Discover our small but “big heart” team

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,



UK Coordinator
I started volunteering for ROLDA UK in 2015 and am now involved with all aspects, including all supporter enquiries, adoption and transportation arrangements, web development and social media! We are still very new in the UK so lots of exciting changes are being made to help raise donations and find adopters for our lovely dogs. I’m a biology graduate with a background in teaching, coaching and mentoring, along with financial services. I live in Manchester with my partner and our toddler. Life can be hectic but we love it!

I have always been an enormous animal lover, dogs being my absolute favourite animal of all. I have three gorgeous rescue dogs, one of which I adopted from ROLDA in 2012. I was so bowled over by the fantastic rescue that Dana had built up from literally nothing. I followed the rescue over the years, feeling frustrated that I couldn’t do more to help them. My ROLDA rescue, Mia is such an amazing girl, I couldn’t bare to think of other dogs like her suffering on the streets.

I want you to know that I am really grateful for Lana. You have looked after her brilliantly and she is such a joy. I know she spent over 5 years in the shelter, but she has fitted into my life so perfectly. She was a brilliant hostess and was of course very spoiled throughout the period. Thank you Dana – without your team, she would not have had the confidence for this…she absolutely shone.
