Kindness toward animals, a story of hope, translated…
“Grandma’s here!”, every evening, Mrs. Lin’s energetic voice would accompany the sound of her motorcycle, appeared on the way to the dog pound, the over 500 dogs would wag their tales, and start barking in excitement. They may have been hurt badly and been abused, and no longer trusted humans, but Mrs. Lin worked hard, to make a shelter, a safe haven, for the dogs, and it’d managed to make those abandoned pets feel the powers of her love.
The seventy-year-old Mrs. Lin had lived alongside the dogs for thirty years, from the very start, when she was working an odd and end job at the construction site, she saw a dog with rubber bands, tied onto its neck, rummaging through the trash for food, she felt sad, then started bringing with her dog foods.
“I couldn’t stop myself once I’d started”, the strays that were under Mrs. Lin’s care rose to almost fifty in number quickly, she’d found a patch of land, and made a simple roof with wooden boards, to give shelter to dogs without a warm place to rest at night.
Her love for dogs was misunderstood by her family from the start, “I’d even dragged my own son down with me”, Mrs. Lin said, and even though, the son felt bad because she’s elderly, hoped she can just leave her group of “doggie grandsons” alone, yet, he’d put up money, to support her cause, so she could keep taking care of the five hundred abandoned dogs.
After three moves, Mrs. Lin with the help of a friend, lending her the property, she was able to make a doggie farm, and so, the dogs now have a free place to run free in, Mrs. Lin also set up a “Recuperating Area”, for the rescued dogs to recover fully.
And even though her hands had bleed from taking care of the stray dogs, Mrs. Lin still showed NO signs of pain in her eyes, “They’re all very cute”, looking at how the dogs would wag their tails at her, and smile at her too, Mrs. Lin squinted her eyes and smiled too.
This, is a woman who showed kindness to pets that are stray, and she gave them a safe place called home, not asking for any return, is there a greater kind of love? I think N-O-T!!!
