Genlin (Hiroshi Horiike) was born in Shanghai, and lives in Hong Kong. He founded World Dog Alliance and other charities such as Genlin Foundation. He is currently the Honourable Board Member and Outstanding Alumnus of Shanghai University.


Twenty years ago, Genlin started to devote himself into charity programmes such as donations to build schools, libraries, gymnasiums, and setting up scholarships. He promoted to the public that 90% of his wealth would be allocated to charity, whilst he would retain 10% to his family.


Genlin has a great dream to build a society with wisdom, fairness, freedom and care. WDA aims to protect animals and love dogs, which has been his ultimate life mission.
