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).



Terrible finding in a spider monkey baby

March 2022

This little male spider monkey was recently dropped off at the SUST Animal Orphanage. He is just four months old. He was visibly scared and emaciated upon arrival. When he was initially examined, a terrible discovery was made: a bullet from a rifle was stuck in his leg. Unfortunately, this happens again and again.
Poachers shoot specifically at monkey mothers carrying their babies. If they hit, they can not only sell the mother to the black market as meat, but also pass on the cub as a "pet." When they shoot at a group of monkeys, they pay no attention to whom they hit. So often the baby monkeys also suffer gunshot wounds.
The little one is being closely cared for at the animal orphanage hospital in Esperanza Verde. We hope that he will soon be able to meet the free monkey group and find an adoptive mother here.
