The SUST-Orphan Animal Hospital Beirut (Lebanon) gives street animals in need a second chance: sick and injured strays are treated, operated on and rehomed here free of charge and professionally. In addition to emergency cases, castrations are also carried out: In this way, 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 and around Beirut. Every day, many of them are abandoned, get 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 numerous, unfortunately unwanted offspring.
In the Lebanese capital, many of them are rescued and receive urgently needed veterinary care at the Animal Orphans Hospital of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation: street dogs and cats (as well as other animal species) find refuge and veterinary care here. In addition, neutering of dogs and cats is carried out here on an ongoing basis. The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation organises and finances the Orphan Animal Hospital in Beirut and covers the veterinary costs, finances medication, therapies and care.
