For nearly two years, Rescue Ink has been crusading to put an end to animal cruelty and neglect.

Rescue Ink, a nonprofit organization on Long Island, was formed in 2007 by several longtime friends who were united by their love and admiration of animals.

"We met because we were all doing the same thing in our spare time: rescuing and finding homes for abandoned and abused animals," the group explains in a statement on its official website. "None of us did it for money; we did it because we cannot stand by while anyone mistreats an animal!"

According to its mission statement, the primary objective of Rescue Ink is to "take the fight against animal abuse and neglect to the next level." It intentionally operates in ways that other animal welfare organizations are either unwilling or unable to.
