I volunteer transportation and home checking for FAREC and Lana many times every year. FAREC has never failed to help any animal with finding a new home, whether it's a sanctuary or an individual home. FAREC also heads up coordinating large rescues or the one single rescue. Farec educates the public, organizes funding for transporting, fencing, shelter, vetting, encluding spay/neutering, or anything an animal may need. I would not give my time and money to any other rescue since Lana and Farec are doing a wonderful and productive job. I see this happening daily.

As a transport volunteer and a recipient of FAREC's help with my own rescue in FL, I am constantly amazed at how many animals from all over the United States are helped daily by Lana and her dedication to FAREC and the animals. I have two pot bellied pigs at home from FAREC's rehoming efforts. I have also personally transported FAREC animals to their new homes when these abandoned, lost, hurt, and homeless animals had no where else to go. It's the best feeling in the world to see these animals get a second chance. Once an animal or owner calls needing help, Lana doesn't give up until a solution is found, whether for money to help with a surgery, housing, fencing, or to transport to a new home many miles away. Zoning issues, vetting, health or behavioral issues, and education is just part of what FAREC can provide to a sanctuary, or an individual owner. Sometimes help in the form of money is difficult to come by but FAREC will always help in some way, given enough time. I only wish FAREC could do more but the economy as it is today makes it more difficult, but certainly not impossible. One just has check out their record of accomplishments each year they have been an organization to see.

I have never dealt with a more dedicated group ever. FAREC is a very warm and caring organization that genuinely cares for the well being and quality of life of the animals. I am glad there are people like this looking out for the animal’s welfare.

I have known Lana for years ..... I met her through animal rescue .... in fact I have done alot of rescue's for her and with her ...... it's not only about the rescue but also the spay & neuter and other vet bills incurred by the animals in need ....... this is a start to finish - rescue, vetting, placing and helping those who can't afford or to help themselves without the help of others ...... Keep up the Great Work!!!

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.

With the economy as it is nowadays I wanted to be sure that my donation would be well spent. I am impressed with Lana's organization because of their dedication to eduation as well as rehoming and rescuing animals. Any time I have sent in donations I always receipt a receipt promptly and she is always quick to post updates so everyone knows what is going on with animals needing homes, fundraisers, sanctuaries needed help, etc. Always a pleasure to deal with her.

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!

I highly recommend Forgotten Angels Rescue and Education Center to anyone in need of information on rescuing an animal, especially a pig. Their knowledge and experience is complimented by their compassion to help animals in need. Their website is informative and they are always ready to lend a helping hand.

Forgotten Angels is one web site I send all my referrals to. It's one of the top in education. The pet pig community could not do with out them. I would highly recommend this agency to anyone in need of placing a pet

A well-run, excellent outfit that takes to heart the needs of homeless animals. When you donate to them, you know exactly where your money goes!

The only regret that I have is that I wish I could donate more. :)

I have worked with many rescue groups and have supported FAREC because they have the desire and persistence to help animals find new homes. It is the small sanctuaries and rescues that save more animals from being forgotten and just shoved aside. I believe that anyone donating to these small organizations will be getting 100% of their donation put towards the lifesaving expenses of animal care.

I volunteer my services to FAREC several times a year by offering state-to-state transportation for animals that would otherwise have to forfiet the chance to go to a forever home. I have never worked with a more organized group of people that seem to consistently just "get the job done!" Even with constantly changing travel destinations and schedules these folks are destined to get the animal where it needs to go. There are an amazing number of people along each route who are involved with FAREC in some capacity who offer food, lodging, rest time, or just want to give me a pat on the back for doing what I do and are always there in case of an emergency. I just can't say enough about this organization!!!
