BIKERS FORM DOG RESCUE ORGANIZATION - “When you feel there’s nothing left in the world, with nothing left to be here for, having a dog can save your life,” says Wolf, who speaks for Justice Rescue. “Dogs are really why we’re still here.”
A dog rescue organization called Justice Rescue is made up of mostly bikers in the Philadelphia area. In addition to rescuing dogs, Justice Rescue also investigates dog-fighting activities and provides training to help make the dogs more adoptable. Here’s more from the Daily News:
To an abused or neglected animal in the Philly region, Wolf and Cujo are saviors. To everyone else, particularly anyone responsible for an animal’s misery, they look like outlaw bikers — burly men with tattooed biceps that knock real hard on a front door when there’s a problem…each insists the group is not a bunch of vigilantes out to harass anyone with a pit bull. They work hand-in-hand with local police departments and animal-welfare agencies and are careful not to step on anyone’s toes when it comes to other investigations.
Wolf, 37, owns a motorcycle-and-auto-repair shop. He started the rescue group with fellow member Crash about a year ago. Today, they have dozens of volunteers who help with surveillance…They have a real disike for pit-bull fighting and know all the telltale signs, whether it’s a worn-out patch of dirt in a playground or a particular odor rising from a vacant lot. A dog’s collar can give it away.
It sounds like defenseless dogs in the Philadelphia area now have a group of strong advocates on their side. Click here for the full story and here for more information and pictures from the Justice Rescue Facebook page.
