Cats and dogs aren't the only animals who end up in rescues; hamsters and other small furries also find themselves in need of a new home. Vectis takes in occasional rescue hamsters and where possible rehabilitates and rehomes them. Hamsters stay as permanent 'Sanctuary Residents' if no new home is found or if there are health/temperament problems that make them unsuitable for rehoming. Vectis doesn't breed from these rescue hamsters. St Francis Animal Welfare and Crittery are local animal rescues that accept small furries.
