Mission: To become the voice for the voiceless & forgotten, both human & animal.

Who was Luke?
In May of 2014, Melissa met a very a stinky and abused husky in need of help. Melissa always had a great deal of compassion towards animals and insisted Luke be surrender to her. This is the day Melissa's life changed forever. The 1st two weeks or so were awful, Luke cried all night and nothing would get him to stop. She learned that the medical records given to her were fake and Luke was crying because he was in pain. When Luke got on the correct medication and felt better everything in Melissa's and Luke's life changed. Luke was given 6 months to live but lived 18 very happy & fun-filled months. Melissa emotionally and spiritually changed while watching Luke's transformation. She learned their is hope, and a need to love and help those whom are unwanted and unloved (the least of the least). At first she worked with other rescues and fostered special needs dogs, but some were returned to her. After time in prayer and meditation she decided to found Love from Luke with the goal of helping individuals and animals deemed useless, put them through training and make blessing within there community.

Love from Luke: Lessons learned from a Rescued Dog
The goal of this book to assist the amazing individuals and families who have decided to become a “Dog Hero!” The reason I am wrote this book is to share the lifelong lessons I learned when I rescued a senior dog, who I named Luke. In all honesty I am not sure if it was two or three weeks of a stressful adjustment, but once I was able to understand my dog and what he was trying to tell me, my entire life changed for the better. This book is to encourage you not to give up creating a strong bond with your dog. I know first-hand that with patience and respect you can create the most loving relationship between yourself and your dog. Price includes tax and standard U.S. shipping.
