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.



Two dogs rescued by family from killing station in Moreni (RO)

June 2023

Royal treatment!
Our work is especially satisfying when, thanks to your donations, we can help people and animals who are severely affected by poverty.
These two female dogs were rescued by a family in Moreni (RO) from a killing station in a nearby town. Even if they don't look like queens in your castle now, at least they escaped death.
Their owners don't need and don't have much for their life, you just organize yourself that way. Only, the costs for a neutering or even for surprising additions were beyond the narrow monthly budget.
Thanks to your generous and continued support, even in such cases, every animal can be "king" as an OAH client.
Free neuterings, vaccinations and worming treatments. An investment that pays off, because it prevents diseases and overpopulation in the long term.
In Romania we are still far from the level of understanding among the population as it would be absolutely animal-friendly, but with your help, we have succeeded in taking the first steps in the right direction.
Thank you!
