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-Einsatz in Hurghada, Ägypten

Oktober 2018

Im Oktober wurden unsere Kollegen vor Ort unterstützt von Dr. Nina Waldern (Tierärztin Grosstiere), Nina Gysel (TPA), Kea Lock (TPA), Simone Maurer (SUST-Tierschutzhelferin) und Susy Utzinger. Dieses Team wurde begleitet vom erfahrenen Kleintierarzt Dr. Antonio Rios Perez aus unserer Partnerklinik in Mexico (Planned Pethood Mexiko). Während einer Woche arbeiteten diese Fachleute hier in Ägypten zusammen, optimierten Abläufe, kastrierten Strassenhunde und -katzen, behandelten verletzte Tiere. Auch die Grosstiere erhielten wichtige Behandlungen: Zähne schleifen, Tränenkanäle spülen, Hengste kastrieren, Hufe raspeln und verschiedene Verletzungen behandeln standen in diesen Tagen auf dem Programm. Daneben tauschten die Fachleute viel Fachwissen und Erfahrungen aus, besprachen spezielle Fälle und schmiedeten weitere Tierschutzpläne für die Zukunft.
