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




SUST Animal Orphans Hospital Galati

The SUST employees of the Galati district in Romania were just trying to relax and enjoy the day of work when they discovered this abandoned puppy in a village.
With all the fast traffic we were the only hope for the little bitch. When we managed to catch her, we noticed how thin she was. She was full of parasites and immediately started vomiting worms, which led us to realize that she must have eaten dead animals that she found on the roadside.
Now she is safe, has been dewormed and has already received her first vaccination in our animal orphan hospital. The next step is to find her a real home that she really deserves. 
With your valuable support, we can offer these life-saving opportunities to animals in need. Little Biggi - her new name - is very grateful for your support.

The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation finances veterinary costs, clinic equipment, medication, operations, therapies, food and care in the five animal orphan hospitals.
