Help animals


Shelter and veterinary care for stray animals in Moreni, Romania

The SUST orphan animal hospital (OAH) Moreni gives stray animals in need a second chance: Sick and injured strays are treated here free of charge and professionally, operated and nursed back to health. In addition to emergency cases, castrations are also carried out on a daily basis: Thus, the overpopulation of street animals in this region is limited in an animal-friendly and sustainable way.

Every day many dogs and cats in Romania are abandoned, injured, have accidents and/or fall ill - most of them die miserably without help. Nobody cares about these animals. (Passers-by usually do not take such animals in distress to the vet for fear of the high costs) The remaining animals multiply uncontrollably and provide for numerous, unfortunately unwanted offspring.

In the orphan animal hospitals of the Susy Utzinger Animal Welfare Foundation, street animals find refuge and help! Accidentally injured and sick animals receive veterinary care here, and spay and neutering for dogs and cats are also carried out on an ongoing basis. The Susy Utzinger Foundation organizes and finances the Orphan Animal Hospital in Moreni and covers the veterinary costs, finances medicines, operations, therapies and care.
In addition to the free spay programm and treatments of street animals, SUST is also intensively committed to a sustainable solution of the animal welfare problems on site on other levels: Education and training of professionals, optimization of animal shelters, information and education of the population and promotion of the placement of homeless animals directly in the country.



The SUST-OAH Moreni says Thank You!

February 2023

Last week, there was a significant delivery for our youngest SUST Orphan Animal Hospital in Moreni, Romania.
The @KLEINTIERKLINIK AM SEE in Rorschach/Switzerland donated an anesthesia machine to the OAH. Many thanks!
To fill the pallet we included cat crates, transport boxes for dogs & cats, a heated cat cave for kittens, bedding as well as many more animal items.
Anda, the manager from the Orphan Animal Hospital immediately wrote to us:
"Every item we have received has brought us so much joy because we can already see in our minds how well it will help the animals in need. There is no small donation - everything helps us in Romania, a country with still so many sad stories regarding animal welfare.
Every day we struggle to rewrite those stories. Every day you provide a new happy ending for thousands of animals in need.
Thank you for your commitment and trust in our work!"
We can only agree with that!
