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.



The new SUST-OAH in Moreni (RO)...

April 2023

Fulminant start as a "freshly baked" SUST Orphan Animal Hospital, the first big cat neutering action took place in Moreni (RO) exactly 2 months ago today....
On that day, the small clinic already reached its capacity limit.
Anda Popescu, the manager of SUST-OAH Moreni was indeed surprised by the "run", and by how well the targeted education/public relations worked - but plans more of these special action days:
"It was important in the first two months of the year, before mating season begins, to help as many cats as possible - THANK YOU for making a big difference by supporting so many small steps!"
You can support SUST neutering efforts directly through crowdfunding:
