China's animal activism
 
China's animal protection law was drafted in 2009, but has still not been implemented
For centuries, dogs, cats and other animals have been raised just for food consumption and for use in traditional medicines
Dog meat is popular and is considered to have medicinal properties
Cat meat is also a delicacy, particularly in the south of Guangzhou and during winter months
Du Yufeng has rescued hundreds of dogs and cats in her home province of Sichuan
She spends more than $60,000 a year caring for the dogs, saving them from extermination or ending up on a restaurant menu
