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.



Great luck in misfortune...

May 2023

Tina, a young dog girl from Moreni, Romania fortunately has an attentive owner. The lady realized that something was wrong with the pregnant dog's belly and therefore asked for help at the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital in Moreni.
Tina's life was really in danger! The brave dog girl not only had a hernia, but her puppy was also developing outside the abdominal cavity, so it had no chance of survival and Tina could not have given birth.
We immediately performed emergency surgery on her and castrated her at the same time so that she would be spared pain in the future. She was spared this suffering only because the owner knew that in our OAHs we take on emergency cases of those affected by poverty.
Many thanks to ALL SUST supporters.
Your commitment makes it possible to solve emergencies like Tina's and prevent unnecessary animal suffering!
