China: Couple Spends Life Savings On Stray Animals

A husband and wife in China are seeking new homes for more
than 50 cats and dogs, after spending their life savings looking after the
Hu Fengduan and his wife live alongside the pets in a flat
measuring just 20 sq m (215 sq ft), the China News Service reports.
The animals are former strays which the couple took in from
the streets of Chengdu, in the southwestern province of Sichuan. It started 10
years ago with the rescue of a cat who was stuck on a roof, Mr Hu is quoted to
have said.

Since then, more animals have joined the household, and are
now costing the couple 3,000 yuan ($485; £320) each month. His wife, a former
nurse, looks after the animals’ health herself because veterinary appointments
are too expensive.

Mr Hu, a former gemstone appraiser who currently works as a
street vendor, says their money has run out, and the pets need new homes.
“We’ve spent all of our savings to raise them. I’m hoping more
warm-hearted people can help us by adopting some of the pets. We don’t want any
money but only ask people to be good to the animals,” he said.
