New Start Cat Rescue

We are a non profit organisation; we believe every cat and kitten deserves a loving home. Although based in Huntley, Gloucestershire on the A40 between Gloucester and Ross on Wye, we cover a wide area in the West of England. This includes Gloucester, the Forest of Dean, Cheltenham, the Cotswolds, Tewkesbury, Ross on Wye, Stroud and Cirencester, reaching as far north as Ledbury and Malvern and a foster network as far south as Swindon.


Our aims are:

  • to rescue and help unwanted cats and kittens of any age
  • to find suitable homes for any cats in our care and encourage responsible cat ownership
  • to check new homes for suitability for a cat and give advice where necessary
  • to promote regular vaccination and worming programs and encourage microchipping of cats
  • to encourage spaying and neutering of all cats and kittens (when old enough)
  • to neuter feral cats and return to their normal colonies where possible
