Intimidation seems to work in this society. I recently called ASPCA about a neighbor whose dog was neglected and abused.....and NOTHING was done. I should of called Rescue Ink.

The guys with Rescue Ink took it upon themselves to do something that noone else would step up to do. I have seen where they thought abuse was occurring, but they learned that they needed to educate the pet owner rather than take the animals away. They are all about education. Read the book written about them. It's very enlightening.

As a 12 year volunteer for a rescue who specializes in Bully Breeds, I think Rescue Ink is the best thing coming. I don't care how the job gets done as long as the animal is safe. People who abuse their animals don't deserve to be treated with respect.

I fully support rescue ink. However, I saw one case where they were going after some guy for allegedly shooting cats with his pellet gun. Now I am against this (obviously), but I think they should also be going against people who cause the problems in the first case...like the people who are CREATING the whole stray cat problem. I mean they are out there crapping/pissing in backyards, scratching up cars ect... and there is just no reason for people to harbor so many outdoor cats. Of course, the answer isn't to kill or harm the cats, but prevent owners from attributing to the problem. I think what these guys do for animals is great though. They just need to be careful, there are crazy people out there and they aren't the cops. In this day and age, a confrontation about such a thing as animal cruelty could quickly escalate to someone getting hurt or killed. That's the only problem with taking justice into your own hands.

As you said, they are not law enforcement. But they're doing what they can, often in the area of education.

GOD=BLESS=RESCUE=INK!! I wish there were more groups like them. People who refuse to treat animals with kindness and care shouldn't have them in the FIRST place! It seems the abusers come out on top and the animals pay with their lives or pay by having to tolerate the abuse until death murcifully takes them. Anyone who is an animal abuser is actually a COWARD! They can only harm a helpless being but they'd never stand up to someone equal to them!

So let me get this straight as long as you are helping animals it is OK to take the law into your own hands?? So if someone picks on my kids at school I should be perfectly in my rights to go out and get some fat wannabe tough guys to dress up like a biker gang and go harass the bully

Der Beobatcher....They Don't take the law into their own hands. "The Law" doesn't care about animals and somebody has to. Have you ever called the animal control in your area about an abused animal or any emergency involving an animal and they never come? Animals are the LEAST protected of all.

Thank you Mary for explaining that without attacking.

Yes, there are laws out there to protect the animals, but the question remains why these abusers are not prosecuted?

The gentleman of "Rescue Ink" are not only there saving, but educating. Here is an educational tip for everyone; did you know that the Amish run some of the largest puppy mills in this country?!

Der Beobatcher...."They Don't take the law into their own hands." "The Law" doesn't care about animals and "SOMEBODY HAS TO." The somebody that has to IS taking the law into their own hand as they are not Law enforcement personnel they are just a bunch of wannabe tough guys. and as for explaining without attacking nice job rescueman7

If they are educating people about the proper way to take care of their animals, they are not enforcing any kind of law. When they do take an animal, they have the owner sign the animal over to them. What they are very good at is convincing people that they really are not treating the animal kindly. In many cases, the owners are more than willing to give the animal over to them. They have provided people with appropriate kennels & doghouses, supplied food for people who couldn't afford it & frequently see to it that vet care is provided. Where's the harm in doing any of that?

For those of you who agree that Rescue Ink are a bunch of "motorcycle goons who intimidate people," let me tell you, I see dogs on a daily basis brought in with broken bones, holes in their heads and necks, faces and bodies damaged by punches and kicks, dog fighting, heavy chains, skin-and-bone from starvation and neglect, a female dog left out in the cold having puppies, a pit bull with a broken back left out in a field, in freezing rain all night...shall I go on?? Do you watch the show? Do you see the condition of those animals and the disregard for them? Those men are NOT bullies. Unfortunate Animals need MORE humans like Rescue Ink to protect them.
