Volunteer With Us

ROLDA Inc. is dedicated to rescuing neglected, abused and abandoned animals. Our work started in Romania, where the population of stray dogs – estimated at 2.5 million – is one of the largest in the world. Today, we work around the world, striving to create a safer, cleaner, and more compassionate environment for the benefit of all people and animals. In Australia, ROLDA Inc. is on a mission to make sure that not a single adopted animal gets returned to a shelter.

Our Work

ROLDA Inc. helps abused, neglected and homeless animals. We rely on volunteers and donations to carry out our vital projects. Thousands of stray dogs, but also other pets and farm animals are dependent on your generosity and support.

About Us

We rescue and provide medical treatment to animals in a country where animal abuse and neglect is horrendously prevalent - and every day, we make a difference on the front line of animal welfare.
