Luke Rowles from Leicester, United Kingdom followed the example of his parents and volunteered to help the animals at the RSDR Rudozem Street Dog Rescue. He enjoys being around dogs.
Even as a young teen he took an active part in helping rescued dogs. It’s a family endeavor. His father Tony and mother Diane founded the rescue group, that takes dogs rescued from the streets of Bulgaria and finds them homes.
When he saw a group of men in a garden, kicking and beating a little fox whose mouth had been sealed shut with electrical tape, 15 year old Lucas went straight into action. Without regard to his own safety, he shouted at the men and grabbed the fox.
After healing the fox’s wounds, he freed the animal.
Luke, pictured with his mother, has returned to the UK, where he works for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
