Are there benefits to being in the ROLDA’s Legacies Society?

The biggest benefit, of course, is that you’ll be helping animals in need for generations to come. But you’ll also receive newsletters and updates from us, and Legacies Society’s Friends get a 10 percent discount on ROLDA online store, along with free shipping. By sharing your intention to give now a gift in your will to ROLDA, up to 5000 US$ will be immediately released to our charity by a Swiss group of donors, which will enable us to buy nutrition food for starving strays, improve our housing facilities for animals in need, expand our shelters, reach more dogs in need of medical emergency aid.

Your legacy in action

The legacy you create now will help ensure that the difference you’ve made for so many homeless pets today can continue on for the homeless pets 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 in shelters every year through social programs (including sterilization, microchip), and the grateful families helped. And so many more will benefit from your gift as well:
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 exists, the capital projects (building the shelters, buying rescue van and equipment, 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’s or to honor a dear friend or family member.

medium term

Some of ROLDA’s medium-term projects include:
• Building a sanctuary for disabled, senior cats
• Equip the veterinary clinic to serve the small animals in need from rural community.

long term

One of ROLDA’s long term projects is very ambitious:
Buying additional land to build the PawzUp Center which will include:
• A sanctuary for horses abandoned because they can’t be used as working animals, in danger to become victims of the illegal trade meat;
• A sanctuary for rescued donkeys;
• An indoor adoption center 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, seniors from retirement homes will interact with our animals

Where we see ROLDA 10 years from now on?

Considering that strays population is decreasing, assuming that improvised shelters will slowly disappear, in 10 years from now, Romania will need spotless animal facilities and with a source of funding like legacies, ROLDA can use the vast expertise accumulated and put at work our knowledge to serve the local community. Our valuable assets include: shelter design and management, disease control strategy, experienced team with knowledge about dogs behavior 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.

Our slogan is…

Because every animal deserves to be respected!
