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).



It was quite difficult to help this dog

For a full week, his rescuer tried to approach him until he finally managed to catch him. This happened in a village near the city of Galati.

He was probably abandoned because he had anal prolapse and his original humans did not know how to deal with it. He had to spend many days in this condition, without shelter and in extreme heat. We scanned him and unfortunately could not find a microchip.

A homeless animal in distress - a typical case for the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital. We operated on the anal prolapse and also neutered the male at the same time, free of charge, as is SUST-OAH policy. Now the good guy can live a life without pain, with the man who rescued and now adopted him.

Thank you very much for supporting our OAH projects!
