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).



Help for tomcat Pitic

August 2020

Completely lethargic, with very high fever and breathing difficulties, this is how the tomcat Pitic was found on the street. He weighs a little more than 1 kilo, but lost his strength quickly because he was so ill that he could neither drink nor eat.

In another veterinary clinic we had his thorax x-rayed and it turned out that Pitic had a lot of fluid in his lungs. He would probably have died in agony if he had not been treated. Under anesthesia his chest was cleaned twice within a week.

Our team decided to keep him here for observation so that he could receive his treatment: antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, vitamins and high quality food to help him regain his strength. Fortunately, Pitic was found in time and is now saved thanks to your support and donations.
