We made it through 2020

What we have achieved in 2020
I am happy and grateful to present to you the numbers that ROLDA has achieved during this tough year, because communication and compassion are the greatest things I can share with ROLDA supporters, besides my love for animals:
We sterilized 321 (162 new rescued dogs and 159 pets from poor local community) 
We provided emergency medical aid for 61 (animals in need)
We offered donated food for 187 (pets from poor local community)
We provided sheltering every day for 650-700 dogs, a few cats and Ben, our resident donkey! 
We fed 1108 (strays and dogs from our shelters) 
International adoptions 100 dogs
We microchipped 270 (162 new rescued dogs and 108 dogs from poor local community)
That's pretty good for a year full of challenges due to lockdowns and restrictions! 
I am even happier to tell you that 2021 will be an extremely precious year for ROLDA - The year we celebrate our 15 years anniversary!
Together, we can accomplish more during 2021!
When ROLDA started, I never imagined how we would be 15 years later, or how fast the years would pass. Together with my team, we were always busy with what happens today, with rescuing and other struggles. 
For big charities, 15 years is a fraction of their long existence, which in some cases dates back 100 years. Considering I have been involved with ROLDA since the beginning and over half my life, for me, these 15 years represents everything: the inception, the hard everyday struggles and the dreams to make ROLDA more amazing. 
The ROLDA mission is to rescue, shelter, rehabilitate and rehome the abused, neglected homeless animals in Romania. But as I have been involved since the beginning, I know what’s behind these words: tears, restless nights, worries, disappointments and sacrifices. And yet, I get goosebumps whenever I think of tiny details like a pair of eyes saying goodbye to me for the last time, my fingers letting go of a grateful paw going to a forever home (who I know I will not see again), the transformation of a dog from a traumatized stray into a great companion. I have lived countless moments like these, too many to count. And every time, it’s different and special.
I feel blessed to enjoy doing my work, which is also a bit of an obsession. ROLDA has shaped me into the person I am today, I have a reason to believe, to fight and hope. And I wonder if, in fact, the whole mission can’t be said more simply: ROLDA gives hope – because hope is what gives our lives a purpose.

Happy 15 Years Anniversary, ROLDA!‍
