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.



Sustainably preventing animal suffering...

May 2023

A little "Hou(n)dini".
The pretty dog was often seen by the team of our animal orphanage in Moreni, Romania - but magically she always disappeared when she noticed what was "up".
That's why the team was especially happy when animal lovers brought her to the SUST-OAH Moreni for free neutering.
She lives near the forest, where the people from Moreni like to picnic, but always keeps a nice distance.
If you get too close, PUFF - she does her magic trick - Copperfield would be green with envy!
However, one of the volunteers from the local animal shelter knows the trick and finally found her in the stable of a shepherd. The shepherd agreed to neuter her.
Anda, the manager of OAH Moreni thanks her with the following words:
"She is such a sweet and friendly dog, and we are happy that we can offer her not only the neutering, but also the vaccination, deworming and flea and tick treatment for free.
Thanks to your donations, we were able to change this sweet performer's life for the better and prevent more unwanted puppies from being born."
