ABOUT Duo Duo
( 多多), THE $10 DOG
Shelter and Rescue Support
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.
On one of her trips to China, our founder and executive director Andrea Gung discovered a dog locked in a dirty room, neglected and without food. Andrea began to feed the dog through a small window each day. She was heartbroken to learn that the dog would be butchered for the dog meat trade.
A quote by Dr. Martin Luther King flashed in my mind,
"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
I knew I had to do something to end the dog meat trade and close the slaughterhouses. That something was Duo Duo Project.
- Andrea Gung, Founder, Duo Duo Project
Andrea rescued this dog and she became our mascot. Her name, Duo Duo (多多), means abundance in Chinese. Andrea wanted Duo Duo to have an abundance of love. Duo Duo now lives happily with her American family in Oakland, California.
Our mission is simple -- the humane and cruelty-free treatment of all living things. Our outreach projects and programs are driven by community needs and our relationships within similar focused groups.
