Help animals


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.



Cat neutering project in Moreni, Romania

February 2022

You have to be creative! That's what this elderly lady said to herself when she was looking for a way to bring her sweet little kitten to our cat neutering project in Moreni, Romania.
The lady with the cat in her pannier runs a small boarding house which barely covers her living expenses and is enormously grateful that neutering costs her nothing. We are glad that we can help animals of people who need our support the most. 
Our cat neutering project in Moreni, Romania has already been able to perform 160 free cat neuterings so far in 2022.

Thank you for making sustainable and professional animal welfare possible with your donation and trust.
