Sanctuary for aging & disabled felines

New #roldacats projects for Romanian cats in need

ROLDA believes aging animals deserve to enjoy their twilight years in a peaceful setting. For more than a decade, our supporters have enabled us to provide a healthy habitat and optimal healthcare to hundreds of aging and disabled dogs in our sanctuary, helping them age gracefully under qualified supervision.

What are we doing to help aging and disabled cats?

ROLDA is happy to announce that we finally have the architect plans and we can move to next step, to start fundraising for the building of the cat sanctuary.

No sanctuary exists for aging or disabled cats in eastern Romania (a region the equivalent to the entire country of Switzerland) which offers the adequate care these sensitive felines need. This is an animal welfare issue we’ve been trying to address for a long time, so we’re extremely grateful for the opportunity.

Our feline sanctuary will only welcome aging and disabled cats from eastern Romania who have tested negative for contagious diseases, including Toxoplasma and HIV. This condition is enforced to protect the resident cats and their fragile environment. However, ROLDA continues to assist pet owners whose pets need medical attention.
