Uniting for Compassion

Updated: Mar 4

Organize Your Own International Pet Appreciation Rally

Summer is fast approaching, and with it comes an incredible opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our beloved furry friends. Duo Duo Project team members and our dedicated supporters are gearing up for our second annual International Pet Appreciation Rally. Click here to see more photos from our inaugural International Pet Appreciation Rally in Sunnyvale, USA, in 2023.

Last year's events were a tremendous success, and we're aiming even higher this year. Let’s end the horrible Yulin dog meat “festival” (occurring on June 20, 2024) and the cruel dog and cat meat trade with an international outpouring of love for the animals with whom we share our lives.

Our 2024 events will kick off with a large-scale rally in Union Square, in the heart of San Francisco, USA, where our voices will unite in a powerful demonstration of compassion for dogs and cats worldwide. Then throughout June, volunteer-driven rallies will take place across the globe, spreading our message of love and hope.

We're calling on all animal advocates to join us in organizing International Pet Appreciation Rallies in your communities. 

And the best part? It's easier than you might think! Here are some ideas on where to hold an International Pet Appreciation Rally:

  • your yard

  • a local park

  • your company’s parking lot or break room

  • pet-friendly hotel lobby

  • in front of a pet supply store 

  • in front of a veterinarian clinic

  • the lobby or parking lot of your local animal shelter or rescue organization, ask if they are interested in co-organizing with you

  • or find another creative, pet-friendly location

All it takes is 10 or more passionate individuals coming together to make a difference.

If you're ready to take a stand for compassion and lend a helping hand to this important cause, we are here to support you every step of the way. Need help organizing an event? Have questions about how to get started? Reach out to Duo Duo Projects’s Director of Campaigns, Christy Griffin (, and we'll provide you with the guidance and resources you need to make your rally a success.

Just take a look at the incredible rallies organized by our friends last year! The energy, the enthusiasm, and the sense of solidarity were truly inspiring, and we know that with your help, we can replicate that magic in communities all around the world in 2024.

But beyond the logistics and the rallying cries, there's something truly special about coming together to celebrate the bond we share with our pets. Our furry family members bring us joy, comfort, and unconditional love every day, and it's only fitting that we take a moment to honor and appreciate them in return.

By organizing an International Pet Appreciation Rally in your community, you're not just standing up against cruelty; you're also celebrating the profound connection between humans and animals. You're sending a powerful message of compassion and kindness that resonates far beyond the borders of your city or town.

So let's all stand up and speak out against the dog and cat meat trade. We need your help. Let's show the world that dogs and cats are family, not food. Let's celebrate compassion, and let's make this summer a time of hope and healing for all. Together, we can make a difference.
