ROLDA s Big Dream
One of ROLDA’s biggest dreams is to establish a therapy center (as part of PawzUp Center) where rescued animals to serve the most neglected humans in our communities: the seniors, in order to provide companionship and joy for the elderly who have lost their loved one, or are on their own. We have been generously remembered in our supporters’ wills after they have passed. What better legacy than to continue to be an animal savior for eternity?
In Romania, there are 3.4 millions elderly people who often feel useless, alone, depressed.
