A dog lover from the Pudong district of Shanghai, recently melted millions of hearts after it was revealed that he has been living on the streets of the Chinese metropolis for 10 years, so he could take care of stray dogs.
58-year-old Cui Hengyi started caring for injured and abandoned dogs in his city 28 years ago. He wasn’t homeless at the time, so he started bringing them into his home, and claims that at one point, in 2006, he had a whopping pooches living with him. The constant noise and the fear of disease didn’t sit too well with his neighbors, who soon started filing complaints against him. Pressured by the authorities to get rid of the animals or risk getting evicted, Cui decided that having a home wasn’t worth giving up on his furry friends, so he decided to leave his house and family behind and live in the streets to take care of stray dogs.
Cui now lives in a small mobile shack, and makes a living picking up trash. He claims that he spends about $750 a month on food and medicine for the dogs currently in his care, and only $90 for himself. His kindness to abandoned animals have attracted a number of local volunteers who are always willing to help him out .
In order to avoid bothering people with his dogs, like he did his neighbors years ago, Cui always makes sure to walk them early in the morning and late in the evening, when the streets are less busy. Cui wakes up every morning at 5 a.m. to walk the dogs, clean their cages and feed them, after which he spends the rest of the day collecting trash, listening to music or resting.
Cui Hengyi says that he has helped over 3,000 dogs in the last 28 years. he makes sure they are well fed and healthy, but his main goal is to find stable homes for as many of them as possible. Cui aknowledges that finding a good home for his dogs is essential to his mission.
In a recent interview, Cui Hengyi said that in the last few years, he was only able to spend the Holidays with his family one or two times. He spends most of his days in the streets with the dogs – which he says are his soul – and his wife and children understand and support him.
