CLEARWATER – The Humane Highway Tour rolls through Tampa Bay this weekend with the cast of New York-based Rescue Ink. Definitely not your mother’s rescue group, there will be three opportunities to meet this army of nine tattooed, motorcycle-riding street guys who have zero tolerance for animal abuse. Rescue Ink was featured in the current issue of The New Barker, Florida’s top dog lifestyle magazine.

They’re in town to raise money for Florida Boxer Rescue and the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. They also want to raise awareness that animal abuse and neglect are not cool.

“We think abusers are losers, and we have no problem educating them about the error of their ways,” said Joe Panz, a founding member of Rescue Ink. “Hey, we’re no angels, and we’ve made plenty of mistakes ourselves. But we’ve been given a second chance, and we think neglected and abused animals deserve one too.”

On Friday, March 4, Quaker Steak and Lube in Clearwater will host a meet and greet with the guys from 6 to 9 p.m. There will be raffles and discounted food with the proceeds benefiting the Humane Society of Tampa Bay.

On Saturday, March 5, Rescue Ink will make an appearance at Bark in the Park, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay’s Annual fundraising walk. The event takes place at Al Lopez Park in Tampa and starts at 8:30 a.m.

On Sunday, March 6, Rescue Ink will lead a Ride for Rescue Poker Run that starts at Fletcher’s Harley-Davidson in Clearwater at 9 a.m. and ends up at dog-friendly Honeymoon Island State Park in Dunedin for a Beach Bash. There will be live entertainment, dog-related vendors, free dog food samples from Natura, delicious food (including a vegetarian plate) for humans, raffle items (including a 2010 Harley-Davidson XL883N Sportster Iron in Silver Denim) and a costume contest for dogs, sponsored by Fluffy Puppies in Clearwater. There are three categories in costume contest: Best Biker Dog, Best Tacky Tourist Dog and Best Dog/Owner Look-Alike.
