In New York’s war on animal abuse, some of the worst offenders are pursued by a group of tattooed motorcycle-riding tough guys on a mission to save animals in danger.
They call themselves Rescue Ink, and these are their stories.
They’re eight big guys, with lots of tattoos and a soft spot for animals. Lifestyle expert Wendy Diamond, talks with the men from the popular national geographic channel show “Rescue Ink”.
Anyone who fights animal cruelty is a hero in our eyes.
Something like modern knights, they stand up for those who cannot do it themselves, and that includes animals.
That’s why it’s important to get positive stories out there like Rescue Ink.
This motorcycle gang started by visiting brutal and violent pet owners and then “convincing” them to hand them over whether they like it or not.
It’s easy to tell that they are tall, tattooed, but by no means silly guys.
Rescue Ink is a non-profit organization that has made it its mission to make the world a better place for the poor souls who cannot fight back.
Members couldn’t be more diverse in terms of gender, age, and job.
Some of them are full-time bikers, others are lawyers, former police officers, or bodybuilders. The list could go on and on, but they all have one mission: to find and save animals in need.
Rescue Ink says of itself that the group receives up to 250 calls daily from locations around the world.
The group often intervenes in possible dogfighting rings, but their use is not limited to dogs. Rescue Ink has already saved every type of animal. About a python, a pig, horses, fish, and chickens.
The guideline for this group reads as follows: “Rescue Ink does whatever it takes, but always stays within the law – as our lawyers tell us – to combat abuse and neglect.
Some people refer to us as superheroes. But the truth is that we are super animal lovers (and protectors). Over the years and in many cases, obstacles, and great challenges, we came out stronger and held onto our mission. “
If the group receives evidence of possible abuse, they don’t hesitate for a second to step in and rescue the tortured animal, including further help and recovery.
At first glance, the members look like you don’t want to mess with them, but that only happens if you plan to torture a poor and innocent animal.
And…My first thought was: We could use some of these guys here. Great thing! if we had such men here it would be a lot better
In Germany, there was a group, “Rescue Crew”, which started accord the model of “Rescue Ink”. But apparently gave up.
Dear Animal rights activists! never give up! Don’t complain and don’t discuss much, but act and solve problems!
And start all over again! Forward!
It is crucial that we do something – the animals only have us!
That is also the recipe for the success of Rescue Ink- never give up! these wonderful people are great role models for all of us.
My best regards to all, Venus
