About Lolita and ROLDA
People with big hearts DO NOT forget! Back in 2010, Marie read an article about ROLDA in Swiss Dog Magazine and she decided that she can’t remain indifferent to Romanian dogs’ plight.

The host/presenter of the conference was Lolita, the well-known Swiss activist for animals, who instantly accepted Marie’s invitation and showed her support from the very beginning. One of the conference sponsors was Hill’s.
More than 3 years passed until the fall, of 2013 when international public opinion was shocked by the new Romanian strays’ law and its terrible, predictable consequences.
Lolita decided to actively help some of these endangered souls and to also set up an example: We might not be able to save them all, but UNITED, we can save at least some lucky ones.
Lolita raised the funds for transporting 24 dogs in Switzerland and arranged the publicity and the logistics. She and her volunteers’ team (Anne, Christine and Mikael) as well as partner shelters assist the dogs until safely adopted in forever, individual homes.
