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.



This brave old dog lady....

June 2023

Probably all her life this older dog lady feels unwanted. She is either very old or has only been fed rocks and bones; her teeth tell the hard story of her survival.
Still, she wags her tail when someone talks to her - A living, feeling creature. As all animals are.
She was brought to us at the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital in Moreni (RO) by a military unit stationed near Moreni, because she was apathetic for days.
Upon examination, our team found that she was suffering from pyometra. A severe, hormonally influenced, purulent inflammation of the uterus.
Thanks to your commitment to the SUST neuter campaigns and the SUST OAH's, we were able to promise this brave lady not only neuter....
Our team in Moreni also vaccinated her right away, gave her antibiotics, intravenous fluids and treated her against parasites.
Thanks to your donations, her life will be a little easier from now on!
Thank you for your continued support of SUST's sustainable animal welfare work:
This brave old dog lady....
