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.

Review:

"The brawny and heavily tattooed bikers constituting Rescue Ink, formed officially in 2008, have put a bounty on abusive dog (and other animal) owners. For almost a year, Flaim (The Holistic Dog Book) rode along with Batso, Big Ant, Johnny O, Angel, G and their five intimidating compadres on 'in your face' missions to rescue abused and neglected animals, track down stolen dogs, teach compassion toward animals to high school students, rescue an estimated 180 cats from a house and — in one harrowing account — confront a cruel recluse who was killing squirrels, birds and strays in his backyard for sport. Flaim ably blends colorful profiles of the individual members — Joe Panz 'is the kind of guy who could break out in hives just from saying the word frappuccino' — with journalistic accounts of their interventions with 'trappers, torturers and garden-variety dirtbags.' Starring in a National Geographic reality television show premiering this fall, the all-volunteer group's commitment inspires and endears. Photos. (Sept.)"

Synopsis:

Former "Newsday" writer Flaim chronicles the true story of 10 tough and tattooed bikers who rescue animals in danger. Color photo insert.

Synopsis:

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.
