Wang Yan is a young man from Gelong town in Jilin province who entered the Chinese steel industry at the beginning of the millennium. Such industry had a boom back then and Yan became a millionaire after establishing an empire in Changchun city. But now most of his money has gone for a truly great cause: helping dogs.
It all started in 2012 when his beloved dog went missing and no matter how much he tried, he couldn’t find him. He even started hanging around a slaughterhouse looking for him but with no luck. However, the sight of such a horrible place changed his life forever.

All those innocent animals being slaughtered for their meat and sold in the market is a sad reality in many Chinese cities. And after Yan witnessed it, he decided to buy the slaughterhouse and close it for good and he built an animal shelter to help stray dogs and give them a different future.
The shelter was built in an abandoned steel factory and Yan provided food, shelter and medical care for the dogs living there. Soon enough he lost his fortune. The shelter that once hosted over a thousand dogs has now only 215 that are still in need of a loving home. The rest were adopted.
But the winter is coming and Yan is still worried about building a home for the remaining dogs. So he is asking for donations to achieve that. He says, however, that he doesn’t want any money but only supplies. And with that he is showing how genuine his cause is and how selfless he is.
Just take a look at the pictures and wish there were more rich guys like him.
