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).



Kiros Story

July 2021

Looking back at some photos in this folder, you can follow Kiro's story very well: At the end of April, a sad picture of three miserable capuchin monkeys who just arrived fresh at Esperanza Verde, hungry, dirty and scared. Among them little Kiro, one of the youngest monkeys ever to arrive at the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital.
Then, at the end of May, so much progress: Kiro can leave the hospital after his condition has greatly improved. He is getting to know the forest environment through a safe enclosure and spending time with an experienced adult female capuchin.
Now, two more months later, we can continue the story: we were able to open the last door for Kiro. He is still very young, but strong and curious. He gets good support from the free-living monkey group in Esperanza Verde, which he could join outside. He has already made friends there now, among the other young capuchin monkeys as well as the woolly monkeys. We are proud of the little one and eager to see how it will go on.
