Wang Xiaoping is a retired doctor in Wenzhou city, east China's Zhejiang province. Giving up the relaxed and comfortable life, she left the big city and went to the countryside, voluntarily raising stray animals in the deep mountains.

Wang hired two workers with her pension of 7,000 yuan a month. She has adopted hundreds of stray animals within eight years and developed intimate relationship with them.

Eight years ago, she moved to Taipingqiao village in Huzhou city. With more than 1.8 million yuan she got from selling out two apartments, Wang built a 'heaven' for stray animals in the mountains. This place has become the 'utopia' of stray animals, where they no longer suffer from hunger, threats and slaughter.

"These little animals need 18 buckets of rice one meal and they eat up 50 kilograms of rice every day. I have to spend over 7,000 yuan on food for them every month. Thanks to the volunteers and kind-hearted persons, I can sustain until now. With my life's savings, I got the right to use the land for 30 years. I have struggled for years to look after these stray animals. I really hope that a competent and nice person will inherit the base from me when I am old one day," said Wang.
