Don’t judge a book by its cover, they say, but the truth is that we do judge others based on their appearance without even knowing a thing about their personality or their life. Bikers are one of those people society labels as fierce, tough, and troublesome. Truth is most of these people are just gentle giants.
Take Joe Panz and his biker buddy G for example. They are always going an extra mile for the animals in need of help and protection. Their former organization, Rescue Ink, has changed the lives of a huge number of dogs over the years.
It all started when they saw a photo of an abused Pit Bull used as a bait dog by some cruel people. The poor animal was covered in wounds and his ears were missing. It was obvious it suffered excruciating pain, and sadly, there were more dogs like him out there. The photo’s caption, which was shared by Humane Society, said that the Pit Bull was rescued from an illegal dog-fighting ring in Kentucky. It turned out that info was more than enough for Joe and G to take a flight to Kentucky and take matters in their own hands.
After a thorough investigation, they gathered enough information about the illegal ring and handed it to the authorities. The ring was soon closed and all the dogs were rescued and placed at shelters.
It felt so good for all those dogs to be rescued that the friends founded the Rescue Ink organization. “When we pull up, they don’t know what we’re going to do,” one member, Anthony “Big Ant” Rossano said. “They don’t know what we’re capable of doing. So it helps out big time.”
Now, although the organization is shut, many of the former members are still heavily involved in rescuing animals.
As for the Pit Bull that started all of this, they named him Rebel and gave him a forever home.
