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).



In the right place at the right time

July 2021

Luck of the draw - On the way back from a castration action in Giurgiu, our ambulance driver definitely proved his driving skills: On a four-lane highway, a dog ran into the middle of the road and in front of the vehicle. Only with a bold maneuver the driver managed to avoid the dog and bring the ambulance to a stop - human and animal unharmed.

Fortunately, the dog was not quite so frightened by the incident, but let himself be touched and examined without any problems. Since he is neither chipped nor neutered, we brought him to OAH-Bucharest, where we will vaccinate, chipped and of course neuter him.

Now we hope that this dear guy will find a good new home soon! Until then, of course, he can stay with us, where he will be provided with everything he needs.
