Three years ago, someone stole millionaire Wang Yan's beloved dog. Wang believes the thief stole the pup with the intention of selling his four-legged best friend to a meat farm.
He was devastated and even searched a slaughterhouse hoping to find his dog alive. What he saw there scarred him. He knew that he would do whatever it took to prevent dogs from becoming food.
Wang bought an abandoned steel factory and converted it into a shelter. To date, he has rescued thousands of dogs. Currently, there are roughly 200 dogs in the shelter, at times, there have been over 1000. Saving all of these lives has cost him dearly.
The former millionaire made his fortune in the steel industry and at just 29 years of age, Wang has lost all of it. But, he'd happily lose it again if it meant saving dogs from meat farms.
This incredibly compassionate human does not accept any monetary donations. He does not even charge adoption fees. He only takes donations of food and other supplies that he needs for the dogs.
His dedication to rescuing thousands of dogs from unimaginable cruelty is remarkable. We hope that he is able to continue to save lives and help more pups find forever homes.
Thank you for everything you do Wang. You are truly a hero.
