ROLDA Inc. is the arm of ROLDA, an international charity established for the protection and rehabilitation of homeless animals. Over the last 15 years, we extended our reach beyond Romania and are now active in the UK, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, the US, and Australia where we fight for animal rights, promote animal welfare through education programs and support groups to encourage animal adoptions and rehabilitation.

In Australia

Since 2014, ROLDA Inc is raising awareness in Australia about the catastrophic conditions abandoned animals face in Romania. We believe every animal deserves another chance. We campaign tirelessly for animal rights.

In Romania

We started our journey in Romania (Central Europe) in 2006 with the aim to solve the appalling problem of the country’s estimated 2.5 million population of stray dogs.


ROLDA never put to sleep healthy dogs. We fight, together with the dog, for his life. If there is a medical solution and if the dog has even a little chance to recover, we act.


ROLDA provides shelter from the moment a dog is adopted up until the dog goes to their forever home.


In a country with one of the worst overpopulations of strays, failure is not an option!
