Unlikely heroes

As I veg out on my couch, flipping through channels, I decided to pop on the Ellen show!
I love her.. she is sosososo hysterical and has some great guests.

Well...todays guests left me with a tear in my eye.

There is a group of 5 men.. and they call themselves Rescue Ink. They are all about 6'5, Intimidating as hell, resemble bouncers... have tattoos covering their bodies, and are the founding members of one of the most admirable pet rescue groups I have ever seen. 

These seemingly intimidating men have rescued countless animals, and are working to put them in safe homes with loving families.
They are a non-for profit organization, they are kind, and best yet they are from LONG ISLAND!!!
If you are aware of an animal abuse incident and are not from the local area, they have actually established groups through out the country... if there is not a Rescue Ink. near you, they will refer you to an animal rescue group that CAN help you.
They do not turn down any case...they are passionate, determined, and the most unlikely heros.

This just proves that you cant judge a book by its cover.

Wow, great group of people. I absolutely love it when people smash the stereotypical image of what an animal activist or animal lover looks like.

I wish I could watch Ellen. She comes on while I'm at work. I should really invest in cable, so I can get Tivo.
