I'm very aware that Lana Hollenbrook and the volunteers at Forgotten Angels are amazingly dedicated and responsible animal rescuers. These folks work tirelessly and fund-raise tirelessly for the good of mistreated or neglected pigs--another species put at the mercy of our cruel species.
I highly recommend this shelter as an ethical and well-provisioned rescue centre. Its staff is dedicated to finding quality forever homes for pot bellied and other so-called 'pet' pigs. Five stars all the way!!
This is a wonderful organization that gives all of its donations to help the pigs in need. They all are truly dedicated in helping all animals.
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 would like to share my experience with pot belly pigs. I grew upon a farm in the Piedmont section of N.C. We had lots of animals,chickens,cows, hogs goats.and horses. The hogs were used for meat.We had an extremely large boar named big Red. He was the most gentle and never stayed in the hog lot. He slept in the barn. I never got to handle any of the babies unless it was time to neuter the baby boys. I hated that job. I got my first little pot belly pig December 28th 2015. My son named her ReuBen. She was the runt of the litter. Any time I have had a question or I was so frustrated I could cry, all I had to do was get in touch with these wonderful,kind, patient people and I would get an answer . I am so grateful to have found them. They are worth their weight in gold. Thank you so much!!!!!
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.
This organization never pressures people into donating. Whatever one can give is very much appreciated. They give updates on current rescues and keep people informed.
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.
I have known Lana for years, having been a "potbellied pig parent" myself. FAREC is a wonderful organization, providing outreach and support for these wonderful, and, often, misunderstood animals.
A wonderful organization that helps so many animals. Lana is a tireless worker that will not quit until the job is done.
Forgotten angels is amazing! They have helped save so many piggies an other animals! Amazing networking and fundraising!!!! Bravo!
