Hobbes makes a big announcement

Hobbes, our dog Tami and Mr. President Obama what do they have in common? Stay closer to find out!

If you call yourself a dog savior, every once in awhile you have to save a dog. No one has ever become poor by giving!

2.5 millions street dogs live across  Romania while thousands of them die every week. It is in your power to save them. Join us! How will you be part of our rescue mission?

Every year, hundreds of abused and abandoned dogs are saved because of the kindness and generosity of people like you.

What can you do to help them now? So much!


           New “green” building to serve 250,000 people and 20,000 animals!

Millions of dogs, cats, farm animals suffer in silence across Romania. Right at this moment, by making a donation, you can make a difference between life and death for a lucky soul. Our supporters, like us and like you, don’t see these animals as disposable items. But too many people still do. So they are cast away as trash. ROLDA’ s staff and volunteers pick up what others consider “garbage” in Romania. With the support of our donors we can transform “waste” into wonderful pets, and find them loving homes.

Animals helped in 2014: 1,498



Strays are a public health concern as well as an animal rights issue. Make our streets safe. Make a donation! Make a change!

In 2007, in partnership with ArcelorMittal we started a unique project in Romania, a project that changed life to thousands of street dogs, a project addressed not only to animal’ lovers but to the whole community! The ultimate goals are: No more street dogs at the steel plant but also a caring and a cleaner city! See here HOW we do it



   We built it TOGETHER! One of the best sanctuaries in Eastern Europe!

Started in 2003, following the British old-style shelter model, this sanctuary was built from zero with the private support offered by international donors. Evaluated 3 times by international experts, who compared it with various sanctuaries from Romania and other Eastern Europe  countries, it was top rated. See here WHY



  Help an injured dog! Help stop his pain!

The Medical Fund was created to cover the costs of activities like sterilization, emergency treatments, or post-surgery costs, short or long term medical care. Our own social clinic, built in autumn 2011, needs veterinary equipment, instruments, recovery stainless steel cages and special hospital furniture Read more DONATE



Therapy Dogs for seniors. A life companion

They could be elderly family members or friends. So often a loved one passes, and leaves a partner alone. Emotionally they are devastated. Financially they often barely subsist. Even the sunniest days may become dark. Our seniors still have so much to contribute and so much to give. There is much we can learn from our elders. Many have giant hearts and still much love to give. Help us to create a therapy center with companion dogs for seniors! A dog’s energy and happiness is infectious. You can see it on the faces of both dogs and people, as helping each other to live a less lonely life. What better reward is there than unconditional love?Read more and HELP
