Default Is it necessary to freeze?

I have been asked by a raw feeding friend who has big dogs about the necessity of freezing before feeding. She can get lots of fresh game (rabbit, pheasant, pigeon mostly) but doesn't have the space to freeze it all. If she skins and guts it, is it safe to feed without freezing first?
I can't find a definitive answer, and if I get given a fresh rabbit I always freeze it as it will make a lot of Chi sized meals.
I am mainly thinking tapeworms could be present in the flesh, are they likely/common in these types of game and does freezing definitely kill them if they are?
