Chinese Dog Lover Adopts 140+ Strays

Posted on April 6, 2011

Owning one or two dogs can be a real nightmare chockablock with destroyed electronic products, scratched-up furniture, and poop galore. So just imagine what it’d be like to own 140 dogs!

Li Zongwen, 59, is a certified dog lover who adopted 140+ stray dogs from the mean streets of Wuhan, China. A former chef, Li put aside his career to take care of the creatures he loves the most: dogs.

It’s an extremely expensive mission that costs close to $1000 (6560 yuan) a month. This includes keeping a sturdy roof over their furry heads, and keeping them well fed via what Time Magazine referred to a “kiddie pool-sized bowl.”

Thankfully, Li has received an outpouring of financial supporter from other dog lovers throughout China. It just goes to show that this whole ‘the Chinese hate dogs and cats’ myth is completely false.

Unfortunately, Li is merely an amateur in the adoption business. Though adopting 140 dogs is a great feat deserving of honor, it’s nothing compared to adopting 1,500 dogs!

I am a 28-year-old heterosexual male hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina. I was raised in America and intend to bring up my children as proud Americans because I am defined by neither my past nor the color of my skin, but rather by the path I choose to take in life. It is this option to be who and what I want that has me so enamored with my Mother country: the United States of America. For more information, please visit feelgoodfriday1.blogspot.com.

animal hording, is a psychological disorder. There's no way those dogs are happy or eating properly. no matter how well his intentions are, he should know his limits. The same goes for the woman with 1500 dogs. I have 8 dogs and 4 cats myself and they're already a handful. I can't imagine a day in this man's shoes.
