The best rescue I know! I've known F5RS for many years through the rabbit welfare network and I just wish I were closer geographically so I could adopt from them myself. Truly wonderful people.

This is an amazing rescue group. They are very knowledgable and dedicated to the animals they deal with. You can tell they care about and love animals and I would definitely recommend them to any person in need of information or wish to adopt a small pet!

I highly recommend F5RS for your pocket pet and parrot adoption needs. I've had the pleasure of working with Sassy (director), who is very knowledgeable of the animals she cares for and her heart for providing these animals with a responsible and loving home is apparent. Sassy goes beyone the call of duty in caring for her animals and is a wonderful advocate and educator for her rescue!

This lady is wonderful. Always willing to help out with all animals even those animals that were not her responsibility.
She gives great advise and knows her stuff when talking about rabbits. She helped me out with my sick rabbit, teeth trimming, questions and answers.
She is an EXPERT!!!! Thank you so much for caring for the best creatures and all you do!!! Elphaba Thropp

I have known Sassy, founder of F5RS, for a couple years. I have seen how Sassy interacts with and loves these unwanted and abused (at times severely abused) bunnies and parrots. She loves, helps and protects each animal. She makes sure each adoption is a good match for both animal and human so the animal can have their forever happy, loving home. There are very few rescues like F5RS in our area and F5RS could use the help so they can help more unwanted and abused bunnies and parrots.
I can't say enough praises for F5RS or Sassy.

I would highly recommend Ffive Rescue. Every animal in Sassy's care is treated with love, respect and great care. I have seen Sassy in action and am in total awe of her, her knowledge and her interaction with each rescue.

I adopted 2 bunnies from Craigslist. Sassy has been wonderful in answering questions that have come up. I wish I had known about this rescue before I got my buns. Kudos to Sassy for her willingness to take on such a wonderful endevour. The bunnies are lucky to have someone that cares so much.

great people who really care about the critters in their charge. They also do therapy (going to nursing homes etc) called Bunnies in baskets and are an asset to the community.

I work as a volunteer in a shelter in Alabama and Ffive was able to take in four bunnies rather quickly needing help. One had severe aggression issues. When I realized they specialized in this I was amazed and thankful that they exist! We find so few who have this knowledge. We have been in contact through this process with Sassy and have found the Rescue & Sanctuary is really great all around. She does a wonderful job socializing with the bunnies, caring for them, and getting them ready for their new homes. From what I have been told, they have a bunny loving staff, which is always the best kind willing to learn and do what needs to be done for the bunnies. Although 650 miles away, I hope to visit one day and I am just thankful she is there doing what she is for so many.
