July 21, 2008—An injured dog scoots around an animal shelter outside the city of Chengdu in China's Sichuan Province on June 26 with the aid of a walker cobbled together with PVC pipes.

The dog is one of about a hundred rescued and rehabilitated in the wake of the May 12 earthquake that killed nearly 70,000 people.

Thousands of other dogs weren't so lucky. They were culled in a government program meant to prevent disease from spreading in the quake's aftermath.
