In Weinan, China, a group of five senior ladies have taken it upon themselves to rescue and care for hundreds of dogs. The founder of the dog shelter, Wang Yanfang, established the sanctuary six years ago, and together with her companions, wakes up at the crack of dawn every day to feed the animals. With over 1300 dogs to look after, the group is responsible for preparing an enormous amount of food – approximately 400 kilograms – each morning. Despite the challenges, these admirable women continue to provide a safe haven for the dogs in their care.
Despite being in their 60s or 70s, these women are dedicated to ensuring that the dogs are well-fed and cared for. They go beyond simply providing sustenance and also take care of their grooming needs and shower them with love and attention.
Although working with dogs on a daily basis may appear to be an idyllic scenario, it can be quite challenging. It is not uncommon for women to have experienced bites from dogs, especially since not all unowned dogs are friendly towards humans.
Despite facing some setbacks, these women remain committed to their valuable work with their dogs. They are deeply passionate about their furry companions and believe that their efforts will ultimately pay off in the bigger picture.
The residents in the area are providing assistance to the women through their contributions to the shelter and showing their support for their mission. The facility relies solely on donations, making it reliant on the kindness of the community.
The female dog owners are fully committed to their puppies and opted to celebrate New Year’s with their large furry family instead of joining in the usual festivities. Yanfang, in an interview with Tencent News, expressed that the dogs are like children and they cannot imagine being away from them or losing them.
The dedication and devotion exhibited by these women towards their furry companions are truly remarkable. They serve as a source of inspiration to everyone and are nothing less than heroes for saving countless dogs from misery and even death. Recently, a playful dog named Kimi caused quite a stir when she chewed up her owner’s passport merely a month before their planned family trip to Wuhan. As a result, the woman had to cancel her travel plans and Kimi found herself in her owner’s bad books.
