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).



Two ocelot ladies get to know each other

February 2022

After the new cat enclosure was financed by the Susy Utzinger Foundation, the preparations in Esperanza Verde are in full swing! What is most important now: the two young female ocelots Gaia and Wayra have to become friends! This is a very slow and sensitive process and one cannot be too careful. After spending time in each other's enclosure to get used to the smell, they now had their first contact - through a grid. The whole thing was strictly supervised to prevent any conflict. But the two ocelots show themselves from their best side: so far there has only been friendly, curious sniffing. If they continue to get to know each other so well, there is a good chance that one day they will be able to share the large enclosure! Since the two cats have had a lot of human contact from an early age, it will never be possible to release them into the wild. How wonderful it would be if they could keep each other company in their new, large and natural enclosure soon!
