This organization making such a huge contribution in the small animal rescue world in our area. They have gone above and beyond to make a difference with all the education programs and rescue programs. I have seen them work tirelessly to keep to the high standards that every rescue should adhere to. While caring for the smallest of innocent creatures that have been tossed aside by careless people. I have also seen the smiles that these therapy bunnies have brought from youngest to the oldest of hummanity. This rescue is all heart!

Sassy and the crew work endlessly to care for, rehabilitate, and find GOOD homes for the animals. They even take time for educational visits to teach our kids about responsibility and owning a pet!!

Even thought we ended up not adopting from this shelter they went above and beyond! We were trying to get a friend for our single bunny and took her to pick one out. She picked one out and we brought him home only to have trouble bonding them. They have a wonderful bunny bonding boot camp at the shelter and we took them back to try that. Unfortunately our girl bun does not get along with anyone! And at this time we couldn't have 2 single buns so we picked her back up after about 2 weeks of trying to bond her. I think we were all disappointed she didn't want to bond but that's her personality (at least I know it's not just me that can't bond her!)
This shelter is wonderful and so well organized! I love all of the other services they do, like the boot camp and therapy bunnies! Whenever the time comes for us to get another bun, we will definitely be going back!

Recently I came upon the rescue, Frisky Ferrets, Fuzzies and Feather Friends Rescue and Sanctuary, due to one of my bunny friends sharing their link for their Hoppy Holiday's Shopping BUNanza. I found so many wonderful items for my bunny friends for Christmas, as well as myself. Everything was beautiful and very reasonably priced. The ornaments I ordered were so nice and even the stuffed animals were in pristine condition with tags still on them. When I requested an item that had already been sold, they contacted me and went out of their way to accommodate me. Very personable people and I plan on shopping there again soon. There's nothing better than buying gifts for friends, knowing you are helping animals at the same time. Kristen from CT.

Although I'm in North West England, Sara at F5RS has helped me with advice via social media regarding rabbit health and welfare which has meant my own bunny has a better life. I've tried to donate where I can to help with their never ending vet and feed bills.
I have also had messages of concern and support when my own health takes a dip.
Sara, you rock

These bunnies have it made! Everyone who works with this organization is deeply committed to the safety and well-being of the rescued animals. Every effort is taken to place adoptable animals in homes with responsible, loving caregivers, but before that happens this organization offers them attentive care well beyond what one might expect. I hadn't seen a therapy bunny program before they started theirs. It seems to be doing good things for people in the Youngstown area so kudos!

Genuinely care about the animals they work with and make the effort to place them in caring homes. The work they do with the therapy buns is amazing and makes a huge difference in a lot of people's lives. Can't say enough wonderful things about this organization.
