Everyday, Elderly Chinese Women Feeds 1,300 Stray Dogs

A group of five elderly women in China have been tirelessly caring and feeding over 1,300 stray dogs at their own custom dog shelter.

Each morning at 4AM, these altruistic women begin their day by feeding these, otherwise unwanted, animals as they have done for the past five years. The 60-and-over caretakers are entirely devoted, even spending New Years’ Eve with the dogs

60-year-old local Wang Yanfang who set up the shelter, remarked “They’re like your children, you can’t bear to be apart from them, or to lose them.”

We agree. This touching story highlights that a more compassionate world is created by caring individuals. Animals are our friends, our children, our companions, our brothers and sisters.
