Generous Women in China Make It Their Life’s Work to Care for Over 1,300 Stray Dogs Needing Their Assistance

Published by:

Begging for Food

Five very generous older women in the prefecture of Weinan in the Shaanxi Province of China have banded together to create the Weinan Dog Asylum, a shelter where over 1,300 stray dogs in the area are given food, a safe place to sleep, and other canine (and human) companionship on a daily basis. The shelter was started in 2009 by a woman who was 60 years old at the time named Wang Yanfang who wanted to help these dogs who would have otherwise been taken away and perhaps even destroyed. Yanfang and a group of her friends sought to do something about this and developed the dog asylum, which relies heavily on donations.

The ladies said they have been voluntarily taking care of the dogs for around six years as a way to save them from the pound, according to local media. Needless to say, looking after such a large pack of dogs is a lot of work. They have to wake up at 4am to prepare around 400kg of dog food per day for the hungry animals.

200 Glowing Orbs in Light Painting Photo

On July 19, 2014, a team of light painters from East Coast Light Painting created a long exposure photograph of 200 glowing orbs in a field in Virginia. To create the orbs, the group collaboratively developed a spinning light tool. During the 1,651-second exposure, the team fanned out to create each of the 7-foot-diameter orbs. The light painters were inspired by a 2011 photograph, in which photographer Andrew Wells created a long exposure image with 100 orbs. The group reports that their 2014 photograph has earned a Guinness World Record.
