Sweet, Crazy Woman Adopts 1500 Dogs, 200 Cats
A Chinese woman quit her job to take care of 1,500 stray dogs – which some would argue is a certain death for the dogs.
It would seem that Ha Wenjin gave up her business, sold her house, her car and jewellery to setup a unofficial dog rescue in Nanjing. What the hell would posess her to adopt so many damn animals? Oh a big heart. LAME!

“At first I did this in my spare time, but as I gathered more and more abandoned pets, I had to work full time for them,” she said.
She has taken on 10 workers to help her look after the dogs – and another two to help care for 200 adopted cats at a second centre she has set up nearby.
Her project was uprooted when the government reclaimed the land for redevelopment and she’s had to find a new place that was far removed from any neighbors as you can imagine how much noise that many dogs could produce.
And her finances are so tight that relies on volunteer days when people bring hundreds of ‘pork buns’ to feed the dogs. You can’t even make this stuff up.
Best part of the story, she’s moving all the animals on four buses on December 4 and is in desperate need of chaperones and for those to help clean the vehicles after they are finished moving. Because then they are going to use them again for people? Sick.
