Check an electrical components website (Maplin, Radio Spares, Farnell, etc.).  There are plenty of relays.  Choose one appropriate to the voltage you will be using to actuate it.

If you find one and want to post the details here, with a few more details on how you will be using it, someone may able to offer further advice on the suitability.
