Shelter and veterinary care for street animals in Bucharest, Romania.
The SUST orphan animal hospital (OAH) Bucharest gives stay 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.
Countless dogs and cats live on the streets in Romanian cities. Every day, many of them are abandoned, injured, have accidents and/or fall ill - most of them die miserably without help (passers-by usually do not take such animals in distress to the vet for fear of the high costs). The remaining animals reproduce uncontrollably and provide for numerous, unfortunately unwanted offspring.
In Romania, they now receive rescue and urgently needed veterinary care in the cities of Galati, Bucharest and Moreni in the orphan animal hospitals of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation: stray dogs and cats (and many other animal species) find shelter and veterinary care. In addition, spay and neuterings for dogs and cats are carried out on an ongoing basis. The Susy Utzinger Foundation organizes and finances the Orphan Animal Hospital in Bucharest and covers the veterinary costs, finances medicines, operations, therapies and care.
In addition to the free spay programms 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.
