Homeless man’s wish of going home with his dog gets granted with the help of concerned student and animal rescue group

A homeless man named Manong Rosendo delos Santos also referred to as Mang Jojo was fortunate to receive help from a student and an animal rescue group. Here is his story.

Manong is from Novaliches who transferred to Bacolod for work. He wont to earn a living at a carnival and his income was supported their sales. Last year, he found Blackie, a stray dog he now considers his family. Unfortunately, the people at the carnival left which made him homeless and jobless. Students often see him along the road in La Salle.


Fortunately, a student named Angelo Despi on Facebook took the courage to post his story and lift funds in order that he can head home to his family in Manila along side his furry friend. Many answered the decision and manong’s wish of seeing his family after numerous years became a reality. His dog was cleared by a vet and traveled with him on February 15.

PAWSsion Project, an equivalent rescue group who adopted another homeless man, Mang Jun, also came to assist . Seeing his love for animals, they're looking into offering him employment in their shelter in Bulacan. And you'll be surprised to understand his response.


“Can i'm going to mass on Sundays if I work there?” he asked. It only showed how good of a person he's . Despite his situation, he remained faithful to God.

The rescue group would appreciate donations for his medical needs as he complains of getting a tough time chewing food and cares with vision problems too.

We hope to offer you updates when Manong Rosendo arrives home to his family.
