New Start started in 2010, with a group of like minded friends all wanting to help unwanted cats and kittens in the Gloucester area. But Jackie, one of the founders, has been in animal welfare for over twenty years. She’s been rehoming Irish kittens and cats for me since 2007, when I first met her. And New Start was partly founded to help Irish rescues and their delicate charges. An absolutely lovely group of people. And a very effective organisation.
