SUST Orphan Animal Hospitals

SUST Orphan Animal Hospitals

In many countries countless abandoned animals live on the streets. Many of these dogs and cats have been abandoned or born as strays. Life on the streets is dangerous and full of privation. Injured and sick animals usually have no chance to survive and usually die in agony and alone on the streets. Often in such cases there is no lack of helpfulness of people who love animals, but of their financial means to have street animals treated by a veterinarian.
The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation set up the SUST Animal Orphan Hospitals to ensure that these animals also receive help in need.
At present, there is one of these institutions in each of the following countries
- Galati, Romania
- Bucharest, Romania
- Hurghada, Egypt
- Bello Horizons, Peru
Since their opening, animals that have been injured or sick have been brought daily to the SUST Animal Orphan Hospitals, where they are professionally treated and cared for. If the animals are healthy and strong enough to survive on the streets after their recovery, they are released back into their territory. If possible, animals with special needs will be accommodated in animal shelters. Fortunately, new places for patients can be continuously found.
The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation finances the veterinary costs, clinic equipment, medicines, operations, therapies, food and care in the animal orphanage hospitals. The SUST often also finances the construction of the corresponding clinic.
The activities of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation are financed exclusively by donations and legacies (no public support).



Help for an old male dog

August 2021

Since its opening in June, the SUST Street Cat Clinic has had its hands full and has already professionally treated, operated on and nursed back to health countless sick or injured strays. In addition to all the velvet paws, our team on site naturally cares for every animal that needs help. So also this male came to us in the street cat clinic. He was simply abandoned on the street by his former owner and left to fend for himself after he became old and sick. When he came to us, he was in a very bad condition; he had a high fever and appeared very apathetic. The examination carried out immediately showed that he was suffering from babesiosis. Of course, we provide the poor male with everything necessary and hope that he will recover soon. The best news at the end: His finders and rescuers want to give him a second chance and will bring him home as soon as he is on all fours again! We wish the old man many more wonderful dog days with his new family!
