What’ll It Be–the Puppy or a Knuckle Sandwich?

Wait … I don’t know … wait … why, yes, this is the cutest yet most unsettling thing I’ve seen all week. What’s not to love/fear about the juxtaposition of a fuzzy widdle puppy nuzzled against the tattooed face of a Hell’s Angel? Gives you a smile with a shiver.

Actually, these ominous-looking, hog-riding, crime-fighting softies call themselves Rescue Ink and are the latest recipient of PETA’s Compassionate Action Award.

In New York City and surrounding areas, this burly clan responds to emergency calls day and night. And for no charge, they will show up at the doors of any would-be animal abusers to strike knee-knocking fear into what’s left of their hearts in behalf of voiceless animals.

In addition to making abusive animal guardians piddle themselves, their service to the community is far-reaching. From search and rescue missions to giving out free doghouses or simply providing the elderly with cat food, no animal is overlooked.

You can read more about these freedom fighters here. Note the tragic failure to make mention of our illustrious award anywhere in the piece. I suppose recognizing two heavyweight animal-defending groups in one article might imply that there’s a whole movement going on or something.
