Important note regarding adoptions

Due to Norwegian current regulations, the import of strays into the country has been banned. For the moment, you can’t adopt a dog. Our Norwegian team contested the Norwegian rules to EFTA and we are waiting for their decision.

ROLDA’s founder invites you to find out how we started and why

“The leader of ROLDA Gatehunder fra Romania is Hege, the heart and soul of this small but special charity.We live together difficult moments and that’s when real friends stay.I have the priviledge to consider Hege one of the most amazing people I was lucky to know. Initially, she adopted a ROLDA dog , then a second. When she noticed that an injustice happened to our charity, she refused to keep mouth shut and joined me in a “war” which became hers too, only because she is one of those (rare) persons ready to sacrifice personal comfort for justice.Hege visited ROLDA several times and in Romania or online, we shared hard moments, enjoyed victories, we cried and laugh together. Hege is a tigresse, fighting for what she cares for, no matter the consequences. She is balanced, have well documented arguments, she is smart, genuine and kind. What better person I could hope for the Norwegian branch, what better person to represent ROLDA name in Norway now and for as long as we will be on this Earth?Matilde joined our team a few years ago and she work tireless doing multitasking activities to help ROLDA dogs. Since 2012, Corinna, Marte, Merethe as well as all other Norwegian supporters who trust in what we do, enable us to continue becoming better, every year a little more. Due to the fact live animals import is (abusively) banned in Norway (and Norwegians don’t protest against this!), we can’t rehome anymore our beautiful dogs there, but we continue to fundraise in Norway to support the shelters and the campaigns we run in Romania. I hope you enjoy reading it.

My best wishes to you,



“Jeg har kjent Dana (grunnleggeren av ROLDA);i flere år nå, og hjelper henne bla. med å oversette tekster til norsk. Hun er en fantastisk dame med det største hjertet som fines. Jeg stoler uforbeholdent på hennes dømmekraft og vet at hun har gjort det umulige mulig gang på gang. Verden trenger flere mennesker som henne! Jeg hjelper ROLDA med oversettelse av tekst fra engelsk til norsk fordi de gjør et utrolig viktig arbeid for hjemløse dyr i Romania. Det er ikke alltid man har mulighet til å støtte alle organisasjoner man gjerne skulle hjulpet økonomisk, så det er godt å kunne bidra på andre måter!”

Rede Furniture provides a part of the turnover to those who really need it. We have chosen to help, among other organization, also ROLDA – a charity that helps the voiceless furry friends in need. This means that for each product sold we provide a contribution to ROLDA and the 700 dogs who live in the charity’ private shelters.
