Leaving a gift in your Will promises to transform the animals World the way YOU dream it to be.
Most of Romanian animals live through a non-stop emergency situation. Today, ROLDA is concerned with alleviating their suffering and saving lives. But we must think about the years to come, as well.
Looking ahead, your legacy could mean the capability not just to respond to emergencies but also to educate people and to change the culture that allows so many animal atrocities to happen. Your legacy could reduce the emergencies. Permanently.
A gift in your Will to ROLDA ensures time, skills, effort and patience will be spent for many years into the future in order to give the animals a chance to live peacefully in their present time. Make a gift in your Will and join us on this complex but essential mission.

Read Helen’s story: An inspiring commitment to a safer future for animals in need
Helen was born in Adelaide in October 1938, but her ancestors were from Scotland. Helen was a brilliant and savvy person, years ahead of her time, and an avid animal lover who would dedicate her life to a beautiful cause.
Helen’s goal was to leave as much of her life savings as possible to those who help animals in need. She became very frugal, making her and her husband’s clothes and doing her own DIY.
She was truly dedicated to making the world a better place for suffering animals. Sadly Helen passed away in January 2021 and we were honored to be notified of Helen’s intention to leave a generous gift to ROLDA.
Her dedication to animals lives on in our tireless work to rescue abused and abandoned stray dogs in Romania.
We are helping
A country with 2.5 million
2nd largest urban community
One of the poorest region
of the country
17000 stray dogs
in Galati city alone
7000 feral cats (and their
number grows alarmingly)
1000 horses and donkeys living
nearby, at risk of being abandoned in any moment
You can leave a gift in your Will in several different ways
Which is best for you?
While there are many ways to give to ROLDA Inc, every contribution is crucial to our life-changing work in the community. Some of the most effective ways to support us through a bequest include:
A Residuary refers to the act of gifting the remainder of your estate after all gifts have been dispersed to specific individuals or organisations in accordance with your Will. A Residuary could include any funds or property left over after your chosen loved ones receive gifts, and any administrative costs or funeral expenses are settled. For example, a person may decide to gift properties to their loved ones, use their personal savings to pay for the costs of a funeral service, and gift any remaining personal savings to a charitable organisation.
This can include a percentage of your General Estate (i.e. all the funds, properties or assets against your Will), or a percentage of the residuary once gifts and other costs have been processed in accordance with your wishes.
A Pecuniary Gift is a specific contribution of cash funds. An example might be that you choose to leave $1,000 to support a sterilization campaign for pets from poor rural communities.
This type of bequest involves giving a particular piece of real estate, specific shares or other items, like artworks.
The main benefits of Testamentary Trusts are their ability to protect assets and to reduce the tax paid by beneficiaries from income earned from the inheritance and created by a Will. It helps provide a greater level of control over the assets of the Will.
A Testamentary Trust does not come into effect until after the death of the person making the Will. At this time, the specified deceased estate property is transferred to a trustee, who holds the assets on trust for the benefit of the beneficiaries.
If you are responsible for administering a Testamentary Trust, you should consider seeking expert legal advice, from a lawyer that deals with and has great experience in the area of Testamentary Trusts.
