    Hi

    I am trying to compile a list of rescues and shelters for another forum. If any of you run a rescue, shelter or rehoming service and you would like to be added, please PM me with:

    Rescue name
    Location
    What sort of animals you take in/rehome
    Contact details
    Anything else you think is relevant

    Peace
    Akai-Chan

    A rescue is run by someone who takes in animals to rehome to loving homes.

    A sanctuary is run by someone who takes in animals and who doesn't rehome any.

    I think ULLAH runs a sanc and not a rescue ;)

    What would you be called if you only rehomed the odd few to people you personally know rather than an active rescue but did take them in if asked ?

    Pretty much what I do ;) You'd probably be referred to as a rescue, even if you only rehome to certain people :)

    I am not sure if you are only talking about small animals here, but the terms'rescue' and 'sanctuary' do not necessarily mean anything but the name was chosen. Many good people rescue animals, and rehab them then sell them. Many rescues and shelters, never re-home. It is all a matter of what people decide to call themselves so please check what the company or facility really does :)
