This rescue is absolutely the best rescue I've ever had any experience with. They are loving, kind, and giving. Not only do they rescue animals, they educate the public, they have wonderful therapy rabbits, but they also sell many many wonderful and reasonably priced items! From toys to scentsy candles, they've got it all!

They are so giving of care and love to each fur baby or animal in their care. Every case is given time and attention, even last minute emergencies. They stopped and answer all my questions. They relieved my anxiety and very so calming and gentle with the bun.

This is a wonderful organization! People do not really realize the time and effort that is needed to maintain the types of pets. This organization dedicates itself to taking care of these animals and educating the public about the care required for these animals. The organization also uses many of its animals as therapy pets. The individuals of this organization put their heart and soul into these animals and it shows!

It's a very good organization! They are very knowledgeable about the animals and they take excellent care of them. I love helping out because they are all around good people. If you are looking for people who know about their animals and will help you better understand how to have a happy healthy bunny!

I am proud to be a part of such a wonderful and caring rescue. where the needs of the rescue are put above anything else. This rescue operates with a very small staff, but manages to get so many things done. Sassy, the founder, is an amazing woman who gives everything (and then some) to the rescue. I know for a fact that she goes without so that the rescue can have what it needs. She puts the rescue and its needs before anything else in her life, and she manages to accomplish small miracles every day. She takes a personal interest in every furry, fuzzy or feathered soul to come to her. She finds it near impossible to turn away those truly in need. This rescue works hard not just to save lives by taking in abandoned and neglected animals, but they try very hard to get out into the community and educate people about the responsibility of having a pet and what that means. Sassy continues to learn as much as she can about how to make those in her care as happy and healthy as they can be. She also tries to spread that knowledge to anyone who has a need or interest. I have had a lot of experience with many rescues and I can honestly say that F5RS is the gold standard, and should be the example for many other rescues.
