SUST Orphan Animal Hospitals

SUST Orphan Animal Hospitals

In many countries countless abandoned animals live on the streets. Many of these dogs and cats have been abandoned or born as strays. Life on the streets is dangerous and full of privation. Injured and sick animals usually have no chance to survive and usually die in agony and alone on the streets. Often in such cases there is no lack of helpfulness of people who love animals, but of their financial means to have street animals treated by a veterinarian.
The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation set up the SUST Animal Orphan Hospitals to ensure that these animals also receive help in need.
At present, there is one of these institutions in each of the following countries
- Galati, Romania
- Bucharest, Romania
- Hurghada, Egypt
- Bello Horizons, Peru
Since their opening, animals that have been injured or sick have been brought daily to the SUST Animal Orphan Hospitals, where they are professionally treated and cared for. If the animals are healthy and strong enough to survive on the streets after their recovery, they are released back into their territory. If possible, animals with special needs will be accommodated in animal shelters. Fortunately, new places for patients can be continuously found.
The Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation finances the veterinary costs, clinic equipment, medicines, operations, therapies, food and care in the animal orphanage hospitals. The SUST often also finances the construction of the corresponding clinic.
The activities of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation are financed exclusively by donations and legacies (no public support).



A big dog from the public shelter was lucky enough to be adopted

But then he got into a fight and sustained nasty injuries. So he ended up in the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital Galati (Romania).

One can imagine friendlier dogs than him. That is why his humans kept their hands off his wounds. When finally it was no longer possible and they brought him in, the wounds were extremely infected and full of maggots that ate his flesh. The open areas had to be cleaned thoroughly, and we had to operate on the torn ear to save the remaining part.

We were able to provide him with medical care free of charge thanks to your support. Now he can walk through life free of pain and worms. Thank you very much for your help!
