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!!!

I'm certainly impressed with their devotion particularly to pigs and their education of people wanting to adopt

Forgotten Angels Rescue and Education Center provides a valuable service to animal welfare. The efforts of this organization along with the network of other rescue folks they have garnered have saved countless pigs from becoming part of the grim statistics. This is a great go to organization when there is a pig in need.

I have known Lana for many years and this is a very informative and educational website. I send many people here a year for education and help that they need for their pot belly pig. This organization has helped not only a single pig but very large rescues that otherwise would all be euthanized. They work with many other organizations for rescue, transportation and I can say I know a lot of animals who have been saved. Education has also helped people keep their animals in their homes instead of abandoning them.

The people who work Forgotten Angels Rescue and Education Center are always helping pigs find homes. It does not matter where in the U S there is always someone getting other people to help with transport, or anything else that can be done to help pigs and other animals to find a safe home. Also, home checks are done, animal abuse is looked into among a lot of other things. I have not seen to many animals not find homes through the organization .

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!
