The Rose Yard dog yard is located in Beijing’s Shunyi District northeast of the city center. What makes a good living environment for stray dogs? Go check it out for yourself!

The 80 plus pups residing at the yard all agree — this place rocks! At 2 acres, they keep the number of dogs low, so that each dog has a healthy amount of room to run and play. The facility is clean, well-equipped to care for dogs, and includes lots of artistic surprises both the dogs and human visitors enjoy.

Mission 🙏

Established in August 2017, Rose Yard Rescue Group’s main rescue efforts go toward Beijing’s hundreds of thousands of stray dogs. They emphasize adoption over purchasing — because why buy a pet dog, when there’s so many adorable stray pooches looking for a family already?

What really sets Rose Yard apart is their artistic edge. Queena Yang — one of their original cofounders — is passionate about both visual arts and lovable dogs. Her vision to combine the two makes Rose Yard the unique organization it is today — a beautifully aesthetic dog rescue group.

You’ll know a dog comes from Rose Yard when it’s rocking a stylish sport suit, when it’s wearing a trendy fur-cut (haircut for dogs), when its ears are dyed hot pink.

If Vogue Magazine China ever publishes a dog fashion issue, Rose Yard dog will make the cover for sure.

Facts of the day! There’s an estimated 40 million stray dogs in China, and an increasing number of live on the streets of China’s major urban areas. Today, China has over 300 Chinese dog rescue organizations — Beijing alone with over 1000 dog yard rescue groups.

Rose Yard is a fine example of just how eccentric and fun doing good in this world can be. Day to day, Rose Yard’s volunteers take on mounds of responsibility helping Beijing’s Stray dogs.

  • Searching for lost dogs
  • Caring for dogs in the yard
  • Organizing dog-adoption events
  • Spreading informational resources about dog ownership
  • Collaborating with dog-related business and brand
  • Campaigning for dog-centered art exhibitions
  • …and much more!

With a special artistic touch, Rose Yard continues to strive towards a better future for Beijing’s many strays.
