And now, your Moment of Awwwwwwww

Mom, you're gonna LOVE this one. (h/t to nycdeb for the link.)

About 15 years ago, a group of animal-loving, tattooed bikers in the New York area began acting on behalf of abused animals. The men volunteered at shelters and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty Toward Animals, and they tried to solve cases of missing or abused animals that other organizations had neither the time nor the resources to address.

About a year ago, they took up the name Rescue Ink, and now work full time investigating cases of animal abuse.

There are such good people in the word.

I think that a lot of cases of abuse/neglect are caused by the pet owner's cluelessness or lack of resources, not by willful cruelty. Those guys are doing a lot of good by talking to owners to make sure they know, and by offering help.

Definitely. It's a great approach. And being who they are, they're less likely than some might be to make assumptions about the garage owner, for instance.

I LOVE it! It just really proves that you can't read a book by its cover - how many people would cross the street to get away from these guys because they look "scary", and would never know what big hearts lie behind the ink? Awesome stuff...

:Yup, Mom LOVES it! What a great story. I love the pictures of the big tattooed fella feeding the kitten with a syringe. Thanks for posting the story.

Love,
Mom
