A man went from being a millionaire to broke while trying to save dogs from being slaughtered.

The former millionaire from China, has gone bankrupt after he opened an animal rescue center that helps stray dogs find loving homes.

29-year-old Wang Yan of Jilin, used to be a millionaire, but he gave it all away. His journey began when his beloved pet dog disappeared.

Yan said that he started looking for his dog, but he was unable to find it. Someone suggested that he check a nearby slaughterhouse for his pet.

Yan went to the slaughterhouse for a week, but could not find his lost dog. Instead, he found a bloody scene of slaughtered dogs, and he was unable to get the sight out of his head.

Yan used his fortune to buy the slaughterhouse and establish an animal shelter. He successfully found many homes for stray dogs.

Yan is now in debt, providing supplies to keep the shelter up and running. He said that he does not accept monetary donations, but supplies to help build a home for about 200 dogs.
