More about ROLDA UK

ROLDA UK works to help ROLDA Romania carry out its vital work focusing on rescue, rehabilitation, sheltering, sterilisation, social programmes and education. With a strict no-kill policy ROLDA needs help to ensure these poor animals are given the home they deserve, and with an estimated 2.5 million stray dogs that's a huge task.

Compared to anywhere else in Europe, Romania has by far the worst stray overpopulation issue, but the situation receives far less attention because Romania is not a major tourist destination. There are no outsiders to see the pain endured by these abandoned and abused animals. Your old car donation could help ROLDA to save these animals and control the growing stray population.

The charity started when Romanian founder Dana Costin found an abandoned, badly injured, German Shepard in her local park. After nursing this animal back to health she set about rescuing and re-homing any strays she could. After attending a Dog’s Trust shelter management course in London in 2005, ROLDA build their first set of kennels, protecting many dogs from the bitter Romania winter. Dana has since, with help from the largest steel producer in Europe, organised the build of a large, modern shelter, capable of housing 700 dogs.

So far ROLDA has made huge steps forward managing this animal crisis - the charity has sterilized more than 9800 homeless dogs, with 70% of those caught being rehabilitated and nearly half of those being adopted. But their work is ongoing - there are many more dogs to re-home, thousands more dogs to catch humanely and sterilize and numerous mouths to feed. Your old car donation can help to fund all of ROLDA's incredible work.
