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.
We work with people in China to end the dog and cat meat trade by helping everyone see that animals contribute to human well-being and deserve to be treated with compassion.

ANIMAL WELFARE ADVOCACY
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.
