New National Geographic TV show: Rescue Ink

Discussion in 'Rescue & Adoption' started by StaffyLovin, Sep 20, 2009.

  1. Rescue Ink

    you gotta check out these bad boys! PITTY ADVOCATES!!
    RESCUE INK is a rescue group unlike any you’ve seen before: a bunch of tattooed, motorcycle-riding tough guys who have joined together to fight animal cruelty, educate abusers and help resolve situations other rescue groups can’t – or won’t – handle themselves.

    Some of the guys grew up in the projects, some had their brushes with the law, some used their smarts to survive, even thrive on the streets. But that was then, this is now, and today they all share a common goal: Using every means within the thin boundaries of the law, they persuade and educate abusers about the right way to treat animals.

    Like many of the animals they save, the members of Rescue Ink know what it’s like to be given a second chance in life. And they’re using theirs to help the animals, no matter what it takes.
    What makes them so effective? Take a look. Would you mess with these guys?

    Joe Panz grew up in a Queens neighborhood notorious for wise guys, where taking care of business is a way of life, and you are only as good as your word. He brings that premium on honor and loyalty – as well as some really high decibels – to every rescue. When Joe’s not bailing out pit bulls or catching feral cats, he’s working out at the gym, cruising on his Harley or hanging out with his tiger-striped PIT MIX, Bond.

    With his “Clark Kent†glasses and ski cap, Johnny O’s look is best described as “coffeehouse biker.†A former personal bodyguard, he loves the martial arts, reflected in his tattoos of symbolic Chinese animals, from a fiery dragon to a contemplative crane. Like all the guys, Johnny O is a PIT-BULL ADVOCATE– he owns two, look-alikes named Lucy and Chuck – and he educates about their undeservedly bad rap every chance he gets.

    How is that? I have watched the show the past two weeks and they are great. They use a "tuff love" kind of approach, which I really like.

    While some of what these guys say may be incorrect information, I like the show. I think it's about time that there's a group of people that take the 'no nonsense' approach. You are an animal abuser, hand over your dog, cat, whatever.... or get your ass beat. It's very simple. :)

    I merged this thread to an already existing thread. :)

    I watched it the other night with the Rotty and Pit bull chained out back of some guys house. They said something that made me cringe.. "Chaining these guys makes them mean." I hoped they meant chaining them on such a short chain, but, Im not so sure thats what they meant. Blek.

    Alma, I saw that episode and said the same thing.

    There was also a part about human aggression and dog aggression. The one guy had to rehome his Rott because it had dog aggression and the Rott that was rescued had some issues. The rescue guy was comparing the two and as we know, DA and HA are completely different behaviours. I was happy to see the rescue work with the Rott.
