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.

ROLDA Inc. Australia is recognised by Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission (ACNC) ABN 38 420 396 060 and Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) ARBN 624 622 859.


Meet our team








ROLDA Inc. helps abused, neglected and homeless animals in Australia and Romania. We rely on volunteers and donations to carry out our vital projects. We also support environmentally friendly education activities and programs with global impact, including post-adoption information and assistance and the protection of rainforest and other wildlife habitats.


Every day, our dedicated staff and international supporters are taking action on many fronts. We work tirelessly today for a healthier and safer tomorrow. We owe it to our voiceless animal friends, to ourselves, to our children, and to the incredible planet we share.


We serve some of the poorest regions of Romania, helping low-income pet owners and communities. By providing essential food, sterilisation and free medical services, we help families keep and look after their beloved companions. Without ROLDA's support, families often have their pets seized and destroyed by the authorities.


ROLDA Inc. works tirelessly to help create a world free from homeless, unwanted animals that suffer terribly on the streets. A world where every dog and cat has the opportunity to form a strong, lifelong bond with their human companion. A world where wild animals are neither exploited, nor abused, and do not have their natural environments destroyed. ROLDA Inc. believes that our future planet must be a healthy planet, and a place where all people and all animals live together in harmony.


ROLDA Inc. works to assure that philanthropy gains the respect and trust of the general public when supporting a cause close to their heart. Donors and prospective donors must have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and initiatives that they are asked to support. We declare that all donors have these rights…

“Animal rescue is heartbreaking work. We have come a long way, but there are still far too many homeless dogs and cats in our community. Since 2002, ROLDA has rescued over 20,000 animals. Our efforts have greatly helped unwanted and homeless animals, allowing us to rehome dogs from our shelters, and to assist people on low incomes to feed and take medical care of their pets and farm animals.


Without ROLDA, our dedicated staff, volunteers and international supporters, these animals would have suffered slow, agonising deaths on the streets and in the fields of our community. ROLDA makes a daily commitment to several hundreds of animals. Every one of us has the power to give hope and to create a more compassionate world. Please donate today and help us continue our vital work.”
