Dogs who provide a lifeline to people without homes

This article discusses the strong bonds that can exist between people who are homeless and their canine companions.  Since many hostels in the UK do not allow dogs, Dog’s Trust Hope Project works to provide shelter to people and their animal friends.  I have encountered many homeless people and their dogs (or cats) in Toronto and Halifax, and I have always been struck by the bond that exists between them, and by the fact that the animals’ welfare always comes first, to the point where sometimes the person will go hungry before the dog or cat does.  This article discusses how the dogs provide a lifeline to the people who care for them.
