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).



Warning: Not for faint hearted!

Granted: After a few years in animal welfare, there is not much that shocks you anymore. But some cases in our animal orphanages really make your blood run cold... 

The sight of Aliosha on the day he was found is definitely not for the faint-hearted, which is why we only show it to you in pixels.

How sweet Aliosha ended up with a torn off hind leg in the remote backcountry between Romania and Moldavia, where he was found by a biker, nobody can or wants to imagine. Unimaginable also the huge will to survive of the little cat, which let him hold out for so long despite the incredible pain and the great loss of blood.

For the little fighter, the perseverance was worth it: in the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital in Galati (RO), he is finally receiving the urgently needed help. And his happiness doesn't end there: as soon as his wound is completely healed, he will be allowed to move to the cat house of the SUST shelter, where he will live a cared-for life.
