Tough Guys, Tender Hearts
Island Park, N.Y.
They still hit the tattoo parlors and the highways. But these days 11 brawny bikers are more keen on saving cats, dogs and even turtles from harm as members of Rescue Ink, a nonprofit animal welfare group. Founder Robert Misseri, 39, says the guys have delivered some 750 abused and neglected critters to safety since organizing in 2007. They even reunite owners with lost or stolen pets. How? Street smarts and imposing looks—tools used when a New York woman refused to return Bella, a missing Pug, to owner Danielle Cioti of Eastchester, N.Y. Ink members showed up at the woman's door—and a week later Cioti got her dog back. Says Cioti: "They were so cool."
