Justin and Gunner’s story

Justin became homeless after both his parents died. He had no-one to turn to. That changed when he met Gunner. St Mungo’s is one of the only organisations to allow dogs in our hostels.

“It is nice to have someone there with you. It gives you a reason to go and do something. He is my best friend”.

 

“I lived with my parents. I lived there for 20 years. And when they passed away, I got made homeless. My mum died of cancer, a year later my dad died of a heart attack.

“I look forward to every time I see my dog. I was there when he was born. I watched him be born. He was the one. It’s nice to have someone there with you. It gives you the reason to go and do something, to get out and about”


Here at St Mungo’s we recognise the powerful emotional support a dog can provide. That’s why we are one of the only charities to accept pets in our hostels. By donating to St Mungo’s this winter, you can help save two lives from homelessness. Donate here.
