ROLDA Awareness Movement for children

Children are the future. It is entirely in our power to educate them about compassion, respect, and empathy to assure the communities we are building and the citizens we are raising, are kinder and more caring. Not just toward animals, but to each other and to all the life forms with whom we share our planet.

ROLDA campaigns teach children about treating animals with respect and compassion because they are sentient beings who feel fear and pain, experience loss and love while abused animals suffer physical and emotional trauma that can lead to poor life quality if left untreated.
We like to believe that we help children to become responsible pet owners.

Some while ago, the children from local school have asked for our help to sterilize their dogs because they now understand the importance of sterilization and do not want to see their pets abandoned or killed. It is important to know that according to law, all pets in Romania must be neutered, microchipped and registered. Failure to do so results in fines between €1,100 and €2,200.

Most pet owners cannot afford to sterilize, microchip and register their pets, so some choose to abandon their pets to avoid the fines.
It was a big moment of joy for ROLDA to interact with children who asked our help for their animals!

ROLDA organized various contests (literature, painting) in partnership with local schools and welcome visits from children and their teachers at the small shelter, where they meet the dogs.

Some of the ROLDA programs that address to children are:

Printing and distributing in disadvantaged rural areas a coloring book to help educate children on animal welfare.

The goal is to discourage animal abuse (dogs being chained, beaten, etc).

The coloring book is backed up online by “ABC for kids” a web section in Romanian, where we offer guidance to kids on how to look after their furry buddies responsibly and to offer them (under adult supervision) the correct assistance and care.

The goal is to teach children to become responsible pet owners.

“Speak Toto’s Language” is one of the few brochures we created to educate people (especially children) about dogs’ body language.

The goal is prevent strays aggression on humans of all ages.
