Wang Yan (Chinese: 王岩; pinyin: Wáng Yán; born 1986) is a Chinese animal welfare activist in Helong city, northeast China. He was formerly a proprietor of iron and steel factory, and was a millionaire. He claims that the loss of his dog in 2012 compelled him to devote his resources for saving dogs. From that year he started a rescue centre for dogs in Helong city. As of 2015, he claims he has helped rescuing more than 2,000 stray dogs, and is keeping over 200 dogs at his centre. He maintains he has spent all his money and has turned bankrupt.
