This is the true story of ten tough and tattooed bikers who rescue animals in danger while spreading the message that “Abusers Are Losers.” When Joe Panz, Johnny O, Batso, Big Ant, G, Angel, Des, and Eric initially met 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. Together they decided to form Rescue Ink to combat the problem of animal abuse on a bigger scale. Working from tip-offs from concerned neighbors and anonymous sources, they have rescued countess animals. Former Newsday writer Denise Flaim chronicles just what these brawny bikers, who will stop at nothing within the bounds of the law, can teach us about respecting the creatures in our midst.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Flaim ably blends colorful profiles of the individual members…with journalistic accounts of their interventions with ‘trappers, torturers, and garden-variety dirtbags’…The all-volunteer group’s commitment inspires and endears.” Publishers Weekly
“Angel, Joe Panz, Batso, Big Ant, Eric, Johnny O, Des, G—big guys with big hearts, the men of Rescue Ink use their street skills to protect metro NYC’s furred, feathered, and scaled. We learn about each man—what motivates them to volunteer for this type of work, how they approach it, why they’ve become so invested in saving the city’s most helpless residents. It’s clear that these large tattooed men, who share a passion for animals as well as hot rods and motorcycles, are a force to be reckoned with.” Bark magazine
“Narrator Tom Weiner gives a dazzling performance with his stately and resonant delivery…giving it his trademark authoritative air but sounding none too pompous at the same time—perfect for a…saga like this.” AudioFile
“Reader Tom Weiner…enthusiastically recounts their adventures with charismatic energy. While there are a few four letter words included, this is really a story suitable for all ages.” SoundCommentary.com
