Meet Yang Xiaoyun, a 65-year old woman, she traveled 1,500 miles from her home in the city of Tianjin to rescue these helpless dogs away from being slaughtered, according to the report of Agence France-Presse. Yang started saving animals since 1995, when she saved an abandoned cat from the river. In 1999, she built the dog and cat sanctuary known as "Common Home for All".

She has taken hundreds of animals, sold her home and rent a place for animals, according to the 2013 video related to her achievements. She prepare food for the animals she considered as part of her family, according to the Times of India reports. At the present, she already had 1500 dogs and 200 cats. The 'selfless act' of Yang in Yulin was witnessed by the international observers and activists during the dog meat festival in the city.

Eating dog meat has historical precedent in China, said by Peter Li, China policy specialist for Humane Society International and associate professor at the University of Houston-Downtown, but the Yulin festival only began this last 2009.

An estimated 10,000 dogs were slaughtered each year for Yulin festival, along with the summer solstice.
