As the Director of The Pig Preserve, I have worked with FAREC since its inception and with members of their staff for many years prior. Although our paths cross on dogs and cats occasionally, most of my dealings with FAREC involve the re-homing or rescue of pigs...miniature pigs, farm pigs and even the occasional feral pig.

They are an excellent organization to work with and have a diverse nationwide network of contacts they can call on to help with rescues, foster homes and permanent adoptions. I have never had a bad experience with this organization and they are responsible for saving the lives of hundreds of animals over the years.

They often do a great deal of education, especially when it comes to educating new owners of miniature pigs, which helps keep a lot of pigs out of the rescue pipeline by educating their caretakers who were contemplating getting rid of the animal.

FAREC has always thought and worked outside of the conventional box of animal rescue, education and re-homing and has pulled off some near miraculous large rescues over the years.

A very professional group and very easy and pleasant to work with.

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.

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!!!

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!
