Lakshmi Mittal

Mr. Mittal,

ROLDA s accomplishment during the last 8 years; 70% reduction in stray dog s population at the steel plant, due to sterilization and adoption programs.

200 dogs in ROLDA s shelter have no financial support! The agreement to prioritize the collection of pregnant dogs has resulted in one dog sponsored, the puppies are left with no financial support.

Sewage machine was inhumanely canceled! The current contract with the steel plant does not include maintenance services like collecting the sewage, this putting all 630 dogs and worker s health at great risk.

1500 dogs at the steel plant are in danger! There is no safe future for the dogs that may get injured by heavy industrial equipment and trucks, there is no safe place to shelter these dogs. The steel plant’s internal rules forbid the workers to feed the dogs. Will the dogs end up in public shelter in Galati? We do worry, in 2007 before the start of the dogs’ project, many dogs were accidentally poisoned at the steel plant.

Broken promises to build the most modern shelter with all necessary facilities! 8 years after the collaboration between the steel plant and ROLDA started, the promised investments are not completed, and future investments were cancelled in fall of 2015. ROLDA s supporters have continued to invest in the shelters, they trusted the steel plant promises! The supporters have always worked for a better life and future for these dogs, believing that the steel plant would honor its promises.

October 2014, the steel plant wrote a letter of recommendation for ROLDA, stating that: Following to this collaboration and all these years of work, we are now confident that our support provided to ROLDA is going on the right track and it can be noticed now a humane and respectful approach to finding professional solutions, in line with the Romanian law. Of course, further efforts and investments in this domain are needed, especially for infrastructure.

What happened to the steel plant s great vision of managing humanely the stray dog situation?

Why does the steel plant refuse to recognize the errors made by people? Why does the steel plant protect these people, resulting in innocent dogs being let down?

Why let these dogs face an uncertain future and all the dangers, when time and money has been invested in a shelter to take care of them?

ROLDA has the professional team to rescue and rehabilitate, to give these dogs a new chance of a new safe life.

ROLDA is asking for justice and for its contractual rights, the steel plant has obligations and responsibilities for these dogs sheltered at ROLDA. Please send an independent team to investigate the situation in Galati before it is too late to save these dogs!

With respect and hopes,

Signed,

Save Romania Street Dogs

630 innocent dogs are in danger! Mr. Mittal, your dogs need your help!

We are prohibited from informing freely about this situation, pending legal actions taken against the steel plant, but you, Sir know the truth.

Please send a team to investigate the situation in Galati. The steel plant refuses to undertake the full legal obligations and responsibilities for the dogs and this project.

  • The current contract leaves our shelter and dogs without the necessary financial support, promised facilities, investments and services.
  • Worst, the steel plant refused to provide the food (and other related costs) for 200 of the 630 dogs!

These dogs are in imminent danger and this irresponsibly attitude from the steel plant management can't be tolerated! With the financial support from the steel plant, ROLDA has managed to reduce the stray dog population at the steel plant premises with 70%. This has been accomplished through sterilization and adoption programs. ROLDA's large shelter has been housing the dogs collected at the steel plant's premises for over 8 year.

To recognize ROLDA's work, in October 2014, the steel plant management wrote a letter of recommendation with the promise of future investments! Our supporters have invested time and money into this project, they believed that the steel plant would honor their promises.

This has not been an easy job for ROLDA, considering that after 8 years of collaboration, the shelter and its infrastructure are still incomplete.
  • Promised investments have been cancelled, 630 dogs' future is at stake. The steel plant management has not reacted to the documented information regarding their employee's misconduct and mistakes.
What will happen to the 1.500 dogs living at the steel plant premises, will they end up in public shelter in Galati?

There is no safe future and these dogs are in danger of getting hurt or starve to death. The steel plant's internal rules forbid the employees to feed the dogs!

We do need to worry, before our collaboration started in 2007, many dogs were accidentally poisoned. Mr. Mittal: do not let 630 innocent dogs suffer because of people's wrongdoing and mistakes!
