Yupin Chaophichit, 52, who lives in Phichit's Mueang district, said she has been feeding about 30 stray dogs at a sugarcane plantation near her village. She also takes care of about 50 abandoned dogs and about 25 stray cats at her house.


Yupin drives her motor-tricycle to feed the stray dogs at the sugar plantation every morning.

Yupin said she needs public support as she does not earn enough from collecting recyclable garbage to feed all the animals.
