Farec is such a wonderful organization. The work they do for animals in need and the educational resources they provide is impressive.

They are truly a blessing.

I have been a donor for FAREC for many years because of the great help FAREC and Lana have been to the "pig community." There are so few resources for pigs and Lana and FAREC have their finger on the pulses of every resource there is. If there is a lack of a needed resource, FAREC creates the resource. Farec has organized fund raiseing for medical care of injured pigs and for neutering of animals before they go to their forever homes. Relays of volunteers to transport animals across the country to a forever home have been organized. I always see whee my donations are going--to help and support finding each homeless pig a forever home.

I have chosen to donate to Forgotten Angels Rescue & Education center because I see the results of my donation on a daily basis. FAREC works tirelessly to rescue and then place animals who are falling through the cracks in our throw-away society. Not only do they rescue, but they find both foster and permanent homes for a variety of animals especially "exotic" animals that can be hard to place, such as pot-bellied pigs. They don't stop until they are successful. They also arrange neutering, emergency medical care and transport to new "forever" homes. If this was all that they did, it would be more than enough, but the education component of this organization goes out above and beyond by working hard to educate the general public in the effort to decrease the number of animals who are abandoned or even mistreated. I cannot say enough about how much this dedicated organization is doing and they will always get my extra dollar.

I have had a good deal of contact with Forgotten Angels Recue and Education Center (FAREC) through pig information and chat sites. I am keenly aware of the tireless work Lana Hollenback does rescuing, caring for, and re-homing animals in need. Lana is a dedicated member of these sites and works with them to find forever homes for the tragic numbers of rescued pigs who have been cruelly treated or abandoned. This work is crucially important at a time when pot belly and other domesticated or 'petterized' pigs are crowding animal shelters and rescue centres throughout the United States and Canada.
The work that Lana and other animal rescuers do is vitally important and without the support of concerned people and funders, their super-human efforts will be in vain. FAREC under Ms. Hollenback's direction has saved thousands of animal lives and continues its mission with love, dedication, and great skill.
Please support this crucially important and humanitarian organisation to continue rescuing, caring for and re-homing animals in need.
Thank you.

I have known Lana and others in this terrific group for 20 years. This nonprofit has, and will continue to do, a professional and personal service for a lot of potbelly pigs and other precious animals who have been thrown away through one means or another. They do it all with love in their hearts for each animal they work with. The group is dedicated to providing almost every service available to the animals that come in... from arranging spaying and neutering to transporting to other locations. Congratulations to everyone involved in Forgotten Angels Rescue, they are earning stars in their crowns for the excellent job they are doing.

I took in a foster pig thinking I was going to have it for a very long time. This charity helped move the pig here and found a home for her in only a couple of weeks. It was a pleasure working with them and I would do it again in a heart beat.

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.

I have known of the work of the founders of FAREC since 1997 when I got my first potbellied pig (who is now 18 years old), and joined the Internet community for companion pigs. I've been a donor to FAREC for many years now. They are highly responsible in their work rescuing potbellied pigs and other animals, and they deserve recognition and support for their tireless and successful efforts. I am in awe of the network they have helped create and fundraising they do to help animals get rescued from sometimes ghastly circumstances, get spay/neutered, and find/transported to new homes. I am truly in awe of their work.
