Established in October 2010, New Start Cat Rescue is a small, independent, not-for-profit organisation based in Gloucester and the surrounding areas. The charity is run by a growing team of volunteers who are all dedicated to the welfare of cats... no-one within the charity is paid.
Our main aim is to rescue unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens, domestic and feral, and where possible find them suitable forever homes. We also encourage responsible cat ownership including spaying/neutering and vaccinating.
Our main centre, based in Malswick, supports Gloucestershire and the surrounding area. We also have a branch in Usk with covers South Wales.
Since we officially launched our charity, we have re-homed 100's of cats and kittens. On average we home 30 cats per month, with our best ever month being 56. We are already on track to smash that record in January 2014!
We also have our very own charity shop in the heart of Newent, which was opened by Radio Gloucestershire's Kate Justice.
