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).



Lessie - little dog in big need

Contrary to what many people think, there are many people in Romania who love their animals more than anything else. This is also the case with this elderly woman who, full of panic, reported to the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital in Bucharest. A bigger dog had attacked and injured her little Lessie. The owner was terrified of losing her four-legged friend. Finally, the two elderly ladies made it all the way to the clinic where they received the much needed help. Unfortunately, Lessie's injured eye could not be saved. But the two are incredibly grateful that their journey together did not end on that fateful day. 

And we are equally grateful that thanks to your donations we can save animals from an agonizing death every day. Therefore: Please continue to support us - we can't do it without you!
