Shelter and veterinary care for stray animals in Moreni, Romania

The SUST orphan animal hospital (OAH) Moreni gives stray animals in need a second chance: Sick and injured strays are treated here free of charge and professionally, operated and nursed back to health. In addition to emergency cases, castrations are also carried out on a daily basis: Thus, the overpopulation of street animals in this region is limited in an animal-friendly and sustainable way.

Every day many dogs and cats in Romania are abandoned, injured, have accidents and/or fall ill - most of them die miserably without help. Nobody cares about these animals. (Passers-by usually do not take such animals in distress to the vet for fear of the high costs) The remaining animals multiply uncontrollably and provide for numerous, unfortunately unwanted offspring.

In the orphan animal hospitals of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation, street animals find refuge and help! Accidentally injured and sick animals receive veterinary care here, and spay and neutering for dogs and cats are also carried out on an ongoing basis. The Susy Utzinger Foundation organizes and finances the Orphan Animal Hospital in Moreni and covers the veterinary costs, finances medicines, operations, therapies and care.
In addition to the free spay programm and treatments of street animals, SUST is also intensively committed to a sustainable solution of the animal welfare problems on site on other levels: Education and training of professionals, optimization of animal shelters, information and education of the population and promotion of the placement of homeless animals directly in the country.



A little lucky guy...

June 2023

Berry, grain, there are many translations...
...but in any case, small and sweet, that means Bobiță.
That's the name of the lucky little guy in the photo. Lucky, because he was found just in time.
Bullied by other dogs, full of ticks, with a wound on his neck from the much too tight collar and completely starved & insecure, a woman from the region discovered him in front of her door and immediately fell in love. (By the way, this is based on reciprocity).
She immediately brought Bobiță to us at the SUST Animal Orphan Hospital Moreni (RO).
Where, thanks to your support, he was neutered free of charge and treated against fleas, ticks and worms.
By the way, Bobiță is allowed to stay with the lady and is finally enjoying his life in a home where his well-being comes first.
We are so happy to be part of his new story.
Thanks to your commitment to animals in need, so are you.
Thank you for your support!
A little lucky guy...
