Each morning at 4 AM, 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.
