The absolute best shelter that gave me my 2 sweet buns... I have yet to meet someone who has a love for animals like Sassy... all these furbabies love her and she loves them as her own. They are all vetted, litter trained and loved more than life. She also does so many things for the community with her therapy buns and reading programs.

Even in these uncertain times, F5RS has been a beacon of hope. Many of the programs and adoption events have been put on hold, but Sassy and Co are always available to help, whether it be the answer to a question about rabbit care or offering good advice about a concerning bunny behavior.
F5RS are kind hearted wonderful people that in spite of everything 2020 provide much needed GOOD for not only the animals but also the community.

F5RS is, hands down, the best rescue I have ever had the privilege to encounter. We've had the honor of adopting two fantastic rabbits from them. You will never meet a more genuine person than Sassy (and her spectacular team). The lengths that she will go for her rescue and the sweet animals that she takes care of is outstanding. Her knowledge is beyond impressive. You can tell that each and every rescued animal in her care is not only loved, but cared for as an individual. Each and every soul matters each and every time. That is a sign of not only a very special rescue, but also a very special person.

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!

I adopted my rabbit in May of this year. Her name was Savannah at the time, now Penelope. I fell in love with her picture and instantly knew she belonged with me. Upon meeting her I was told she had a very rough start in life. Meaning she was kept outside roaming around for the first 5 months. Basically she was a feral rabbit. Sassy worked and worked with her to get her associated with people to be able to adopt her out and have a good rest of her life. I truly believe that Penelope would not be here with me today if it wasn’t for Sassy at F5RS

I love what they do for abandoned rabbits. People don't research what a rabbit needs to be happy and healthy so bunnies are often dumped when people get tired of the unexpected bunny behaviors (for example: my bunny is eating a book I left on the floor as I type this!!)

Catching buns who have been dumped outside is challenging, but they do it. Bunnies need specialized vets who are typically expensive, yet F5RS rescues get great medical care. F5RS is just an amazing rescue. I love their posts and what they do for buns.

Thank You!

We adopted a bunny from this organization and ever since then have followed them. They are the most caring people who work very hard to keep the organization going, all for the well being of the bunnies. They always keep their animal lovers up to date with what is going on at the rescue and if an animal needs medical help they even stay with it at the hospital over night, if needs to be or if it is good for the well being of the bun. Just a wonderful caring organization. We have been following them for many years and the service and care has never disappointed. Wonderful people who deserve all the support they can get.

F5RS is a great rescue. I love how engaged they are in their community - everything from working with school-age children on general bunny care to their Bunnies-In-Baskets program. You can tell how deeply the owner feels for each and every creature in her care. She also doesn't hesitate no matter how dire the situation may look at first. I have seen her pull off some amazing turnarounds into happy, healthy, binkying bunnies!

This is an amazing rescue. Their critters get so much love and care. Sassy, the lady who runs it, will help any time of day or night when a rabbit or another creature needs help. She brings the bunnies to visit our special needs nonprofit, which makes everyone's day. Our folks have learned so much from Sassy and the rabbits. They go out and do so much good - and provide education - in the community, with a "read to some bunny" program, visits to the Ronald McDonald House, to special events, and more.

Wonderful caring staff who came to my home on short notice to capture a domestic floppy ear mature rabbit! The handler quickly caught, inspected and befriended this rabbit within minutes. She committed to getting veterinary care in a day or two and then homing the rabbit with training to prepare him for adoption. Highly professional and caring. I cannot thank her enough, she saved my day and stray rabbit! Jennifer P. 6/19/2020

My Daughter Ella volunteered last summer for the rescue. That is how we got to know Sassy. Sassy helped us when we needed to board our two hamsters last summer, and she also helped us board our two Guinea pigs this summer for vacation. She rescues rabbits as well as other small animals. Ella and I have the upmost respect for Sassy and her rescue. She's addresses all of the medical needs of the rabbits to get them healthy and ready for adoption. All of the rescues get spayed and neutered as well. She also conducts a reading program to youngsters where they read to the bunnies. She does nursing home visits for touch therapy, as well as visits to The Ronald McDonald Home to raise the spirits of sick children and their families. Sassy and her rescue are an asset to our community. Thank you Sassy and your rescue!

One of the most amazing shelters around... adopted my 1st bun from them over 3 years ago and now he has a bunwife I adopted from there a few months ago. Sassy is the most loving caring person I know who still visits and loves my buns as if they were her own children. The support and community events they do are unlike any other shelter around.

F5RS volunteers, 1st and foremost, have the heart of a servant with the best interest of the animals at the forefront. Led by Sassy, this rescue is knowledgeable, compassionate and driven to make miracles happen and lives better every day. I adopted my buns Winston, Arlo, and Annie there. One of the many things I value is their experience and knowledge; they are there to help even after your new family member comes home. Also that they love and get to know their animals and adopters for the best possible match.

I have worked with F5RS for 5 years now. The level of dedication Sassy and the volunteers have to making this non-profit a success is apparent in all they do. Not only do they effort to place rabbits in caring, forever homes, and provide sanctuary to those who are not adoptable , but their specially trained therapy rabbits provide comfort to senior citizens in nursing care, patients at Ronald McDonald house in Cleveland, and autistic children. They also encourage literacy with their Read-to-a-Bunny programs. What also separates F5 RS from other rescues is the effort they make to be self-sufficient from their Etsy store and craft show appearances. I commend Sassy and volunteers for their care and commitment to the animals they serve, and the community they support and educate.

I have been a supporter of F5RS for several years now. Their care and compassion toward abandoned animals is exemplary, and their fiscal responsibility beyond reproach. I have never been more proud of this organization than I am for the relationship they have forged with Ronald McDonald's House of Cleveland. Yes, they rescue, bunnies and birds and other small furries, but they share the unconditional love of these creatures with children that are in pain and in need of the comfort they can provide.

We first met Sara and her rescue at an event for dogs and cats. We had approached F5RS to help with our Judy after her spaying. They welcomed our questions and concerns with kindness, and were so knowledgeable about the process. We had recently lost a bun after a complications from his nueter, so we were hesitant, but F5RS calmed our worries. We had Judy spayed and Sara met us at the vets to pick her up for her staycation. I can not thank her and her rescue enough for giving us our Judybeans back safe and in one piece. During her boarding, Sara gave her meds, food when she quit eating and even had a vet on call for any worries!! Such a wonderful rescue that has a huge heart for critters. F5RS has become family in our house and I would recommend them to anyone that has a furry family member!

F5RS is incredible. They are genuine, caring, knowledgable and full of heart. We recently had the honor of adopting from this organization. Their knowledge and help in the process was GREATLY appreciated. The deep care and love that they have for their furry and feathered friends is not only an inspiration, but it's a beautiful example of second chances and putting families together. I could never thank them enough for the gift they've given not only us, but so many others. They really and truly are the best.

Our national honor society went out to F5RS to volunteer, and we had a great time! The animals were so much fun to work with, and you can easily tell that the owner loves and cares for all of them as they wait for their forever homes. She had personal stories to share about each rabbit and bird, which helped us get to know them as we cleaned cages. We loved working here, and hope to come back in the future!

I am a volunteer, board member and the treasurer but as of Jan 2015 I became an adopter from F5RS! I adopted two guinea pigs. I was a first time guinea pig momma but felt totally prepared. Sassy provided me with books and sources for other info to learn more about guinea pigs. I was able to help take care of them and handle them which helped me decide which two were the perfect ones for me! I was able to ask questions about what supplies I needed. The rescue has helped me with pet sitting when I'm gone and help with grooming needs. I have bought treats and toys for them from F5RS's own store. It has the been a very positive adopting experience and the pigs are very spoiled!

F5RS is a wonderful small animal rescue and sanctuary. All animals in their care are well-cared for and well-loved. Sassy runs the organization and she could not have a bigger heart or a greater devotion for the work that she does. The F5RS Bunnies in Baskets Therapy Rabbits bring joy to many in the community, visiting nursing homes, libraries, schools, and even a children's hospital. I cannot say enough great things about F5RS and the awesome things that they do for both people and animals.

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 is by far the best small animal rescue in the area. Many animals have been rescued, rehabilitated and some have become therapy bunnies used in multiple programs. These programs, such as bunnies in baskets, visits nursing homes, hospitals and other places that being love and joy to many people. Read to a bunny is also a great program that visits multiple libraries each month so that Children are encouraged to read a book to the bunnies. A

Essentially one of the best rescues for bunnies and birds.

I answered a craigslist ad for a "bunny that bites" thinking she didn't have much of a chance. I brought her home and, yes she was aggressive. One of my Facebook friends told me to message Sassy at F5RS as she was accomplished with these rabbits. This dear lady spent many hours with me online teaching me how to modify the behaviors. Later I found out the bunny was blind. I decided to get her a mate to be her sight. Again Sassy spent hours with me helping me bond the two. Holly now has Koko and he is the best seeing eye bunny ever! Sassy never asked for a thing in return other than a happy ending. That is how these people are. They are totally committed to the animals and giving to the community. They help the elderly through therapy; they help disabled children through therapy and reading programs; and they collect items for the homeless. Though I have never actually met them (I would love to) I think they are among the most beautiful souls that I have ever had the privelage to call friends.

This is a wonderful rescue and was very helpful and knowledgeable. I had found a bunny thrown out on the stress in pouring down rain, took it home and this wonderful rescue took him in, got him neutered and will find the perfect home for him. I was very impressed when I brought him to the rescue and met with Sara, she was extremely knowledgeable about the animals she takes in. It is a great place

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!

This rescue is amazing as it is nearly self sustaining. Not only is it an animal rescue but some of the animals are trained at the Rescue to be therapy pets. The founder of F5RS is an amazing person.

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

I went to F5RS looking for rabbit to adopt and bond with my rabbit who had lost his mate. I found that and so much more. They are great people and they do great work. I frequently drove an hour to go and volunteer with them. They work tirelessly to save animals and to promote proper care and knowledge of small animals. As a nonprofit rescue, they struggle with funding every single day, but they never hesitate to give back to the community. They volunteer, they visit, they donate and help spread awareness of other organizations that also serve the community. They are much more than a rescue saving animals, they are making an impact far beyond the animals they save.

F5RS staff are the most caring, loving, genuine, and knowledgable small group I've ever met!! They have helped me so much, have a wonderful online store which proceeds go 100% to their nonprofit needs like vet bills, and have offered endless assistance and information to me about my two fur children!!!

I cannot even begin to say how great this non-profit is! They do such amazing work by touching the lives of all types of individuals from older adults to children with autism. The team is knowledgeable, professional and courteous. They have such a big heart to not only rescue rabbits and other animals in need but to also use those animals to help and heal others. If I could give them more then five stars I would because they are one organization that sure deserves the recognition! Cheers to you in helping to make the world a better place.

F5RS is an amazing small animal rescue and sanctuary run by an amazing group of people. There is no better place to adopt your new small and furry or feathered family member from. They are very knowledgable and willing to share their knowledge to help adopters better care for their new pets. They also do a ton of community outreach and education projects. Just a great group!!
