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).



Another helpless puppy at the SUST Orphan Animals Hospital Galati (RO)

He lay in the blazing sun, very weak and sick, and was eaten alive by worms.

We were shocked by this sight. Again and again we can hardly believe that people can do such a thing and simply abandon a little puppy that cannot defend itself.

Fortunately, we are there to help in such cases. The little one is a fighter. Even though it is very difficult to raise such young animals, we don't give up on him. OAH worker Mihaela is taking good care of him and we will take care of him until the right person comes to give him a home.

We can only do this with your generous support. Thank you very much for everything!
