Our founder Du Yufeng has been awarded the gold award and been presented with a cheque for US$100,000 by World Dog Alliance (WDA) in Hong Kong because of her continuing commitment fighting the Yulin Dog Meat Festival since 2012. She was the first one to bring this barbaric practice to the attention of the world and she has been there to protest and rescue dogs and cats almost every year since.
WDA was founded by Mr Peng (the man in the photo presenting Du with the cheque). Mr Peng is a well-known entrepreneur and philanthropist and he founded WDA in 2014 with the objective to advocate for legislation to ban dog eating in China, Vietnam and South Korea.
Mr Peng also self funded a full length documentary called "Eating Happiness" which features Du and some of our volunteers.
Mr Peng says dogs gets happy with simple things which also bring us happiness. The documentary will be released on 2nd October 2015. You can see the trailer here.
