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.



Animal shelter workday at the Ponyhof HOPE

May 2019

Due to the rainy weather, this year's animal shelter work day season can only be opened at the end of May. A large SUST team will kick off the season with a mission at the Ponyhof HOPE in Bad Ragaz.

It's unbelievable what the animal team could do on this day under the direction of Sabina Flammer:

- Enlarging the chicken run and making it fox-proof
- Replacing the igloo floors in the sanctuary
- Repair hay nets for the horses, extend floor covering
- Lining a large dry area with gravel and eccoraster
- Concreted posts
- Lining the smaller stable with Eccoraster

We would like to thank all SUST helpers for their great work!
