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.



Involuntary diet...

January 2024

The handsome cat has already lost over 2 kilograms until one of his caregivers learned about our free veterinary care services at the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital Moreni (RO).

The cat had not eaten for weeks due to inflammation in the throat, and his caregiver, aware that her limited budget wouldn't cover a regular vet, had to watch as her feline friend became weaker.

Your donations make it possible for us to provide prompt and highly professional help in such cases at our Orphan Animal Hospitals (SUST-OAH). The team at OAH Moreni was able to administer the necessary fluids, antibiotics, and pain medication, resulting in a rapid improvement in the cat's condition.

Although he may still look a bit grumpy, perhaps he just doesn't enjoy posing for photos (some may relate).

Thank you for enabling this work with your donations. From training professionals to affection for animals in need, your support covers a wide range of essential services."
