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).



Here you can see the little night monkey Maru!

He came to the wildlife sanctuary Esperanza Verde a few months ago. At the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital he could be examined immediately upon his arrival and observed for a while. He is now doing very well and can move freely in the forest and continues to have access to fresh food provided by us. Despite the fact that he is free to go wherever he wants, he likes to visit people from time to time. For example, here he is sitting on the porch of the Esperanza Verde managers' house!

Many night monkey species in the Amazon are endangered by deforestation of the rainforest and also by the black market trade in wildlife. This makes the work of sanctuaries like Esperanza Verde and the great support of the Susy Utzinger Foundation so important.
