Challenge

ROLDA noticed in the process of our work that as canine reproduction and proliferation reduces, the local feral cat population dramatically increases as competition for food and the danger to the cats posed by the dogs decreases. Furthermore, whilst feral dog populations are often deterred - frequently with violence by some people and businesses - feral cats are typically undisturbed or encouraged, as they help to control the rodent population.

Solution

Galati is home to many disabled or senior cats that require extra care which many owners can't afford, cannot undertake, or in case of homeless cats, essential for any quality of life for the animal. To create a safe and comfortable place for these vulnerable cats, ROLDA intends to build a shelter for old and disabled cats, the first of its kind in the region. The only place where senior and less-abled cats can live out the rest of their natural lives in peace comfort and safety.

Long-Term Impact

Once in the shelter, our cats can socialise with humans and other cats which is essential for the wellbeing of especially an older animal.
