Zinga was found in the streets of Galati in early 2016. Her rescuers found out she was blind and named her White Angel. Dana started to search for a home for the angel and I was tagged in Rolda facebook by a friend. I just knew that Zinga belonged with me. I already had a blind dog and opened my home and heart to one more. Zinga came to me in november 2016 and I loved her from the day I met her. She is my soulmate, my comfort, my everything. We travel on the mountain together. We are training together and at night she sleeps next to my bed in her own bed. I lost my other blind dog at the age of 13,5 in august 2018. I would never live over the grief without Zinga. She needed me in 2016 and I was one to save her life. In august 2019 she saved me and I hope we have many more years together.
Thank you Rolda

J ai adopté ma chienne Harley en 2015. Chaque jour je decouvre de nouveaux bonheurs elle. Je ne sais pas si elle parfaite mais elle l est a mes yeux. J ai pas vraiment de mot car c est simplement un amour qui est juste devenu mon complément et fait bien plus que remplir ma vie mais est devenue une partie de moi des le premier jour de son arrivée. C etait une evidence.

I adopted Alba a little bit more than one year ago. She was 6 month old a little shy but so cute. She adapted very fast to her new environnement and also to the other animals of the house cat and dogs.

We found The organisation Rolda on a Facebook page when our old dog had left us.
After contact with the swedish persons who work with them, we found our dog Coleen.
In the end of this mount it is 1 year ago she arrived to our home.
The sweetest dog in the world and we are so, so greatful for the organisation Rolda. For all the hard work they do and for all the persons who work with them and give so much of their hearts for the poor dogs.

We found our star in life. Our best friend and companion and we bless them
For that.

Thank you so much!
Lidman family in Sweden.

Ronja (previous name Hilda) has been an amazing companion. Never met a dog with such karisma, bravery, heart and humour to say the least. We have a flock of rescues and she has taken on a roll to be a MOTHER to our youngest and a playful mate to the others, helping them get out of their Shell. She has been easy from the start! Only ”bad” thing is that she likes to chase cars!

After being let down time and time again by the big name animal charities I was beyond happy to stumble across ROLDA. Immediately had my heart set on adopting Leti, the communication with Gemma throughout made the entire process so easy and exciting rather than feeling like a test you're about to fail. Any time I had a question it was answered with extensive backing and documents etc. Leti is now safely with me and I couldn't be happier; she's such a beautiful, soft natured pup. What an amazing charity with such tireless employees who make the process as easy as possible for the adopting person. Would 1000% recommend ROLDA to anyone looking to adopt. Thank you so much ROLDA!!!!

I work with ROLDA since 2008 and they never disappointed me. We #givehope to animals forgotten, abandoned, abused, neglected, in pain - struggling to survive in harsh condition and surrounded by indifference. What better charity I could find to fulfill my dream of helping animals in need on a daily basis?
