Five Elderly Chinese Women Devote Their Entire Lives To Taking Care Of 1,300 Stray Dogs

Millions of stray animals reside on China’s streets. Many of them are abandoned companion animals, left to fend for themselves after being dumped by their owners, but the majority were born on the streets, as a result of unchecked breeding.

However, in a heroic gesture of kindness and love for dogs who need it the most, five women are actively working to do something about this crisis. This incredible group of women, all wake up every single day to feed over 1,300 hungry dogs in order to save their lives.

For over a decade now, a woman named Wang Yanfang and four of her friends have woken up at 4 am every day to feed the dogs living at the asylum. Yanfang founded the shelter back in 2009, and since then she has been relying solely on donations from generous well-wishers to continue her life-saving work.

Making sure all the dogs are well fed is no easy feat. The women are sometimes readying up a huge 880 pounds of food for the dogs.   Wang has admitted that the dogs aren’t always the friendliest of pups, as they occasionally receive bites and nips. However, that’s never put Wang off her beloved dogs.
