Your legacy in action

The legacy you create now will help ensure that the difference you’ve made for so many animals in need today can continue on for the animals of tomorrow.

That’s especially true if you choose to designate your gift for general use.
Doing so means that over 1000 animals that rely on ROLDA for care or emergency aid (food, medicines) on any given day will feel your generosity. So will the hundreds of community pets saved from death every year through social programs (including education, free sterilizations, helping seniors with pets), and their grateful families helped when they struggle financially.
You can choose to designate your gift for specific use.

ROLDA relies on the public generosity to be able to continue its work, all the donations currently received go to rescue injured, neglected dogs, paying for their medical bills, food and sheltering and also helping the pets from the poor communities. Since ROLDA came into existence, the capital projects (building the shelters, buying our rescue van and equipment and major repairs) were made with major donor gifts and legacies. When you donate for a building (capital) project, you can name it in memory of someone or to honour a dear friend or family member.


Some of the capital projects we could start up from legacy gifts are:
⇨ Continue to support rescuers and injured animals in war in Ukraine
⇨ Deliver support to small charities across Romania in danger to close down
⇨ Help animals during emergencies (natural disasters e.g. eartkquake from Syria, man made disasters like war from Ukraine)
⇨ Become a hub that helps animals in East of Europe (ex communist block) by taking animals into the new center PawzUp (please read below about it) or by distributing small grants to rescuers who save animals

One of the most amazing capital projects we could start up from legacy gifts is PawzUp Center which will include:
• A sanctuary for abandoned horses in danger to become victims of the illegal meat trade
• A sanctuary for rescued donkeys
• An indoor adoption centre for dogs and cats from where the local community can adopt or where they can volunteer
• A rehabilitation zone for dogs that need help to trust people again
• A therapy center where kids with special problems and seniors from retirement homes will interact with our animals.

Now its a great time to choose a part of the center (a kennel, a room) or even an entire building to sponsor and name it in memory or to honor a dear someone.

Where we see ROLDA 10 years from now on?

Considering that the stray population is decreasing, so we expect improvised shelters will slowly disappear. Romania will need spotless animal facilities and with a source of funding like legacies, ROLDA can use our vast accumulated expertise and put at work our knowledge to serve the local community. Our valuable experience includes: shelter design and management, disease control strategies, dogs behaviour and caring for large animals.

Regardless of what gift option you choose to help animals in need, your donation can be used for whatever purpose you choose. This is your gift to the future, and we have the highest respect for your wishes. To ensure that we can comply with your wishes, please contact ROLDA team at before executing legal documents containing a specific use for your gift.

Thank you for your extraordinary commitment to the animals.
Thank you, too, for your kind and generous heart and spirit.
