Chen Yunlian "has become to Chinese dogs what Mother Teresa was to the poor in India," according to Yahoo News:
For 11 years, the 60-year-old former businesswoman has been rescuing strays off the streets. She now cares for about 900 dogs and 100 cats in her own animal shelter built among rice paddies on the southern outskirts of Chengdu, in southwest China's Sichuan province. About 100 of the dogs were rescued from the quake zone, she said.
