We adopted an adorable bunny from F5RS as a companion for my bunny. They made the process so easy and I knew every step of the way that they just wanted what was best for the animals. They took hours to do meet and greets until we found the perfect bunny. Not only that but now they tirelessly groom both bunnies (one has an extremely difficult coat). They are so dedicated. A truly amazing rescue!

I was first introduced to F5RS several years ago at a business expo. It was the first time I had heard of certified therapy rabbits! Since I own a therapy practice with a variety of therapies, I asked them if they would like to join us for an upcoming family event. They did and have been volunteering their time and expertise on numerous other occasions--our annual Halloween party, story times, and our summer reading program, Some Bunny To Read To. The volunteers know and care so much about their animals, and the kids just love interacting with the bunnies!

These people are utterly devoted to the well being of the animals in their care, and yours. The most knowledgeable I have come across in behavior, training, grooming, diet, bonding etc. And their homemade treat products are awesome too! I don't think you will find people that devote more time to the cause then they do! Sassy is the best!

The name of this site says it all.... Great Nonprofit. The director and volunteers do everything they possibly can for the animals they take in. The crew goes above and beyond what others do. I’ve adopted two bunnies from them and have directed friends to F5RS as well. All of my communication with this rescue has been pleasant and professional. I would highly recommend others to look into this group for their adoption needs. Truly a valuable resource to all animal welfare. Keep up the great work and thanks for your commitment…

We can't say enough! They are so dedicated to the bunnies. Everything they do revolves around the animals. They truly love all of them. We adopted our lop from F5 to bond with our Netherland dwarf and it wasn't going very well. Sassy said she thought she could bond them. Well 3 weeks later we had bonded bunnies! We never thought it could of happened. She is the Bunny Whisperer!

I have turned to this rescue many many times for advice for my 9 rescue rabbits and every time they have been generous with their time and help and resources. I can't say enough good things about these wonderful caring knowledgeable people. They are angels to the animals in their care and the entire bunny community.

There are few who care as much for small animals as Sassy does. She is constantly tending to their needs, both physical and emotional. In a world where most people don't understand or have a desire to adequately care for their pets, F5RS is a reminder to me of how we ought to show compassion to these little creatures. I am very happy to support this organization, through its fundraising efforts, as they strive to provide safe, temporary and ultimately, permanent good homes for each of the animals in their charge.
