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).



Dog baby survives after fire

SUST Orphan Animals Hospital in Galati, Romania

day this went up in flames. The child of the family ended up in the hospital with severe burns and the puppy was left behind.

The local NGO "Help Labus" and the fire department rescued the puppy and brought it to us at OAH.

Here the fight for the young dog's life began. She had to be put under oxygen, her lungs and airways were damaged, her face and body burned. Very intensive care began, we watched her closely around the clock, she was in pain and for a very long time it was not clear if she would make it.

But she made it! Today she is doing well, she has even found a new home and just has to wait a little bit for her papers.

That she survived was a miracle. It is thanks to your support that we were able to treat her at a high professional level and had the oxygen machine. That was crucial for her. Thank you all so much!
