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.

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.

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.

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

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 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.
