About

Stop homeless animals' sufference in Romania.

Thanks to your generous gift, ROLDA continue to rescue street dogs, do free sterilizations for the dogs and cats of poor and elderly people; rehabilitate frightened abused strays, rehome healthy lovely companions in Romania, Holland, Norway and other countries.

ROLDA also sterilize the dogs who are located within the huge steel plant AMG, that built and sponsors one of our shelters.

Most of the dogs captured from the steel plant and other industrial sites are only skin and bones, sick and terrified of people. ROLDA has a bigger challenge than rescue missions that only help dogs within the city, who are used to human presence and have sometimes been tamed by human handouts.

Especially for the newly arrived dogs, getting them used to spot-on treatment against ticks and fleas is a huge challenge, as they are afraid if someone goes too close, not to mention if try to touch them. Winning their confidence takes months. Our happiest moments come when a wild dog starts walking on a leash, undisturbed and relaxed near our ROLDA people.

To improve the lives of dogs from our large shelter we need cerebral volunteers, who understand the difference between Romania (as it is) and other civilized countries. We need experienced and optimistic volunteers, who are ready to work with the tamed dogs and obey the shelter rules.
I am hoping to find many more of this type of volunteer in the coming years.

Donations can be made at all year round. Thank you for being part of ROLDA dream!
