ROLDA is a non-profit organization (CUI: 18416340) located in one of the poorest regions of Romania (south-east), Galati county, where we provide short and long term humane solutions to the homeless dogs population, exposed to abuses, hunger and often, a cruel death..
We transform rescued dogs (sometimes very scared or shy) into safe pets for the right people-companions.
With us, a dog stops subsisting and starts living!
Short term impact
- Rescue every dog in need of our assistance;
- Provide medical care to rescued dogs;
- Built and manage modern, clean sheltering facilities (1st shelter and 2nd shelter);
- Provide emergency food aid to poor pets;
- Sponsor the sterilization and identification(microchipping) of poor pets from villages to reduce the abandon rate;
- Re-home sociable dogs in Romania and abroad, in verified (pre-selected) adoptive families/individuals, based on adoption contract agreement.
ROLDA’ Smaller Shelter was nominated for three times in the past 10 years the Best Dog shelter from Romania.
