I've known Lana and her good work long before Forgotten Angels was born, and all the way she has put needy animals (not just pigs) at the front of her priorities. This is a great organization...one that knows how to accomplish what needs to be done. Thank you, FAREC, for being who and what you are. You are greatly appreciated.

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.

Lana helped us to raise the funds to have our beloved Miss Piggy put out of her misery due to a tumor. we had been watching her posts for another pig to rescue and found her thru Lana. Arrangements were made and we went and picked up our new pot belly pig Princess Precious and are enjoying her more each day. Had it not been for Lana and her hard work Miss Piggy would have suffered needlessly and we would not have found Precious.

FAREC and their workers have gone above and beyond for the sake of all animals -- pigs, cats, dogs, horses, mules, you name it -- to find them safe haven when they have been in need. I couldn't begin to count the number of animals that have been saved, including many of my own when finances and health failed. Lana's tireless fund raising, ability to find placement, and follow-through are super-human.

Has always been willing to answer my crazy questions about raising pot belly pigs and understanding even when I was unwilling to help back (and having a bad day). Thanks Lana for all you've done!

FAREC is a wonderful organization that helps animals of all species become safe and find new homes. We adopted our beloved dog Maggie from them. They also spend alot of time educating the public about animal care. Also every dollar sent to this rescue group is spent on the animals, so I feel very good about contributing to them when I can.

I have never dealt with a more dedicated group ever. FAREC is a very warm and caring organization that genuinely cares for the well being and quality of life of the animals. I am glad there are people like this looking out for the animal’s welfare.
