Excellent book, impossible to put down! The goup Rescue Ink is still alive and well today, rescuing abused and neglected animals and dealing with the abusers in the most effective way. My hat goes off to them and the folks who put this book together sharing the heart-wrenching, and heart-warming, tales. ...Tails?
You ever walk somewhere and draw funny looks? You ever looked up from eating a fabulous steak dinner in a real nice restaurant and just stop mid chew because the couple across the aisle won't stop blatantly staring at you? Or maybe somebody has looked at you like you imagine they would look at Ted Bundy? I have a couple of tattoos and I get these looks everytime I wear a tank top. I can imagine how these big, tattoed bikers feel. Meet Big Ant, G, Batso, Johnny O, Eric, Des, Joe, Robert, Bruce, Angel, and the lone female, Mary. These ten heavily tattoed New York bikers (and Mary) have set out to show the world that loving animals is cool. It doesn't make you less of man. Or less of a biker. While rescuing numberous dogs, cats, pigs, horses, and ducks these guys are also showing the more ignorant folks out there that bikers are not bad. If people quit judging others on appearance alone, they may be surprised at what is under the skin.
I like this. I like these guys' stories. I got a good laugh every now and then, especially with the pig round up. I respect what these guys are trying to do, save the animals one dog or pig at a time. When they can't coax an owner to part with a neglected pet, they build a dog house for it. When families cannot afford to spay or neuter, these guys find a vet to do it for free. When they are not rescuing pets, they are visiting schools and talking to troubled kids or spreading the word and their phone numbers to encourage people to report animal abuse.
I hope there is a sequel. This was about getting to know the guys and their stories. What childhood experiences made them what they are today? Why do they care so much about animals? What made them start this group? And of course, there are rescue stories. I hope there is another, or even a series of books for those of us that don't get the National Geographic channel. I understand they have a show coming out.
Thumbs up, Rescue Ink.
