Work assignements in animal shelters

When animal shelters need help, the SUST is there for them.

While animal shelters and graveyards fight daily for their existence and take care of the complex care of their orphans, it can happen that important points are neglected in their animal shelter everyday life.

Since 2000, the animal shelter support provided by the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation has been helping where animal shelters reach their limits: It is part of the daily work of the SUST experts to carry out days of work in animal shelters in which SUST teams tackle long overdue tasks, modify or supplement animal shelter facilities, reorganise animal shelter procedures, coordinate craftsmen's work (and bear their costs) and deliver animal feed, animal shelter utensils and building materials to animal shelters throughout Switzerland and abroad.

Here, animal welfare workers use their free time, expertise and strength to help homeless animals.

Care and cleaning work for the animals (dogs, cats, donkeys, sheep, goats) is carried out and several hundred animals are dewormed and treated against ectoparasites. In addition, the animal welfare professionals also find time to look after individual animals, to play, cuddle, brush and care for them and to socialise the youngest ones in the puppy station and in the kitten station.

The projects of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation are sustainable and help animals and humans directly on the spot!

At the same time as the work at the animal shelter, there is also another castration week: During the whole week, three experienced SUST veterinarians castrate dogs and cats. In order for this to work smoothly and for many animals to be operated on every day, a large team of helpers working hand in hand is necessary.
