This rescue operates in a sustainable manner, giving every animal the space and care it needs...but what impresses me most is hte continued outreach and time spent saving animals elsewhere in the country by acting as a facilitiator for transport, spay, fostering, and finding "forever homes" for animals that would otherwise suffer terrible fates.

forgotten Angels is one of the best rescue organizations out there. They are so caring towards the animals they rescue, and they give them a forever home. The staff and volunteers are knowledgeable and caring. I wish there could be a lot more shelters and rescues with this degree of excellence.

Absolutley wonderful people who's interest is 100% for the animals and helping animals in need. Weather it is finding a home for a chicken, dog, pig horse or any animal that is homeless or going to become homeless these people work to find them homes. I could not say enough nice things about this group.

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

helping find a pig

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

fund them with all the money they needed so no animal would be left homeless

This rescue and it's workers are Angels amount us! They go over and beyond trying to save creatures that have been thrown away and abused. I have followed them for several years now and they are a Blessing!

I've been an active member of the pot-bellied pig rescue community for several years and have fostered over a dozen pigs during that time. FAREC is an outstanding rescue organization -- one of the very best -- this is a very dedicated, trustworthy and simply amazing group!

I've been aware of this organization for many years. They NEVER fail to rescue, care for, and find forever places for the animals. I used to work in pig rescue. I know how difficult the task they undertake is.

Forgotten Angels Rescue & Education Center, Inc. is very quick about getting urgent rescue notices out to those interested in helping animals. They are great at disbursing donations to the people/organizations who assist in helping animals in need. This center doesn't just disburse donations and leaves; it sees that the animals are truly helped by observing and reporting an animal rescue from beginning to end.

The Forgotten Angels Rescue & Education Center is very knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to pot-bellied pigs! I always refer people to them who have questions about these piggies.

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

hearing how much they helped people with their pet pigs.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change a thing!

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Do nothing. The organization is just as it should be already.
