Welcome to New Start Cat Rescue

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 which 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 71 in August 2014!


We're looking for donations for our Christmas Crackers Raffle. And yes, it's us who are Crackers!

We will be drawing a winner EVERY DAY from 1st - 24th December. Yes, that's 24 winners.

We'd love to include some local, high quality luxury prizes. There are so many talented, tasty and truly special businesses in the area we can't get round you all.

If you'd like to offer a prize, please get in touch. We will include your name and website on all our advertising.

Thank you so much, from all our cats, kittens and volunteers.




This is Woody, our little blind fluff ball. He was found wondering the streets in Birmingham and was rescued by a good friend of New Starts - Sue

He came in on a Sunday evening in a snotty state, bless him.
His little eyes have a thick white film covering the whole of them. One of his pupils also has a abscess on it.When I saw him for the first time all the worries and memories we went through with Moomin came flooding back.This little man is also a real fighter enjoying his bot bot and lots of cuddles and kisses. He is such a happy chap who finds fun in everything he does. Being unable to see doesn't stop him from being a loveable kitten.The future of his eyes is very much guarded at the moment so it's going to be lots of trips to the vets and fingers and toes crossed. We will keep you all up dated on Woody's progress.

UPDATE! Woody is still poorly, full of a bunged up nose, but he'a fighter. As of last night he was running riot at a volunteer's house, and making his presence known. He still needs lots of care (and love), both of which he is getting with New Start.
If Woody's story had touched a heart string please donate some pennies towards this little fluff ball's fund.
