The members of Rescue Ink, a non-profit animal rights group, can give a very misleading first impression. These muscular, tattooed men on bikes look like they are eager to pick up a fight, only in this case, their fight is against neglectful and abusive pet-owners!
These big men come from a variety of backgrounds – from ex-bodybuilders and powerlifting champions to military men, detectives, and lawyers. Like superheroes, they keep a vigilant eye out for any signs of animal abuse. Their body of work includes dismantling dog-fighting rings, confronting the monstrous animal abusers, and rescuing stolen animals.
Rescue Ink members like to stay within legal parameters, but they do not mind overstepping police jurisdiction to ensure the safety of an animal. They not only rehabilitate animals, but also give a stern tough talk to their abusers. It’s no wonder that their name alone induces fear among these abusive monsters.
Over the years, Rescue Ink has gone above and beyond to rescue many other animals like horses, pigs, fish, chickens, ducklings, and even a boa constrictor! Their mission is to stand as protectors for every helpless animal, and they never shy away from any difficult rescue.
In the heartbreaking video below, we see the pitiful plight of Rescue Ink’s base in the aftermath of hurricane Sandy. Amidst the ruins, the bikers do not rest until every animal in the vicinity is saved. These tattooed animal crusaders truly deserve every ounce of our respect!
