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).



SUST Animal Orphans Hospital Peru: Rescue for poached wild animals

This young capuchin monkey was recently photographed at the SUST OAH in Esperanza Verde. Here you can see the female sitting on a branch in one of our enclosures. This is where newly arrived animals spend their quarantine period, where they can be closely monitored until they can be released into larger outdoor enclosures and eventually into the Esperanza Verde area. Baby monkeys are a popular target for poachers who resell them as "pets" on the black market. In order to obtain the young of a mother monkey, she must be shot from the trees in the rainforest. Esperanza Verde is taking active steps against this cruel poaching. The SUST enables Esperanza Verde to care for the animals properly from the beginning.
