Susan, who lives in one of our hostels in London with her dog Lady, talks about how Lady helps combat loneliness and gives her a sense of purpose.
“It’s not so scary when you have someone else with you, [someone] you feel safe with. She got my heart straight away.”
When I haven’t got her I’m lost without her. I couldn’t imagine life without her.
St Mungo’s is one of the only organisations to allow dogs in accommodation for homeless people. Susan and Lady’s story is part of our series which explores the relationship between St Mungo’s residents and their dogs.
Its not so scary when you’ve got someone else with you, you feel safe with. She [Lady] got my heart straight away. She was spoiled from day one.
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.
