An hour or so out of Nanjing, well away from the factories and cars of the bustling city, a small farm houses hundreds of dogs and cats. The animals are sick or injured or have been abandoned, but it’s no matter to Ha Wenjin or the army of volunteers who care for the animals. Connected with a small clinic in the city, the farm takes Nanjing’s unwanted pets and strays and gives them a life of leisure and freedom. The no-kill shelter, a rarity in the country, provides the animals with shelter, food, love and care in a city known as a source for dog and cat meat for southern China’s exotic food needs.
