Dog lover Yang Xiaoyun buys and shelters thousands of dogs destined to be sold as meat in China. Yang said she spent 300,000 RMB ( 48,248 USD) to purchase 500 dogs to rescue them from dog meat dealers at Yulin's annual dog meat festival last month. She keeps more than 1,000 dogs in her shelters, mostly abandoned or she purchased from dog meat traders.
