  Last August, I created the Golden Heart Rescue Group. 
       
     
  It has become a full time job. We treat up to two hundred dogs per month. 
       
     
  With my team, all volunteers, we are on the streets 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

  Some people may think that what I am doing is useless, that they will be killed anyway. But I feel it is my duty.

  My dream is to save them all. 
       
     
  I have made many sacrifices. My body hurts, my beauty and my reputation are gone, and my money also. 
       
     
  Who would want a wife like me? 
       
     
  My family business is not doing well because the shop is full of dogs. But still my parents support me. 
       
     
  People resent the fact that I care more about animals than human beings. 
       
     
  A few days ago I found a baby in the street while saving a dog. I decided to adopt him as well.
