Friends of Luke – Helping Homeless Pets

FriendsofLukeChances are you’ve seen NextHome Experience’s cute orange Frenchie mascot, Luke, outside homes for sale in your neighborhood. Luke isn’t just sold on sniffing out sales — he knows that while NextHome Experience agents and our valued colleagues in the real estate industry are helping people make their next moves, there are lots of pets waiting to move into their forever homes.

This holiday season, Luke is asking you to help his friends in the Augusta, Bangor, and Ellsworth areas by donating much-needed supplies to local animal shelters and rescues. We’re pleased to partner with Gateway Title, Inc., Mortgage Network, Inc., Residential Mortgage Services, Treworgy & Baldacci, and T & B Title to collect and distribute these supplies.
