Justin and Gunner’s story

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

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


Justin and Gunner’s story is part of our series which explores the relationship between St Mungo’s residents and their dogs.

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.
