When you think of bikers, the first thing that comes to mind is probably burly men with tattoos and beards. You would be right about their outward appearance, but don’t judge them based on what they look like!
Rᴇsᴄᴜᴇ Ink was a prominent biker gang between 2008 to 2014 and a non-profit organization who ꜰɪɢʜᴛs for animal rights. All volunteers, the team members are bikers, bodybuilders, former military personnel, police detectives, and even lawyers.
“Some people like to think of us as superheroes. The truth is, we are super animal lovers.” “Through the years, and through many caseloads, obstacles, and downright challenges, we remain strong and dedicated to our mission,” they said.
Rᴇsᴄᴜᴇ Ink was extremely effective at getting animals out of some pretty bad situations, even when the police wouldn’t step in to help. They’ve been known to break up illegal dog-ꜰɪɢʜᴛɪɴɢ and dog breeding rings, stop people from ᴋɪʟʟɪɴɢ stray cats, and changing the lives of neglected animals.
They made agreements with animal shelters and public organization and they cooperated with the authorities to reduce and even stop animal ᴀʙᴜsᴇ. Regular people and even famous artists joined their cause. So far, these kind people managed to offer a much better life for a lot of animals, as dogs, cats, horses, pigs and even fish.
In addition, they managed to stay within the boundaries of the law, cooperate with police and handle over 1,000 emails and up to 250 phone calls every day. They’ve ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇᴅ everything from dogs and cats to horses and a boa constrictor. One member went as far as taking a kitten wherever he went because he had to bottle feed it every couple of hours.
With their work, the bikers proved that all of them have big, kind hearts. One of the participants of Rᴇsᴄᴜᴇ Ink spent 1.5 weeks carrying a small kitten with him everywhere because he needed to feed him every few hours. Another biker once got into a pond near a sewer in order to sᴀᴠᴇ a duck.
And when those heros don’t sᴀᴠᴇ animals, they’re teaching children to be kind and lovely with animals. They actually try to prove and to teach everyone that animal ᴀʙᴜsᴇ is so wrong.
