ROLDA’s response to the evidence against her

DANA COSTIN HAS NOT ONCE DENIED THE ALLEGATIONS OF FRAUD OR THE ABUSE OF THE DOGS IN HER CARE . INSTEAD HER RESPONSE IS LONG SLANDEROUS STATEMENTS THAT DO NOT DEAL AT ANY LEVEL WITH THE EVIDENCE ON THIS SITE. SHE DOES THIS TO DEFLECT ATTENTION AWAY FROM HER BY FOCUSING ON THE PERSONAL LIVES OF OTHERS.

HER COMMENTS IN BLACK, OURS IN RED. (Source: http://whohurtsromaniandogs.org/?p=199) or click here to read Dana’s latest response via PDF

……………………………………………………….

The conspiration between RAA(Kendra Pinder and Chrissy Phillips) and RAR, Nancy Janes to build a website to destroy ROLDA started over a month ago, and I have proofs emails they exchanged to decide:

And yet Dana had all this information but still to this day has not provided any verifiable evidence to refute those documents

This website, www.wheredidmydonationgo.org  was started by many people to expose the frauds and thefts by Dana Costin/ROLDA. It was a well-known fact that the website was under construction – nothing was a secret.

which Romanian charities are on the black list, that for the moment they must focus only to ROLDA and leave the other charities they dislike for later, etc.
What Blacklist?

Only ROLDA is accused of thefts and lies on this site www.wheredidmydonationgo.org .  ROLDA’s thefts have kept the other good charities and NGO’s in Romania from getting the funds they so desperately need for the animals.
Initially the website was meant to be on Moonfruit, but was deleted when reported.
Yes indeed it was, Dana would prefer to do this than provide evidence to disprove the sites contents. Infact Costin had the Moonfruit site deleted before the documents were even loaded onto the site…What does that tell you about the fear Dana has about the site getting out. The Moonfruit sites were free, hence why as with any free site you just report them and they are removed. There is no obligation to the sites creator.   Now it is on:   www.wheredidmydonationgo.org



Starting 23 August (after the website named at that time: thetruthofrolda.moonfruit was deleted by Moonfruit admins) –Kendra Pinder and Nancy Janes bought two new domains wheredidmydonationgo.org and .com on an American website. Meanwhile they start begging people to write “testimonial” against ROLDA. They begged Serbanoiu Mircea, with no result. Also few people from Facebook.
Indeed 1  website www.wheredidmydonationgo.org was bought and paid for from someones personal credit card, the truth about Rolda needed to be up there for the public, for their donators to see. This was the only way to stop Dana from having the sites removed before even they were built. Again what does this tell you about Dana?

Kendra does not even know Serbanoiu for her to beg him anything. We are sure Serbanoiu if asked can also confirm this.

Nancy Janes asked Mr. Serbanoiu for a testimonial for www.wheredidmydonationgo.org , as Mr. Serbanoiu is the person who contacted Nancy back in 2004 -2005 era to tell her that Dana Costin and ROLDA were frauds.  Nancy met Mr. Serbanoiu again at the “Lords of the Street” event that was held by RARF in the Bucharest in 2008.  She apologized to him for being so naive and for not listening to him about ROLDA fraud.  Mr. Serbanoiu did not do a testimonial, but many others did on www.wheredidmydonationgo.org

REGARDING THE TESIMONIALS

When reading now the online website, from all the people writing about ROLDA only 2 volunteers visited us during this year: Anja Stein and Sarah England who adopted Athos. Chrissy Phillips who used our dogs to build a name for her charity wasn’t at ROLDA since 2008 and I had no connection with Nancy Janes since 2006!

Interesting, so Dana believes that anyone who helps Rolda dogs is using Rolda?  Dana is once again lying. Siri  from Norway also visited the ROLDA shelters in 2011.  Siri has a testimonial as well on www.wheredidmydonationgo.org .Numerous ROLDA donors and those who have worked with her have contacted Nancy such as Mr. A, Christina, Dr. Stone, Dr. Olsen, Geo, Chrissy, Anja, Mirela, Daniela, Corina, Oana, Kim, Susan, Gloria, Martine, to mention just a few.  Dana Costin called Nancy in August of 2010 asking that she not tell people of her experience with ROLDA.   That’s after 2006.   Please read Nancy Janes testimonial on www.wheredidmydonationgo.org.  

This was Chrissy testimonial after visiting ROLDA:
http://rolda.org/International-Volunteers-Testimonials/romania-animal-aid-testimonial.html
She wrote this herself, not forced by anyway but obviously her interests in present made her thoughts and impressions change dramatically.
When being at ROLDA for few days with Janet, one of her friends – Chrissy was lazy and didn’t bother to be actively involved in my daily activities, preferring to switch places with Janet as the hot weather caused her discomfort.
Unfortunately Chrissy like so many others, out of fear what will happen to the dogs in Costins care, and unaware that all of the funds for the large shelter were being provided (thinking that it was perhaps lack of funding that caused ROLDA to treat the dogs poorly) wrote a positive testimonial, but it does get to a point when you realise that the dogs would be far better out of her care. Please note how Costin talks about the very people who have donated and helped her so much…….this is a pattern of Dana Costin.  Slandering those who tried to help her once they realize that she was conning them.

Now we could go on all day answering this nonsense, but instead what we will do is ask one simple question to Dana’s absolute lies… WHERES YOUR EVIDENCE DANA TO PROVE THAT THE www.wheredidmydonationgo.org INFORMATION IS FALSE?   WHY ARE YOU NOT ANSWERING THE QUESTIONS POSED IN THAT WEBSITE?

Nancy Janes too made a good testimonial about ROLDA back in 2004. Only saw what Dana wanted her to see – only heard what Dana wanted her to hear.   Didn’t hire a translator until 2006.  Please read Nancy Janes testimonial on www.wheredidmydonationgo.org

Catherine Baroun is a friend of Chrissy Phillips from RAA and she was rude with ROLDA staff during her free stay at the cottage. I still kept my correspondence where I try to be civilized despite the fact she came on purpose only to harass me, my staff and find negatives things related to our animal work.
Catherine Baroun attacked and pushed away Flori, ROLDA caretaker and people who met Flori know her and how delicate she is.
She explains in her report how things should be done differently but she conveniently forget to say that we saved a puppy from the village which she left in our care, promising she will adopt him. Puppy name is Cabanos and we adopted him in Holland after Catherine didn’t kept the promise of giving him a decent home.
If our shelter was so bad, why handing us a puppy to look after?!
Anja Stein wrote this report after she stayed 5 weeks and was all the time involved in daily activities:
http://rolda.org/International-Volunteers-Testimonials/anja-stein-germany.html
After meeting on Facebook Nancy Janes and the gang, who couldn’t stand the fact ROLDA received a favourable report, she changed her testimonial…it’s something like “I saw this and liked”…than somebody from the other side of the planet saying” no, you didn’t see right”….and Anja concluding “yes, no I didn’t saw right”.
These are the kind of people Nancy Janes bring together.
Unbalanced people, with serious emotional problems easy to manipulate.

Please see Catherine’s testimonial about her time at the ROLDA shelter at www.whereismydonation.com .  We all know how Dana Costin treats Flori, yet now she has concern for her “delicate” worker whom Dana hires to care for up to 60 dogs by herself?  

We never thought the report from Anja was favourable.  It told that there were not enough employees to care for the dogs.  The dogs needed exercise.   Since the fraudulent con artist  Dana Costin took money from donors to help the large shelter dogs, why did she not simply hire more people to care for the dogs at the Large Shelter, or the Small Shelter? It was not known by Anja at the time that Dana was not using the donated funds for the Large Shelter, and Anja made a plea for volunteers to go to help the Large Shelter.  

Anja Stein is a former secretary who had 11 years relation with a married man, her boss. Because this person was tired of her after a while, she became an alcoholic. This dark period of her life last 15 years! I wouldn’t brought this detail in public attention but I am sick how Anja Stein now play the moral coordinator discussing others private life!
She said she wanted to help ROLDA, help the animals and she said she wants to be Dana’ friend. Being invited to Dana’s mom apartment to check her emails and I was stunned few weeks later, when Anja was back home in Germany- she accused Dana for breaking into her computer?!?!?! When she was asked to explain her accusation, she said she is sorry but wasn’t paying enough attention to a text which she didn’t understood…and for this reason she thought Dana broke in her computer….
Anja Stein now promotes RAR because probably found in Nancy Janes a partner in Bachus’ discussions.
  Once again…..this is how Dana Costin speaks of people who donated to her own pocket……believing the funds were going to help the dogs.

For the record: Dana Costin is a fraudulent con artist who seduced Merritt Clifton, a married man, and left with him to go to the beach in San Diego, CA, leaving Merritt’s wife at the conference,and Dana’s severely ill boyfriend, Rolando Cepraga to lie in the hotel bedroom in Rancho Santa Fe, California.   Dana Costin is a fraudulent con artist who seduced a man from the UK and stole almost $100,000 from him for land that actually cost less than $1400.  Dana Costin is a fraudulent con artist who has allowed puppies to be born and suffer on the streets of Galati because she stole the funds that were to be used for spay/neuter.  All of this information is well documented with evidence on the website: www.wheredidmydonationgo.org

 
MR. A. TOPIC

A. is a British supporter who donated to ROLDA periodically and also sent the funds for the purchasing of the land where the big shelter is now. As the contracts states, the land was purchased back in 2006 on benefit of the Romanian animals.
My private life is not a subject of public discussion even if evil, stupid and sick alcoholic minds make efforts in this direction.

Surprisingly – and I address again to people using their own intelligence- how a “wealthy business man” needs 5 years after this land purchasing someone like Nancy Janes to “defend” him…He is not the kind of person to make circus and mess in other lives, but Nancy Janes is!!!! Especially when she has an “unsolved” obsession.

How low a person like Nancy Janes can be, to use someone past because she fails making her own charity grow and becomes green of envy seeing others growing faster?!

If Mr. A. would wanted in all these years to say anything to Dana or ROLDA would have said directly, not via Nancy Janes….so this is at least weird if not another revenge tool.

ROLDA is grateful to Mr. A. for helping purchase the land .
As can be seen in Mr. A’s emails he was not happy with Dana.  Due to the pain and humiliation she caused him he himself chose to get her out of his life in every way.   It is clear that Costin is guilty of this fraud.  Dana Costin infact made a number of threats to many of the contributors of this website, should we post the Mr. A land con deal by her on www.wheredidmydonationgo.org.   THE LAND FRAUD INFORMATION GOT OUT. SHE NEVER ONCE DENIED IT, SHE HAS NOT EVEN DENIED IT HERE… , Mr. A told Nancy Janes that Dana had sent him an email “Missing You” to which he did not respond.  He is disgusted by Dana Costin and wants nothing to do with a fraudulent con artist such as her.  

Please see Mr. A’s  words on the website:  www.wheredidmydonationgo.org

Nancy Janes story regarding this matter changed from “Mr. A. didn’t want to sue Dana because his new girlfriend didn’t want that”….to “Mr.A. Romanian lawyer couldn’t sue Dana”.
 Both of these facts are true. Suing the fraudulent con artist Dana Costin would require Mr. A to fight a legal battle in Galati, Romania for 3 – 4 years. This is the reason that many many others have not sued Dana – and she knows it.  Please see the Nancy Janes testimonial on www.wheredidmydonationgo.org.  Mr. A’s girlfriend did not want to have the past brought into their new lives either.

RECEIPS USE FOR “LUXURY”, ETC

Copies and originals of the receipts from RAR money were sent directly to Nancy Janes.
Because I knew she hired a translator, which I met in Galati and hand the documents periodically, I trusted Nancy Janes that she will not fake these documents in any fashion even after many years.
Dana is contradicting herself.  In 2006 she categorically claimed when Nancy questioned her that she never spent a penny on personal items.  On Dana’s Facebook page, once she knew this website, www.wheredidmydonationgo.org was being published, she changed her story to “Nancy knew I was spending money on personal items”.Nancy became suspicious of Dana Costin and ROLDA after an expose’ by SPCA Romania was posted on the internet accusing ROLDA of money laundering and theft. It was after this posting in October of 2005 that doubts about ROLDA credibility began surfacing on the internet, although Nancy Janes had already heard rumors to that effect.  Mr. Mircea Serbaniou, now the founder of FPAM in Romania, had emailed Nancy back in 2004 – 2005 era to tell Nancy of the fraudulant suspicions he had of ROLDA……details were just too hard to ignore.When Nancy hired a young lady, Ralu in Galati, to go over the receipts in December of 2005, 3 years after having started to donate to ROLDA  (Rory and Nancy Janes began donating to ROLDA in 2002, and formed Romania Animal Rescue as a 501 (c) 3 in the United Stated for ROLDA in 2003), Dana Costin began to cut the tops off the receipts that were submitted . After Ralu was hired, our Romanian translator who lived in Galati, Dana started cutting off the list of items purchased so that Ralu could not see what the funds from RAR were used to purchase.
There are a number of receipts listed on www.wheredidmydonationgo.org  outlining the thefts of Costin for the Romania Animal Rescue funds, and Romania Animal Rescue has over 500 more receipts for which there is no accountability for expenditure by ROLDA.   No receipts were issued to Romania Animal Rescue by Dana Costin for most of the year 2005…..thus there would be even more outstanding receipts had we received them.

The weird thing is that she had no complaints between 2003-2006 during the time ROLDA and RAR worked together, but suddenly after we split she felt the need of making a big fuss and invent stories. Plus one time Nancy Janes complaint 8000 US$ were stolen, than 6000 US$…than 24000US$.
 This is simply not true.  In 2005 Nancy resigned as the President of Romania Animal Rescue because she could no longer work with ROLDA as Dana Costin was not being forthcoming with receipts and her honesty and integrity were coming into question. A couple of weeks later, Rolando Cepraga, Dana’s long time boyfriend and the animal lover of ROLDA, died.  Nancy was worried about the fate of the ROLDA animals, and decided to start helping ROLDA once again in November, 2005.  In December of 2005 Ralu was hired to go over receipts submitted by ROLDA to RAR.  This is when Dana Costin started cutting off the list of items purchased so that the Romanian translator could not report to Nancy Janes what Costin was using RAR funds to purchase. Nancy Janes received these receipts in May of 2006 while in Galati for a disastrous spay event that was ruined by ROLDA.   Romania Animal Rescue split with ROLDA in May of 2006, and documented email evidence is provided in: https://www.wheredidmydonationgo.org/evidence-rar-e…ion-with-rolda

Well, Dana, all those funds listed above and more were stolen from RAR by you.  You stole alot of money from RAR – never gave accounting for many many months of your expenditures, but we have the bank statements to show that you were taking money out of the RAR account.   Now what about Merritt saying Nancy “micro-managed” you?   This must mean the Merritt Clifton, the Trustee for ROLDA US,does not check receipts at all…..and he knew of the things you did to RAR.

 

This happens when alcohol, strong drugs, prescribed pills against “daily depression” as Nancy Janes said herself are combined  in this woman leftovers brain to hurt people and animals in a poor country!

RAR has spayed/neutered over 14,000 animals in Romania, a country that Nancy Janes has no heritage in, simply through the kindness of  donors, vets, and actions. We have sent over 300 animals for adoption into great homes in the USA.  We have provided food, helped build the ROLDA shelter, secured funds to build the ROLDA puppy shelter…..We dare say they have helped thousands if not millions of animals in Romania.  Did you know that each spayed female dog and her offspring and their offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in 6 years.   Yes – RAR’s programs have helped millions of animals.  Romania Animal Rescue has worked with and helped 20 charities in Romania and continue to do so as our funding allows. This funding is spent on intermittent spayathons and for regular monthly clinics such as the one that RAR and RAA both fund every single month in Iasi where 50 dogs are sterilised, and monthly spay/neuters in Tecuci where up to 100 animals are sterilized.   We even did a spay event at Fiducia shelter where 144 dogs were sterilized – dogs ROLDA claims to its donors that it helps.

We all wish we could do more to help the animals living in Romania, and now we would like to see that the funds that are donated to Romanian charities in Romania actually help the dogs that are living there, not the fraudulant con artist Dana Costin.   We are not focusing on exposing ROLDA so that donors will give funds to RAR, we need donors to give their funds to good Romanian charities that actually help the animals.  Charities such as Help Labus in Galati, GIA in Bucharest, Nature Heritage in Popesti, APAM in Arad, ADOR in Botosani, Hope 4 Animals in Craiova, Viktoria Tocca’s charity in Cluj/Napoca, Save the Dogs in Cernovada, Fiducia Shelter in Reghin.  These charities REALLY help the animals……they need funds to go to the animals.  Folks, suffice it to say, if you want to help Dana Costin buy stuff for herself, go ahead and donate to her.  It’s your money and you can do whatever you want to with it. 
FINANCIAL REPORT 2006

It is normal that the charity financial report for 2006 NOT to have included months January and February as we got the registration certificate in February and the accountability was started in March. It’s funny when being blinded by hate, this gang of loosers can’t see the facts!
IF THIS WERE TRUE, THEN WHY DID SHE FILE EXPENSES …IF THIS WAS NORMAL NOT TO FILE FOR THIS POINT OF TIME THEN WHY FILE EXPENSES BUT NOT INCOME…SORRY DANA THIS MAKES NO SENSE

 

Why did you file expenses, fraudulent con artist Dana Costin, if you were not keeping records? What about the $4000 from the RAR bank account for March that you did not claim?

After reading all the posts coming out directly from sick brains, people ask themselves why Dana Costin is not in prison, why she is not at least investigated….if they publicly ask the web creators, Nancy Janes and Kendra Pinder – the response is stunning: :it’s not that important, but important is not to give ROLDA any donations”
YET WHAT YOU WILL NOTICE THROUGHOUT DANA’S STATEMENTS, SHE HAS NOT ONCE DENIED SHE HAS DONE ALL THAT HAS BEEN PROVEN ON THIS SITE www.wheredidmydonationgo.org  AGAINST HER…NOW DOESNT THAT SEEM A TAD ODD TO ANYONE?

Well, we wish to see the fraudulant Dana Costin in prison – the dogs will rejoice at their chance of finally receiving some much needed true help.   If and when Dana goes, the animals will be cared for by Help Labus in Galati as long as the funding to them is provided by YOU former ROLDA donors

If you didn’t noticed already all people working or having a connection in a positive way to ROLDA are “in love with Dana”, or “corrupt”, or blind and stupid…they invented a story even about and against the steel plant who sponsored with a huge investment the dogs welfare…hey, wouldn’t be this reason why they are so pissed of ROLDA existence?! Maybe our prosperous way and the fact we rebuild old kennels to give our shelters a new healthy look are tormenting their sick minds!
NO, BECAUSE DANA HAS MADE THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS FROM GOOD HEARTED DONATORS, SHE HAS LIED TO THEM, SHE HAS DEFRAUDED THEM …DANA IS A FRAUDSTER, A LIAR AND A THIEF, WHICH SHE HAS NOT EVEN DENIED

While promoting testimonials from people saying that the rusty kennels need renovation, when we start the rebuilding work ROLDA is still accused that we collect money…how to be able to do a quality work without investments?!
NO DANA, THOSE PHOTOS ARE OF HOW YOU ALLOWED DOGS TO STAY IN VILE CONDITIONS…YOU ALLOWED THE DEATHS OF THESE ANIMALS, YOU ALLOWED THE ILL TREATMENT OF THESE ANIMALS.

 

Arcelor Mittal pays for the infrastructure costs of the Large Shelter kennels.  The fraudulent con artist Dana Costin does not need to fund raise for this.  She allowed these kennels to deteriorate into this condition, as ROLDA manages the shelter, even though Dana had thousands of funds coming in for this shelter.   Nancy Janes, when working with Dana and ROLDA, sent Dana to conferences in the USA to learn how to care for animals – why did it take outsiders to come in and call this neglect to her attention?

Coming from RAA and RAR, charities who only dream to build shelters, took money from donors but never built anything in their lives – it’s a hard to be understood process.
DANA HAS THIS WEIRD FIXATION THAT PEOPLE ARE JEALOUS OF HER…THIS IS WHOLLY UNTRUE. VARIOUS CHARITIES HAVE DIFFERING GOALS,SOME TO BUILD SHELTERS, SOME TO ORGANISE AND FUND SPAY AND NEUTER CLINICS..NOW IF WE ARE TO BELIEVE THAT RAR AND RAA HAVE MADE TESTIMONIALS AGAINST ROLDA BECAUSE THEY ARE JEALOUS SHE HAS A SHELTER. WHY THEN DO THEY BOTH WORK HARD TO HELP OTHER SHELTERS IN ROMANIA, WOULDNT THEY DO THE SAME TO THEM?

 

ALSO RAA IS A UK REGISTERED CHARITY WHO IF THEY FOCUSED ON ANIMALS IN THE UK WOULD BE INUNDATED BY GRANTS AND FUNDING, HOWEVER THEY CHOOSE TO FOCUS ON ROMANIA AND FOR THIS THEY ARE SPURNED BY UK BASED BUSINESSES AND GRANT BOARDS. WHY ON EARTH WOULD THEY BE JEALOUS OF A SHELTER IN ROMANIA WHEN THEY COULD FAR MORE EASILY SET UP ONE IN THE UNITED KINGDOM.

 

RAR has no desire to build a shelter in Romania. Shelters do not solve the problem of the stray dogs.  Spay Neuter will humanely solve the problem of unwanted strays.  Romania Animal Rescue does  provide help for shelters, individuals, and perform free spay/neuter as well as veterinary training programs with vets from the USA and their wonderful Romanian vets.  RAR helps 20 groups and shelters in Romania as our funding permits.  Why would Nancy Janes, who lives in the San Francisco area of California, be jealous of someone living in Galati, Romania?  

Nancy and her husband had  money to travel around the world hiking and golfing, until they went to Romania in 2001 and saw the plight of the animals – all animals – in that country. 

They started Romania Animal Rescue shortly thereafter to help the Romanian animals, primarily the dogs.  They have invested most of their existing funds to helping the dogs in Romania simply because it is the right thing to do. They have mortgaged their home to help the animals in Romania.  They sold many  possessions to help the fraudulent con artist Dana Costin in Romania.  Nancy has sold personal property to be able to help fund the amazing Spayathons that RAR has been able to do in Bucharest, Tecuci, and Craiova. To have our money stolen by the fraudulent con artist Dana Costin, as well as becoming aware that she was tricking others, was why Nancy exposed her back in 2006.

CONCLUSIONS FOR INSANE ACCUSSATIONS

If you think it’s easy task doing animal rescue in Romania, think again. The lack of funds

THE LACK OF FUNDS? VERY TRUE FOR MOST BUT NOT FOR DANA, SHE HERSELF STATED ON FB LAST YEAR ROLDA MADE $400,000 IN ONE YEAR. NOW THINK ABOUT IT, ROLDA HARDLY PAYS FOR ANYTHING, IT DOESNT HAVE TO..SO WHERE HAS ALL THAT MONEY GONE DANA?  IT HAS JUST BEEN RELEASED THAT ARCELORMITTAL HAS BEEN FUNDING THEIR LARGE SHELTER FOR ROLDA SINCE 2007 AT THE SUM OF 250,000 EURO PER YEAR.  Yet this is the very shelter that Dana Costin has been soliciting for donations to run since 2007.

Ignorance combined with daily overwhelming problems and cases are just few of the challenges.
Dana Costin is running a small shelter since 2003 – built in those days circumstances with no help from authorities. The officials are not the only enemies. Being a good looking clean shelters – envy and critics didn’t delay appear. After the big shelter was built and the strong collaboration with the steel plant brought ROLDA financial stability, of course some other charities became more envious and start recruiting people, paying them to slander and destroy what was built with hard work, sacrifices and mountains of energy.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT ENVY DANA, WHAT YOU HAVE DONE AND CONTINUE TO DO IS NOTHING TO BE ENVIOUS ABOUT, ALSO IF THIS WERE THE CASE WHY DOES RAR AND RAA GO OUT OF THERE WAY TO HELP OTHERS IN ROMANIA?

Dana Costin is 24h/day 7 days/week at duty, meeting the steel plant demands and rescue some of the most skinny dogs from outside the town, where the industrial sites are placed.
Rarely she takes some days off but still connected with the shelters activities.
ROLDA helps community with free sterilizations when funds permit and also send donations to private people like Valerica and shelters like Fiducia.

THE ONLY THING IT IS CLEAR 24/7 DANA IS DOING AND THAT SHE HAS NOT DENIED IS DEFRAUD THE DOGS AND THE DONORS SHE HAS MADE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS FROM

 
ROLDA respond directly to donors regarding how funds are spent, it also show monthly accountability to the steel plant department, the financial annual statement can be found on Ministry of Finance Romania and ROLDA USA respond directly to IRS in USA.
ROLDA TELLS DONORS ONLY WHAT IT WANTS THEM TO KNOW. THAT AUDIT MEANS NOTHING IF THE FUNDS THAT ARE RECIEVED ARE NOT ACCOUNTED FOR ACCURATELY.

I would personally advice small groups and individuals from Romania to work with foreign charities only based on a signed agreement, if possible legalized. Do not make the same mistake that ROLDA did to trust mentally insalubrious persons like Nancy Janes who are chasing glory at her elderly.
OH NO DANA, AS IT IS US THAT IS HANDING OVER OUR MONEY TO ROMANIAN GROUPS, WE WOULD SUGGEST THAT A CONTRACT/AGREEMENT IS NEEDED TO PROTECT THE ONES GIVING THE MONEY OVER. JUST INCASE THEY END UP RUNNING INTO PEOPLE LIKE YOU!

 

ALSO: RAR did have a contract with ROLDA, which was sent to the fraudulent con artist Dana Costin, but she never signed it.

ROLDA had no written agreement with RAR and RAA. Dana Costin big mistakes were trusting people like Nancy Janes and Chrissy Phillips to the extent of considering them friends. I am sad I didn’t learn my lesson with Janes/RAR and repeat the same mistake with Chrissy/RAA.
DANA, YOU HAVE NOT DENIED STEALING FROM YOUR DONORS, YOU HAVE NOT DENIED THE LAND FRAUD, YOU HAVE NOT DENIED YOUR LAVISH SPENDING OF THE DOGS FUNDS,YOU HAVE NOT DENIED YOUR DELIBERATE TAX EVASION FRAUD, YOU HAVE NOT DENIED THE ANIMAL ABUSE….SO STOP PLAYING THE “OH PLEASE FEEL SORRY FOR ME CARD” NO ONE CARES ABOUT YOU DANA, THEY JUST CARE FOR THE ANIMALS, YOU REMEMBER THEM? THE ONES YOU STEAL FROM AND USE AS A SHEILD….

 

If these two charities (RAR-Nancy Janes, and RAA-Chrissy Phillips) are posing so much against ROLDA shelters conditions and are spending now money and energy to hurt our image, WHY not looking after the dogs they “rescue”?! WHY they choose ROLDA from all the Romanian charities to complete this rescue mission, if we are so bad, evil, etc?!

RAA WORK WITH MANY NGO’S, IN ROMANIA TRYING TO FIND FOSTER CARE FOR 1 DOG IS NEAR IMPOSSIBLE LET ALONE THAT MANY. THE BOTTOM LINE WAS A BIG MISTAKE WAS MADE. RAA THOUGHT THE DOGS WOULD BE BETTER ANYWHERE THAN ON THE STREETS WHERE THEY WERE FOUND…HOW WRONG RAA WAS!

    This is the ultimate degenerate act. If this lady is guilty of steeling money from the poor destitute animals who could benefit greatly from the funds, there are no words to describe such an act. What soul could use the money for a lavish life style knowing the money not only belongs to the animals but knowing their horrific plight. It is not something that anybody can get their mind around. I could never find words to explain the deeds of a human being like this one. I can only say that the image conjured up in my mind is that of a very deep bottomless dark empty well. I hope this person is stopped immediately and punished. Moreover I hope the animals get to benefit from the funds. Poor poor adorable innocent animals.

  2. Sally Jay says:

    Disgusting she should be locked away she is a danger to society and especially those animals that need help, lock her away and throw away the key. This woman has no heart and shouldn’t be allowed to live on this planet the sooner she is got rid of the better I say

    Email proof that RAR split with ROLDA in May of 2006:

    Subject: Re: Emailing the donors

    Hi Renee,
    I think what needs to be stressed moreso is her lack of work in town. She hasn’t spayed or neutered hardly any dogs. The shelter is OK, now that it’s been cleaned up by her mom. Of course Dr. Olsen told her how to make it nice…… From now on RAR $ goes only for spay and neuter, and possibly food. I truly believe I am handling this as best as anyone could have. Dana had Schnuffie going for a while, and they were nice to her and mean to me. Well, Dana fell into her own lack of care for anyone, and blew it with them as well.
    I get to San Diego on Monday.
    Love,
    Me

    I just finished reading the emails. From what I can see, you are handling everything with complete grace. Thank God you are such a pro. I can’t believe what is going on. Maybe that opera woman you know in Romania can hook you up with a vet in Bucharest to check the dogs that are supposed to go with you. Again, I want to stress that you should stop sending things to Merritt. Unfortunately the psycho (yes him, as well as Dana) still has some pull in the animal community through AP. I recommend stopping communication with him. If he should threaten to say anything negative about you or RAR in AP, tell him you will sue for defamation. I have no doubt that he will do anything Dana asks of him, even if that means unfavorable mention in AP. At this point, you do not need any mention in AP to get donors. I’m sure you have already gotten any you would from that source by now.

    I also think you need to send something to the RAR website guy ASAP as well as send a message to the donors about ceasing your relationship with ROLDA. I would be happy to send the emails, but it has to be today. I’m leaving town for Salt Lake in the morning and my Internet access will be limited. I have your email list from the last newsletter. You seem to be a real pro, so you can probably do something better, but how’s something like this:

    To all RAR supporters:

    I am writing this from Galati, Romania. I am currently here with the Schnuffie Production crew to film a documentary about Romania’s stray dog crisis. As you know, to date Romania Animal Rescue, Inc. has been workeding exclusively with Dana Costin of ROLDA to help the dogs in Galati. Because Romania Animal Rescue is a US 501(c)3 charity, it is based in California and therefore, I cannot have constant direct supervision over our partners in Romania. Therefore, I travel to Romania several times a year to review our partners.

    While here for this visit, I have had a chance to do Romania Animal Rescue’s ongoing review of the ROLDA shelter and their operations. To my dismay, the ROLDA program has worsened since my last visit in February. The shelter itself is in poorer condition and the program is not being managed to my expectations.

    For this reason, the Board of Directors has chosen to cease our partnership with the ROLDA shelter in Galati. We were grateful to have had the opportunity to help a countless number of dogs in this city, however, we must move on to help others in Romania. I have had the opportunity to form new relationships with other animal advocates here in Romania and we will now work with these individuals to help Romania’s dogs.

    It is important to me that all of the Romania Animal Rescue, Inc. donors are fully aware of where their donations are going. Allow we will no longer be supporting the ROLDA shelter, please rest assured that every cent of our donors’ money will go directly to helping dogs in Romania. When I return to the US, I will send further information regarding the changes to Romania Animal Rescue, Inc.’s alliances within Romania.

    Thanks so much for your ongoing support. Unfortunately the stray dog crisis is still huge, but together with your help, we can make Romania a better place for dogs.

    Sincerely,
    Nancy Janes, President
    Romania Animal Rescue, Inc.

    What do you think? As for the cart, the woman told me I need measurements in order for her to find the right cart. I think with puppies you start with one and then get a new one when they get larger. I’m guessing they are somewhat adjustable. So if you can send me the measurements, I’ll work on getting it ASAP.

    Hi there!
    Rory is in contact with me, has closed the account so shithead can’t get more money out, and things should be OK. The only apprehension I have is that Dana will try to make it impossible for Schnuffie and I to take the animals to the USA. She will try to undermine this – I am sure of it. I must be prepared to find another vet that can check the dogs and give them clearance to leave the country. Schnuffie people are worried Dana may retaliate by hurting the dogs now that they are at ROLDA, but I don’t think she would do that, but she might.
    I am so embarrassed – not only did Schnuffie get screwed, but Ross Johnston from the Peace Corp has been as well, and another vet from the UK who signed on last minute. Finally, I feel so sorry that this happened for the dogs sake. I can’t believe what a complete narcisist she is to have ruined what could have saved thousands of animals. It will hit me eventually that this has truly happened, and I hope to be hiking when it does.
    Can you still try to find a cart for little Ana Marie? I have so much to do now. Thank you,
    Love,
    me
