prevent any conflict. But the two ocelots show themselves from their best side: so far there has only been friendly, curious sniffing. If they continue to get to know each other so well, there is a good chance that one day they will be able to share the large enclosure! Since the two cats have had a lot of human contact from an early age, it will never be possible to release them into the wild. How wonderful it would be if they could keep each other company in their new, large and natural enclosure soon!
