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.
PLEASE SAVE AN ANIMAL BY DONATING
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!!!
