Luke started his career working with animals at a general practice veterinary clinic shortly after high school graduation. It didn’t take long for him to recognize the great struggle so many animals endure in their daily lives  –  which ignited a passion to advocate for animals by any means possible. What started as a part time job walking and feeding dogs, soon became a lifelong journey toward caring for all animals in need.

Luke has a special place in his heart for animals in rescue and shelter environments. Observing the behavioral issues of these refugee animals is what led him to join the ABWC team. Luke is currently finishing his degree at GMU and has plans to complete a positive reinforcement dog training certification program in the near future.
