F5RS goes above and beyond on so many levels. Not only do they provide exceptional care to animals who truly need it, but they also work very hard to find them proper and safe forever homes. It's also very encouraging to see an organization take the time to educate individuals on their cause and teach them how to properly care for animals. Overall, there are only positive things to say about Sassy and her team!

We boarded our bunnies at F5RS while on a week vacation. They went above and beyond taking care of them! Sassy even bonded our bunnies (which we all thought the female was unboandable from not getting along with other bunnies). We were amazed and so impressed they were bonded and even groomed before being picked up. Sassy goes above and beyond taking care of all the animals as well as doing the BIB program! Our son loves visiting the bunnies in the library and reading to them. I highly recommend F5RS.

This organization is seriously one of the best I've ever encountered. As an animal lover, I've been in contact with many local rescues and shelters and F5RS are like family and have went above and beyond allcthw time every time, no matter WHAT. I am beyond thankful for them.

This group was there for me when I needed a safe place for my girls. My one girl had health problems and she was with them when she crossed the bridge. My Lilly was with someone who loves her as much as me.

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!!
