THE ROLDA TEAM

Hello!

 

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
