4 Dec – After a chance meet with a homeless man named Kuya Jun in Gilmore while looking for her dog Casper last month, Heart Evangelista has now succeeded in helping the latter find his own place to call home.

As reported on GMA News, the PAWSsion Project recently shared a photo of Kuya Jun in his new home with his dogs, writing, "Today was totally a happy, emotional, heartwarming and life changing day as we officially welcomed Kuya Jun and his dogs to the shelter. HOMELESS NO MORE!"

"He had the simplest wishes, just a place where he can be with his dogs, and clothes he can use to go to church. We were all in tears when he cried for joy seeing his home and everyone else at the shelter giving him the warmest welcome. He said, everyday, he prays for a home for him and his dogs and we thank God for using all of us as His instruments."

PAWSsion Project also thanked Evangelista for helping them give Kuya Jun a home, writing, "It was all because of you that we now have this amazing new member of our family. God really is amazing to have used all of us in making this happen."

Evangelista also took to social media and expressed her belief that their meeting was fated.

"Kuya Jun, whatever you went through, it doesn't matter. It's time to forget that because you now have a new life."

It was back on 18 November that the actress shared a photo of Kuya Jun and his dogs, writing, "On my way home and I find this angel... minding his own business being guarded by his own angels sent by God."

She also shared the same photo on Twitter, and wrote, "If you see him along Gilmore, say hello. His name is Jun... a hero, an inspiration."
