An Animal Rescue Group Unlike Any Other - Rescue Ink
Bookmark and Share
Here's how Rescue Ink's website describes them - "Rescue Ink is 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. 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." They've been in the news a lot lately and have a book and a TV show now. Susan will talk to Rescue Ink's Johnny O , to get the scoop on what it's like behind the scenes of the organization, the animal rescues and find out what it is during their missions that we don't see on the TV show.

Plus, find out about the "Olympics for Dogs" from Ken Scarnegie, founder of the the Classic K9 Show.

Guest(s) Appearing on this Episode
Johnny O
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.
