Millionaire spent his fortune turning slaughterhouse into dog sanctuary


If we are a millionaire, we can imagine spending our money on cars, a lovely house, etcetera. But one millionaire decided to be incredibly selfless instead of using his luck to save the lives of thousands of dogs.

Wang Yan became a millionaire running a steel business in Changchun, China. But all the money in the world couldn’t replace his beloved dog, who suddenly went missing years ago.

The city has a large stray dog population, and many of these dogs have been captured, butchered, and sold in the cruel dog meat trade.

Sadly, Wang Yan did not find his dog in this horrible place. But what he saw there changed his life.

He knew he had to do something—and found a miraculous way to help the dogs: he bought the slaughterhouse and converted it into a dog sanctuary!

According to Metro, he has spent a considerable fortune on the project. He bought the slaughterhouse for $400,000 and funded the shelter out of his own pocket, even if it meant going into debt. “I don’t accept monetary donations, I only hope that kind-hearted people will be able to donate a few supplies to help,” Yan told Metro.
