A homeless man could not help but get emotional after actress Heart Evangelista surprised him with his own house on Monday, weeks after they met along Gilmore Avenue in Quezon City.
Heart came across Jun while looking for her dog, Casper, that went missing last month. As seen in a photo she posted on micro-blogging site Twitter last November 18, the 34-year-old star found Jun with a pack of dogs in front of a closed establishment.
“If you see him along Gilmore, say hello. His name is Jun... a hero, an inspiration,” she wrote as caption.

Heart has since found Casper with the help of her fans and followers on social media.
The actress-vlogger teamed up with PAWSsion Project, a Bacolod-based non-profit group dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating stray and maltreated dogs, to surprise Jun and his pets with their own home--a bahay kubo located right inside their shelter.
In their latest post on Instagram, PAWSsion Project extended their gratitude to Heart for making the surprise possible.
“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,” they wrote.
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and hope. 🖤 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. Thank you @iamhearte for helping us give him a home. 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. Thank you @kitbarraquias for the ultimate pangkabuhayqn showcase for tatay!!! Thank you to our dearest volunteers for all the help since day 1 and everyone else who helped one way or another!! We all did it! So so happy for Kuya Jun and his dogs and for everyone. It is an experience we’ll forever treasure. Indeed, God makes all things beautiful in His time 🖤 WELCOME TO THE FAMILY KUYA JUN!
