61-year-old Jung Myoung Sook from South Korea has been saving dogs for the last 26 years. In all, Sook has saved over 200 dogs, picking up stray pups from the streets and even buying others from dog meat farms and restaurants.

Jung’s incredible kindness is considered strange in South Korea, where dogs aren’t popular as pets. She’s had to move house seven times after neighbours complained about the noise of her one-woman dog sanctuary.

Most of the dogs live with Jung full time and she says she spends nearly $1,500 a month on their care, relying largely on donations of dog food and money to get by.

Jung said, “Some people talk about me, saying, ‘Why is that beggar-like middle-aged woman smiling all the time?’, but I just focus on feeding my babies. I’m happy and healthy.”
