In Romania are estimated 2 ,5 million stray dogs.
Romania is the country with the worst strays overpopulation problem from Europe and one of the worst from the entire World. Unfortunately, this is not a well known fact by the large public because Romania is not a tourist destination, like Spain or Greece are. The few visitors travelling in Romania are shocked by the high number of dogs living on the streets, in packs, many of them behaving “wild” like wolves. In far north, east and south of Romania the situation is dramatic, increased by the severe poverty and high rate of unemployment which generate more abandons of pets, the economic incapacity of people to sterilize and identify by microchipping their pets, even this became, starting 2015, mandatory by law.
That’s where ROLDA team steps in. Located in Galati, south -east of Romania, ROLDA helped over 7,000 animals since its beginning.
Working with Dr. Andrei, ROLDA sponsor the sterilization and microchipping campaigns especially in the rural area, where people’s lack of education and financial possibilities make the situation worse for both animals and community where they live.
In the Galati town and suburbs alone, the officials estimate a population of 15,000-18,000 strays.
Simply put it, ROLDA provides funds and services for social programs to help the community handle their pets responsibly. Will you be part of our solution?
