The campaign is addressed to all the dogs (and cats) located in the Smardan area which are sheltered and looked after by people with low income.
Last autumn, the Association ROLDA Suisse sponsored the cost of 150 sterilizations and microchipping, performed in approx. 3 full working days. We hope that in 2016, we’ll be able to match the amount collected by our generous Swiss supporters and sterilize a total of 300 dogs and cats!
Match your gift today and double our impact for the next sterilization campaign!
Baba is a 75 years old woman from Smardan village who shares her daily bread with her cats and dogs. From her income of 100 EUR/month, she can’t afford to pay the electric bill, medicines and the 3 meals a day for herself.
Often she has to choose but this is not hard for her anymore because her life is already full of resignations and shortages.
The first time she met the ROLDA team, she said “I am not alone. I have the chickens, the cats and dogs with me. They are my kids, they are my life and I am happy to share the bread or whatever I eat with them”. People like Baba are many, heart and soul for their pets but with empty pockets to afford the expensive medical treatments and surgeries.
ROLDA is created also for special people like Baba and her pets, and because of our very generous supporters, we form a united, powerful community.
Help us match the gift raised by the Swiss team for Sterilization Campaign 2016! Let’s raise the funds for extra 150 sterilization (a total of 300 sterilizations) meaning an amount of 3,900 EUR Let’s do it for the animals, for the poor community – none of them have any other hope!
Donors will be listed on this page with their names and the number of sterilization they sponsored.
ROLDA President’s Message May 2023
ROLDA Sverige was founded in 2014 by Lisa, and a group of volunteers dedicated to helping homeless animals live better. The main goals of this association are to help ROLDA Romania: fundraise to keep our shelters functional and rehome dogs from our shelters in Sweden.
The history of ROLDA large shelter read details
In 2004, ROLDA became aware of a horror scenario unfolding on our doorstep. A local steel mill, owned by one of Britain’s and the world’s richest men, Lakshmi Mittal, had become an involuntary home to countless stray dogs desperately seeking shelter and food.
Help for Chick
Chick was found not far from our shelter. She was extremely dehydrated and full of parasites. Flies were feeding on her bloody, cracked skin caused by repeated biting and scratching. She had chewed through most of her fur, leaving her damaged skin exposed to horrible infections which, sadly, had already begun to consume her from the outside in.
