Thank you for extending your Christmas spirit to feed hungry dogs in Romania this holiday season! As you celebrate Christmas Day with your loved ones, remember that you helped a dog in need enjoy a warm meal.


That tingling sensation you’re feeling is what they call the “Joy of Giving”

White Angel, a blind, homeless dog has all the reasons to be grateful to ROLDA supporters. Because of you, we could save her life, offer her medical assistance, good sheltering and rehabilitation…and just before last Christmas, she traveled in Norway to start a new life. White Angel and all our dogs have so many reasons to be grateful to generous and committed people like you!

This is White Angel’s poem for you:

No moon, no star, no glittering Christmas tree
Dark moon, dark star, it’s everything dark for me
No frosted cards, no silver bells, no robins in the snow
No Eastern Kings, no holly leaves, no candles burning bright
No laughing eyes, no smiling lips, no package gifts,
No dear old man in red, no fairy queens, no cozy bed


But wait…
This is not the whole…
Though the silent echoes of my night
Through the loss of my precious sight
Down the cold corridors of the shelter space
My world moves to another place

I feel the prickles of the holly green
I trace the glitter of the Christmas scene
I hear a new voice like silver bells
I feel the warmth of new friend met
Fragrance drifts upon the air


I smell and taste my first Christmas fare in a home
I smell the candles, burning low
I sense the season all aglow
I feel safe in new friend’ arms in night
I “see” the star of heavenly light

And once again I hear “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year”!


Thank you and Happy Holidays!
