Shelter and Rescue Support

ABOUT DUO DUO PROJECT

 

"I knew I had to do something to end the dog meat trade and close the slaughterhouses. That something was the Duo Duo Project." Andrea Gung, Founder & Executive Director

We sponsor shelters in China strategically. Our shelters are mostly located in dog eating cities. We also work with local activists to provide care for dogs rescued from the dog meat trade.

We envision a future where people throughout China honor the precious bond between humans and animals and treat all living things with compassion.

OUR MISSION

We work alongside compassionate people in China to end the dog and cat meat trade by caring for companion animals and helping everyone see that they contribute greatly to human well-being and deserve to be treated with compassion

BEGINNINGS

Duo Duo the rescue dog

On a trip to China, our founder and executive director, Andrea Gung, discovered a dog locked away in a filthy room without water or food. Andrea fed the castaway through a small window for days and was heartbroken to learn that the little dog would be butchered for the dog meat trade.

Determined to rescue the innocent animal, Andrea arranged to buy her for 10 dollars and named her Duo Duo (多多), which means abundance in Chinese. Today, this lucky — and properly spoiled dog, receives an abundance of love from her Oakland, California family.
