Jan Trendowski is a lawyer, motorcycle aficionado and animal lover, and for the last two years has been apart of Bikers Against Animal Cruelty (BAAC), working to rescue and provide better lives to abused and abandoned pets.The Connecticut Law Tribune
reports that Trendowski, along with the group, has raised more than $90,000 over the last three years to help animal rescue
shelters and to cover veterinary bills for pet foster families.
"I hate sad animal stories," Trendowski told the news source"This group does phenomenal things. People's view of bikers is leather, flames and skulls, but they're always doing rides to donate money to a cause."
The nonprofit organization was founded in 2007 after the Michael Vick animal cruelty case prompted them to take action. The group does not take in animals, but helps place them in foster homes by working with various rescue shelters throughout Connecticut. They also distribute educational materials at various events held throughout the state to raise awareness about animal abuse.
The group will be hosting a charity ride on October 2 to raise money and collect supplies for various animal shelters in the state.
