FAREC continues to be a lifeline for animals in need. I've had interaction with them for many years now, and in that time they've never failed to be of immense assistance. Kudos to FAREC.

Over the years the pig community has viewed FAREC as the "go to" organization when help is needed in rehoming and transporting pigs. They have the knowledge and connections to get things done in all matters of the pet pig. With these folks at the helm, our beloved pigs are at much less risk of disaster befalling them. We'd surely accomplish much less if we didn't have their help, kindness and concern.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Don't know...am amazed at how much they take on now. So much is behind the scenes stuff, and not apparent to the average user of their services.

How would you describe the help you got from this organization?

FAREC is the "go-to" group when help is needed. Lana at FAREC has been working for the benefit of animals for a long time, and if she can't help directly, she knows who can. We operate a small private sanctuary and depend upon FAREC in many aspects, from transport matters, placement, fundraising. You name it...it gets done! We owe FAREC a debt of gratitude.

We've indeed experienced the results of FAREC's efforts. Lana of FAREC has an amazing list of contacts, and can solicit volunteers to step in and help with a myriad of problems that exisit. We live in NY, but FAREC has arranged the transport of animals both to and from us...all done by volunteers with funds raised from mostly the "Pig Community".

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

FAREC is a small group of highly effective folks who get things done. Sometimes larger isn't better, but there is no doubt but what more funding would be of immeasurable benefit. If more folks knew the extent of what gets accomplished through FAREC, there would certainly be more help forthcoming.

I have known of the work of the founders of FAREC since 1997 when I got my first potbellied pig (who is now 18 years old), and joined the Internet community for companion pigs. I've been a donor to FAREC for many years now. They are highly responsible in their work rescuing potbellied pigs and other animals, and they deserve recognition and support for their tireless and successful efforts. I am in awe of the network they have helped create and fundraising they do to help animals get rescued from sometimes ghastly circumstances, get spay/neutered, and find/transported to new homes. I am truly in awe of their work.

You ever meet people who care only for the safety and wellbeing of the animals they save? This is that group. There are no words to describe the length that they go. If people would treat people like this we'd have a perfect world. I'm proud to say I am friends with this group!!!

This rescue operates in a sustainable manner, giving every animal the space and care it needs...but what impresses me most is hte continued outreach and time spent saving animals elsewhere in the country by acting as a facilitiator for transport, spay, fostering, and finding "forever homes" for animals that would otherwise suffer terrible fates.

forgotten Angels is one of the best rescue organizations out there. They are so caring towards the animals they rescue, and they give them a forever home. The staff and volunteers are knowledgeable and caring. I wish there could be a lot more shelters and rescues with this degree of excellence.

Forgotten Angels Rescue & Education Center, Inc. is very quick about getting urgent rescue notices out to those interested in helping animals. They are great at disbursing donations to the people/organizations who assist in helping animals in need. This center doesn't just disburse donations and leaves; it sees that the animals are truly helped by observing and reporting an animal rescue from beginning to end.

The Forgotten Angels Rescue & Education Center is very knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to pot-bellied pigs! I always refer people to them who have questions about these piggies.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing how much they helped people with their pet pigs.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change a thing!
