Man Uses Fortune To Save More Than 2,000 Dogs From Slaughterhouse

- in Uplifting

When his dog went missing, Wang Yan searched everywhere.

“I went looking everywhere, but all to no avail,” Yan remembers, according to The Shanghaiist. “Finally someone let me go into the slaughterhouse to try my luck there.”

Even though Yan, who lives in Helong town in Jilin province, did not locate his missing dog in the slaughterhouse, he did find a new mission along the way. The 29-year-old used a large chunk of his money to buy the slaughterhouse and create an animal shelter instead.

Because Yan at the time had a net worth of several million yuan (a million yuan is equivalent to about $156,634), the most obvious thing to do to help those dogs he’d seen was to simply buy the slaughterhouse.

Yan used his fortune to establish a massive shelter for otherwise unwanted dogs. Since establishing the shelter, Yan’s saved over 2,000 lives.

Even though he has gone into debt, according to The Shangaiist, he does not accept monetary donations — only donated supplies.

“I only hope that kind-hearted people will be able to donate a few supplies to help build a home [for these dogs],” he said.

This, right here, is probably one of the most selfless and heroic acts ever.
