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).



This street cat was brought to us by a woman for free neutering

The woman takes care of it and wants to prevent the cat population in her neighborhood from growing more and more. So she borrowed some cat traps from us and caught as many cats as possible.

Among them was this one, which we first thought was pregnant. But during the castration our vet discovered a life-threatening situation: a tumor. It was lucky that she ended up with us in time!

Many homeless animals die from all kinds of health problems, without any help, without anyone noticing.

This sweetie will stay with us until she is fully recovered, then she will return to her territory and never have to have kittens again.

In her case and countless others, the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital Galati (RO) is the chance of life and the rescue from illness, suffering and death.

Thank you very much for your valuable support.
