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!!!

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.

Over the last several years I have helped transport many rescued pigs who have been helped by Forgotten Angels Rescue & Education Center Inc. Countless animals have been rescued, saved and placed through this organization, dating back years. Forgotten Angels serves a huge need in the rescue community for all types of animals by networking/facilitating their placement, transportation, spays/neuters, other medical needs, housing, feed and fencing. Forgotten Angels also works hard to educate people who are considering getting an animal and continually helps with education for those who need guidance, thereby preventing more displaced animals and assuring they are able to stay in their current homes. This is a terrific organization that contributes a great deal to the rescue community and the animals we all care about.

Forgotten Angels Rescue & Education Center Inc. is a wonderful organization dedicated to the respectful and fair treatment of animals. I know them in a pig-related way, and am a frequent donor. Money well spent! They are kind and fair and absolutely devoted to animals. As another reviewer stated, they most definitely ARE Angels. Without their efforts, many helpless animals would be worse off.
Kudos!

FAREC and their workers have gone above and beyond for the sake of all animals -- pigs, cats, dogs, horses, mules, you name it -- to find them safe haven when they have been in need. I couldn't begin to count the number of animals that have been saved, including many of my own when finances and health failed. Lana's tireless fund raising, ability to find placement, and follow-through are super-human.

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.

Has always been willing to answer my crazy questions about raising pot belly pigs and understanding even when I was unwilling to help back (and having a bad day). Thanks Lana for all you've done!

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.

FAREC is a wonderful organization that helps animals of all species become safe and find new homes. We adopted our beloved dog Maggie from them. They also spend alot of time educating the public about animal care. Also every dollar sent to this rescue group is spent on the animals, so I feel very good about contributing to them when I can.

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 .
