Lena Sweden - February 2018
”The ROLDA sanctuaries are run by the devoted Dana Costin together with her co-workers. Today there are more than six hundred dogs, and the donkey Ben, for them to care for. A visit at the large sanctuary is an emotional experience : Glad to see all these dogs saved from their former life, victims of hunger, violence and danger of accidents and diseases - sad to see how much more care they need, and how many of them crave intensively for contact with humans. Rolda's goal is to adopt as many of these dogs as possible to homes in Europe, where they can get love and care and a life worthy a living soul. A lot of work is also done to cure dogs who suffer from injuries and diseases. To save[...]” Read more >>

Stephan Belgium, March 2016
”To shelter more than 600 dogs you need to have a good notion of organization and responsibility but more than that also a sense of respect for living souls.Yes, ROLDA is great hope for many of them to have once the chance to find a deserved peaceful life. Support ROLDA today and you will have the feeling like me to have saved a life from the death.” Read more >>
Sandra ROLDA Sverige board, visited ROLDA in 2012 and October 2014
”TI got off the train in Galati and Dana picked me up, she drove me to the shelter and it was so nice to catch up with her since it was almost 2 years than my last visit. At the shelter I was greeted with a lot of wagging tails and kisses. ROLDA dogs are truly happy dogs and you can see that they are well taken care of because otherwise they wouldn’t be so happy and search for attention. But with that said we need to remember that a life in a kennel is not a life for a dog and we need to work harder to get these lovely dogs to their forever home. Dana showed me the vet clinic and all the improvements that have been done since last time I visited. The sun went down and Dana showed me[...]” Read more >>
Yelena Switzerland, adopter, visited ROLDA in September 2014
”I enjoyed it very much, to see the dogs, cuddle most of them, it was a little hard to see the big shelter for me, but then I realised how lucky they were to have you and to be there with you! Being with you, means that they will find their forever home very soon, and in the meantime they are safe and taken care of! I’m amazed of all the things you’ve done for the dogs! They are all so happy, sweet and full of love, like they forgot all the pain they went through in the street! And I don’t have enough words to describe how it makes me feel. You give hope and love to these dogs, it’s just amazing…” Read more >>

”I cannot speak highly enough of ROLDA; the battles you’re facing on a daily basis would be too much for a lot of people and they would just turn their backs and give up, but the truly amazing animal angels of ROLDA put the needs of the neglected, hungry, frightened, injured and beaten-down street dogs first, every time. I buy lottery tickets in the hope of winning a huge amount of money – to give to brilliant organizations such as ROLDA because THEY are making our world better. Thank you so much for everything you do!You are a real angel!”



Under Gift Aid, the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will usually top up every £1 given to ROLDA UK with 25p. So our charity could receive £250 for every £1,000 you donate at no extra expense to you. For donations to be eligible for Gift Aid, the donor needs to be a UK taxpayer and will have had to have paid an amount of income/capital gains tax equal to or higher than the amount claimed by all charities and CASCs from HM Revenue & Customs (taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify). This means, for ROLDA UK to claim £2.50 on a £10 donation, the sponsor must have paid at least £2.50 in tax. Gift Aid cannot be claimed on company donations.
