China has 40 million stray dogs - around one-fifth of the world’s population. The stray problem is multifaceted and to address it, the service would have to meet the needs of animal rescuers, owners and the great society.
Animal welfare in China has its unique form led by individuals, who are stretching thin to handle the influx of unwanted animals without professional knowledge to maintain a shelter, let alone an efficient animal rehoming system. Only 11% of pet dogs were adopted, despite the increasing ownership in the booming market, while many of them end up being returned for behavioural problems, such as destruction, barking and inappropriate toileting, they are unable to manage. However, it's often not only a pain for adopters but it's also a major factor in troublesome pet ownerships.
