ROLDA’s recent accusations against Romania Animal Rescue

ROLDAS Lies against Romanian Animal Rescue

From Dana Costin:  “Thanks to special donors (including some ROLDA’ supporters) , good things happened at Fiducia. A new block of kennels, some repairings, prepping for winter time.
I visited Fiducia shelter yesterday, 27 August and I was informed that:
– Despite promises coming from a US charity to send vets at the begining of August to spay all female dogs, nobody came.
I don’t mention this to hear more excuses or poor justifications/lies – I simply present this as an extreme emergency : the female dogs keep producing babies that are dieing because different kennel diseases like parvo or distemper.

– Mrs Lidia needs help to renovate more kennels and finish the small store house. This help can consists in money or building supplies and can be offered donating directly to Mrs Lidia/Fiducia or via ROLDA (for tax deductible donations for US donors) : visit the website and use the PayPal button or donate via Facebook cause application.”

RAR Response – Romania Animal Rescue spayed/neutered 144 dogs at Fiducia Shelter on September 5 and 6.   Dr. Aurelian Stefan, Dr. Petrisor Stefan and the RAR team went to Fiducia shelter at the request of Ms. Lidia and Anca from Adapostul Fiducia.   The dogs at Fiducia were very skinny – some too skinny to do surgery on.   Some were also suffering from distemper.   Why hasn’t ROLDA sent vaccinations to Fiducia Shelter?   Why hasn’t ROLDA provided food for Fiducia?   ROLDA has a Causes page on Facebook to collect funds for Fiducia dogs, and has sent out Direct Marketing solicitations to 25,000 of the best animal welfare donors in America asking for funds for Mrs. Lidia and the Fiducia shelter.  What has Dana Costin of ROLDA done with the funds collected for Fiducia if she is not caring for the dogs there, and is not providing spay/neuter or vaccinations?

Roldas latest nonsensical question of RAR

DANA:”Nancy Janes from RAR:where gone the funds for 1000 sterilization?”

RAR’s response: Since ROLDA does virtually no spay/neuter I assume she doesn’t understand how this works. RAR collects funding year-round for current projects, yet our biggest time for donations is usually around the end of the tax year. The funds generated during this donation period are used in the following years projects. They enable RAR to provide continued spay/neuter and services to the animals in Romania.  For instance, the donations RAR has received in December of 2009, 2010 and 2011 have enabled RAR to do our spay/neuter campaigns in the following years (2010, 2011 and 2012 respectively).   In 2011 RAR did over 4000 s/n, with much of the funding donated in December of 2010.

ROLDA accuses Romania Animal Rescue of sending “vanishing funds” to Romania Animal Rescue Foundation’s Livia Brenner and Dr. Stefan Aurelian in the amount of $40,000.   Please go to this link and you will see copies of the receipts sent to Romania Animal Rescue from RARF’s legal representative, Livia Brenner, and from Romania Animal Rescue’s Veterinary Director, Dr. Aurelian Stefan.
