Consider becoming a foster carer with New Start!

We are building a network of fosters in Gloucestershire to help us look after pregnant cats and their kittens and adult cats who need some time to adjust to a home environment before they can be rehomed.

The whole family can get involved in care for the cats and kittens, and fosterers get all the benefits of cat companionship without the long term commitment or cost. 

If you can help with this please contact us on: 07510 134805

Roles include:

Foster carers - looking after cats in your own homes and helping them to find a new home
Foster scheme coordinators - providing administrative support to carers in their area, helping them to place their pets in new homes
