PawzUp adoption centre

Probably the largest project of its kind, reuniting people and animals in Romania

Why PawzUp project?

ROLDA operates in one of the poorest regions of Romania, where a family of 4 (or more) members survive with approx. 150 EUR a month.
House pets (cats, dogs), working animals(horses, donkeys) constantly risk abandonment, while around 200.000 street dogs are exposed daily to risks such as starvation, disease, or death.

The local private vet hospitals can’t cope with the huge numbers of animals in need, they often have to choose whom to take in and the vet bills are huge, in the really good clinics, where animals have a chance to recover. On the other hand, the large animals face a grisly fate since there are absolutely no veterinary clinics equipped to meet their needs, only improvisations.

Animals need people’s help.
But after years of experience first-hand, the positive impact of animals on people’s lives, we dare say that people need animals, too.

We want PawzUp to be a strong foundation upon which we can rebuild the relationship between man and animals. PawzUp is a concept and a bold dream; a way to bring people and animals together and allow them to help one another and enjoy each other’s company.
