Real life room

Real Life Rooms Make Adoptions Remarkable!
It’s a rescued Romanian dog’s life. To them it must seem like heaven compared to life on the streets. But crowded shelters with limited space and noisy are not the ideal conditions in which to rehabilitate and re-home ROLDA’s dogs. We are in the process of renovating our current facilities and have purchased the land for the construction on a new third shelter.

But improvements take money, and they take time. One priority that we have set for ourselves is creating an oasis for our dogs, where they can show off how super special they truly […]

ROLDA seeks Estate Planning Professionals
The goal of planned giving is to help donors plan their estates and charitable giving in ways that benefit the donor, their heirs, and the animals that so desperately need help. The federal tax code allows for several trusts and gift agreements that are used in making planned gifts to ROLDA. These can provide significant tax benefits for donors. Therefore, the study and practice of planned giving is twofold. It involves knowledge of people and their needs as well as knowledge of taxation and the gift agreements available to fill those needs.

ROLDA is seeking the support […]

Don’t turn your back

By |June 23rd, 2015|


Small charities like ROLDA are always facing difficult fundraising challenges that can be devastating to their mission. Constant uncertainty about funding affects progress and results, and the ones who suffer are those we are trying to help.
ROLDA is a small animal charity that has 2 shelters with a capacity for 700 dogs. We are located in an industrial town in Galati, the poorest region in Romania with a population of 20,000 homeless dogs.
Because we cannot raise sufficient funds locally due to poverty. We have to […]

Repositioning dogs

By |June 22nd, 2015|

With your help, ROLDA can continue to rescue and reposition homeless dogs into loving homes across Europe.

So how can you help?
Repositioning dogs is difficult without the support of caring people who can see the pain and suffering these dogs are going through every day.
I understand homeless dogs suffer every day.

There are currently 700 rescued dogs at our ROLDA shelters and 20,000 homeless dogs near our shelters that we are desperately trying to reposition into loving homes.
We are desperate because when our shelters are at capacity (700 dogs) and none get adopted, there are 20,000 homeless dogs that are suffering from […]

Dogs without homes

By |June 22nd, 2015|


Our ROLDA shelters are located in Galati, an industrial region in Eastern Romania. Years ago, people began abandoning and relocating dogs to this desolate region and over time the stray population multiplied out of control.

Eventually, these homeless dogs became a problem to the industrial companies and residents of Galati. They were declared a threat to public health and safety.

The Romanian government finally decided to resolve this problem by…
Is that any way to resolve a problem? Their reasoning is:
Do […]

Dog for sale

By |June 22nd, 2015|

Your search for a perfect dog STOPS HERE!
Dog for sale or dog for adoption?
There are several arguments for each option, but we at ROLDA are focused on finding a loving home for every dog it rescues. We do not offer DOGS FOR SALE … only DOGS FOR ADOPTION.

We do not oppose to the sale of dogs (as long as it’s humane), but our mission is to rescue every homeless dog in Romania and give them an opportunity to become adopted.

There are 2.5 million homeless dogs in Romania that are suffering from starvation, disease, neglect, abuse, and torture.
These same dogs have […]

Dogs breeds

By |June 22nd, 2015|

In Romania … NO dog breed is safe.
In 2013, the Romanian government passed a law to kill the entire stray population, including dogs held in public shelters.
That means 2.5 million homeless dogs are being…
The authorities do not care for dog breeds — if the dog is homeless, it must be killed.
This is the easiest, fastest, and cheapest solution the government could think of. To them and millions of Romanian citizens, homeless dogs are an inconvenience that must be eliminated.

But not everyone feels the same way. We at ROLDA work hard every day to save as many homeless dogs […]

Give Hope

By |June 21st, 2015|

To All of ROLDA’s Incredible Supporters,

We’ve all been there. Each of us has had times when we were burdened beyond that which we felt we could carry. Our battles may differ, but our resolve remains the same. We fight emotional, family, financial, and work issues that sometimes threaten to overwhelm us.
But we never give up. Always, we keep hope.

“Hope Springs Eternal” as the saying goes. And so it must. Because if one has no hope, one has no future.

Sometimes we may look up to the sky. For a momentary escape? For a glimpse of an airplane?Anchored in the ground, […]

Help Us Stop the Cruel Cycle of Puppy Overpopulation

Babies Born Ready to Die
In one of the poorest Romanian houses near Galati, lives a canine Cinderella. But we call her BLONDA. Her brief two years on this planet have been spent with a short chain around her neck. She was kept alive to “defend” her family and their property. BLONDA has been through more in two years, than any dog deserves to endure in an entire lifetime.

A meal to this gentle girl meant a few leftovers and scraps from her family’s table. She has already been a mother three times. She […]

One mother’s Story

Donate to Stop the Suffering

My name is Laika, and I am a Romanian girl. I am prettier and younger than I look. But too many litters of little ones has aged me. Last year, there were four puppies, and now there are 6 more but only 2 still alive.

I love my children, but I cannot provide for them. There are no human homes for them here, and my own family was too poor to have me sterilized. There is a desperate need to spay and neuter me and the millions of other homeless dogs. To […]
