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).



Desperate emergency call at the SUST OAH Bucharest

This tiny kitten was more dead than alive when a good samaritan found it. It had to suffer terribly, had been separated from its mother much too early and had been left alone to survive. As you can see, he is suffering from rhinotracheitis, a contagious disease that affects the respiratory tract and can lead to death if left untreated.

At SUST-OAH Bucharest we immediately started treatment, with antibiotics, vitamin D, anti-inflammatory eye drops and lots of high quality food to help the little one regain her strength.

There must be something wrong in a world where people have the heart to hurt an innocent animal like this tiny kitten. Most of the time they say that in a country already teeming with stray cats and dogs, there is no room for more unwanted animals...

We thank you for your support and your compassion. You make it possible for us to save innocent lives and do the right thing where others have done wrong.
