Be a Dog’s Hero!

Behind every dog rescue mission is someone like you, capable of making humanitarian work possible in Romania!

Christmas is not just for people

It’s #dogsXMAS too! Every winter, ROLDA strives to provide food and warmth to thousands of homeless dogs in the southeast of Romania. For the “nobody’s dogs” in Romania, there is no Santa, there is no Christmas. But with your help, we can change this! For Christmas, you can spread your magic and be Santa to a stray dog in need!

Buy a special Christmas meal for a homeless, starving dog! It costs 1 EUR (or USD) and you can buy as many meals as you like!
Click here to read more about our ROLDA Christmas campaign, where you can not only donate to feed dogs, but also buy virtual Christmas gifts for your animal-loving friends or send them a free Christmas e-card!

Your generosity is the true miracle this Christmas!
