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).



When guardian angels wear blue scrubs

When an Egyptian street dog strays into a foreign territory, it is usually not welcomed "with open arms", because the already scarce resources are not shared with additional eaters. This young dog lady also felt this: the many bite marks on her body leave no doubt that her short life was almost brought to an early end. Despite the fear of death that the little mouse must have endured, she has not lost her laughter and her zest for life. She owes this to the vets at the SUST Animal Orphan Hospital@Bluemoon in Hurghada, who cleaned her wounds and treated her expertly. She can now recover in peace from her traumatic experience and recharge her batteries for a (hopefully) carefree future.
