Lana & the others involved in FAREC will always go that extra mile for the animals in their care - not only figuratively, but also actually in physical terms when they transport pigs & other animals across States. I live in Scotland, UK, and even over here I had such a lot of help from Lana in my early days as a "pig parent". Every donation will be used directly to benefit the animals - you can be sure of that, and that they will provide you with all the animal related assistance they can should you need it.

The organization has given me a great deal of advice when I first started looking after pigs.

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".

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.

With the economy as it is nowadays I wanted to be sure that my donation would be well spent. I am impressed with Lana's organization because of their dedication to eduation as well as rehoming and rescuing animals. Any time I have sent in donations I always receipt a receipt promptly and she is always quick to post updates so everyone knows what is going on with animals needing homes, fundraisers, sanctuaries needed help, etc. Always a pleasure to deal with her.

Excellent organization! Lana has always been dedicated to educating people about the wonders of pigs and tirelessly works to get pigs into homes. She has been a great resource for those of us who have come into the world of piggy rescue without knowing all the things we've needed to!

I have chosen to donate to Forgotten Angels Rescue & Education center because I see the results of my donation on a daily basis. FAREC works tirelessly to rescue and then place animals who are falling through the cracks in our throw-away society. Not only do they rescue, but they find both foster and permanent homes for a variety of animals especially "exotic" animals that can be hard to place, such as pot-bellied pigs. They don't stop until they are successful. They also arrange neutering, emergency medical care and transport to new "forever" homes. If this was all that they did, it would be more than enough, but the education component of this organization goes out above and beyond by working hard to educate the general public in the effort to decrease the number of animals who are abandoned or even mistreated. I cannot say enough about how much this dedicated organization is doing and they will always get my extra dollar.

The Great!

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

seeing the number of homes that have been provided for abandoned animals, by contributing to provide emergency medical care to a particular animal and getting the pictures and reports of a succcessful intervention. I hear almost on a daily basis from people who have reach out and found their particular angel through FAREC and hear of the assistance that has been given to get that special animal to a new home.

I highly recommend Forgotten Angels Rescue and Education Center to anyone in need of information on rescuing an animal, especially a pig. Their knowledge and experience is complimented by their compassion to help animals in need. Their website is informative and they are always ready to lend a helping hand.

A well-run, excellent outfit that takes to heart the needs of homeless animals. When you donate to them, you know exactly where your money goes!

The only regret that I have is that I wish I could donate more. :)

I have worked with many rescue groups and have supported FAREC because they have the desire and persistence to help animals find new homes. It is the small sanctuaries and rescues that save more animals from being forgotten and just shoved aside. I believe that anyone donating to these small organizations will be getting 100% of their donation put towards the lifesaving expenses of animal care.
