1,700 pounds of muscle, 80-plus tattoos, one unlikely mission…
Abusers are losers! That’s the rallying cry of Rescue Ink, the unique group of tattooed, muscle-bound motorcyclists who’ve banded together to rescue helpless, abandoned, and abused animals. Led by Joe Panz, Johnny O, and Big Ant, the guys act on tips from concerned citizens to find endangered animals and persuade the abuser (within the bounds of the law) to either change his hard-hearted ways or surrender the animal to them.
The inspirational story of these guys and their commitment to better animal care, Rescue Ink‘s combination of heartwarming stories and practical advice will charm everyone who loves animals.
About Rescue Ink
The true story of ten tough and tattooed bikers who rescue animals in danger
Though Joe Panz, Johnny O, Batso, Big Ant, G, Angel, Des, and Eric initially met and formed their friendships at tattoo and motorcycle conventions, they soon learned that they shared another passion: animals. Each had been rescuing troubled animals on their own for years. They decided to form Rescue Ink to combat the problem of animal abuse on a larger scale.
Working from tips from concerned neighbors and anonymous sources, they have rescued countless animals, including a dognapped bulldog and 180 cats from the home of a hoarder. In between rescues, they’ve protested the barbaric practices of a horse slaughterhouse, visited schools to educate children about animal kindness and that “abusers are losers,” and participated in Puppy Mill Awareness Day in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Former Newsday writer Denise Flaim chronicles their adventurous tales, detailing just what these brawny bikers, who will stop at nothing within the bounds of the law, can teach us all about respecting the creatures in our midst.
