Wang Yan, who use to run a steel empire, spent $400,000 on a slaughterhouse to rescue its dogs.
He also spent millions turning the house into an animal rescue centre.
According to Yan, it all started when his own dog went missing.
“I went looking everywhere, but all to no avail, Finally, someone let me go into the slaughterhouse to try my luck there.”
Yan was unable to find his dog, but instead witnessed some truly graphic and bloody scenes at the slaughtehouse which he was unable to shake.
The business man bought the slaughterhouse and opened his own rescue centre, providing a home to over 1000 dogs at one point.
Most dogs have found loving homes now, and Yan has around 200 dogs still living at the centre.
What an incredible act of kindness.
