In December 2016, the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital Budapest joined the SUST OAH Group, where injured and sick animals receive urgently needed veterinary care.
The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation finances the Orphan Animal Hospital on the "Animal-Island" and pays for the veterinarian's costs, pays for medicines, operations, therapies and care. If the animals are able to return to their Finders or to the animal shelter after their recovery, this will happen - many of the stranded casualties will also find shelter in the shelter Rex kutyaotthon alapítvány on the animal island and be placed in good places.
Since 2002, the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation has been committed to animal welfare in Hungary. In this long and intensive period of time, the animal welfare situation in this country has improved massively: countless organisations have asked for and received support from us, many animal shelters have been optimised, we hold animal welfare seminars and veterinary training courses, we provide information brochures and leaflets for animal keepers and there are many different castration campaigns throughout the country. One of our animal protection partners in Hungary is the Budapest Nature and Animal Protection Center (Animal Island): it is exceptionally well designed and modernly managed. The animal friends on site - in addition to the optimal husbandry and placement of homeless dogs and cats - are also committed to the appropriate care of farm animals and the education of school children. SUST has been working with this organisation for many years and has already financed various infrastructures.
