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).



Yara is a tiny kitten who was found on the street with his brother

SUST Orphan Animal Hospital Bucharest

Unfortunately, he died before we could help him, but Yara was lucky enough to come to us in time.

One of the most common causes of death in such young kittens is poisoning due to intestinal worms, and that is exactly what Yara would have been at risk of without your help.

A massive infestation of intestinal worms floods the host - in this case Yara's body - with toxins that attack the nervous system and kill the host.

Thanks to your generosity, we were able to help Yara with a combination of vitamins, neurological support and a special treatment for the worms. Effective, but at the same time as gentle as possible so as not to harm her poor weak body. We are happy to report that Yara has fully recovered and has now been adopted by the people who found her.

We thank you for your compassion and generosity! Yara's story is one of many that keep us going despite these difficult times.
