Dear Supporters

Firstly, thank you for visiting the ROLDA website. Your interest and support is what enables us to save lives every day.

Below is a brief overview of the journey I have been on and which has led to ROLDA. The road has been long and difficult. Yet whenever I am near the kennels and can see the difference we have made to the lives of hundreds of dogs, I realize it was all worth it. And that there is still plenty of work to do!
I hope you enjoy reading it.

My best wishes to you,

DANA COSTIN
FOUNDER AND CEO

Meet the Team

ROLDA Team is formed by passionate, hard working people from around the World. The “spark” started in Romania and soon, expanded in USA, Australia and several European countries. It started with people like you, who respect, love and fight for animals’ rights and their welfare.

In Romania, ROLDA Rescue Team is formed by paid staff like dogs caretakers, rescue drivers, veterinaries doctors and veterinary assistants. External services (contractors) include: bookkeeping, auditor, lawyer, labor protection, etc.

Abroad, ROLDA International is formed mostly by volunteers and highly skilled workers who put their knowledge, time and resources in favor of animals that we rescue, shelter, rehabilitate, treat, sterilize and eventually, rehome.

Each ROLDA affiliate from the US, Australia or European countries where we are legally established have a webpage where the activity is presented, including the financial reports and how much money are transferred for Romania projects. This is our way to show maximum transparency to our loyal, incredibly generous supporters.
