Mission: F5RS (Frisky Ferrets, Fuzzies, & Feathered Friends Rescue & Sanctuary) is dedicated to the practice and promotion of the idea that life is guaranteed to all healthy, sick, injured, or behaviorally unsound animals where medical and/or behavioral intervention can provide quality of life. At our facility, each animal receives individual consideration, regardless of health, age, prior abuse or trauma, or feral status. We provide care and treatment for all animals as needed, including veterinary care, appropriate nutrition, exercise, clicker training, and socialization with people and other animals.
Results: We have been able to find forever loving homes for many small mammals & rabbits and have been able to maintain and start new educational programs. We have also been able to exand our Bunnies in Baskets (Therapy Rabbits) program to be able to visit more people and start our SomeBunny to Read To children's reading program.
Target demographics: the educate on house rabbits and the care and health of small animals & parrots, and our therapy rabbits help the elderly in nursing homes, adult disabled, & children with autism.
