Big, tough, tattooed guys save animals from abuse in Rescue Ink Unleashed

A group of big men sporting large tattoos are on a mission to save animals in danger in Rescue Ink Unleashed, a new weekly series on the National Geographic Channel.

It premieres Sept. 25 at 10 p.m.

Formed over 15 years ago, Rescue Ink is consisted of eight motorcycle-riding, tough guys who share a love for animals and determination to save them in New York's war on animal abuse.

A rescue organization unlike any other, Rescue Ink is a closely-knit group of eight colorful characters who pursue some of the worst offenders in animal abuse. Group members come from diverse backgrounds: former bouncers, security guards, a retired New York City detective, and survivors of violent and turbulent pasts, some even had run-ins with the law. Together now they are seeking redemption and justice in their mission to rescue the innocent and helpless animals from abuse.

In each one-hour episode of “Rescue Ink Unleashed”, members follow up on leads in the New York metro area. Taking an average of 100 calls a week at their headquarters on Long Island, they work hard to confront alleged animal abusers, rescue fighting dogs, investigate stolen animals and encourage owners to give up their pets if it is in the best interest of the animals.
