Fostering is one of the most needed and greatly rewarding volunteer experiences.
We would love to hear from you if you have space in your life and home for a cat in need.

“I have always had cats in my life, then six months ago I saw an advert from the Newmoon Rescue asking for fosterers. I am retired so I thought I can do this. Meeting Heidi gave me the confidence that I could make a difference to unloved and abandoned cats. I have never regretted my decision to help. I have met so many kind, caring and passionate people that aks for nothing, just to give their time and love to rehabilitate every cat that comes to The New Moon Rescue."

“Earlier this year, we became cat fosterers with New Moon Rescue. One of the first foster cats who came into our lives was little Tiggy. She had been living as a stray in South London. Local residents had been feeding her but no one knew where she had come from and it became apparent she didn’t have a home to go to. New Moon Rescue stepped in and had her checked to see if she was chipped (sadly she wasn’t).
So ...Tiggy came to us. I collected her on an evening of torrential rain, she was wide eyed and rather bewildered, not sure what was happening. However, she settled with us quite quickly and was keen to show us how friendly and playful she was. Our children loved spending time with her and watching her confidence grow. We soon discovered that as well as playtime Tiggy absolutely LOVES Dreamies and would let us know whenever she fancied some! Tiggy was with us for a few weeks and in that time New Moon Rescue found her a perfect forever home. We were sad to see her go but delighted she has a happy and loving forever home. We didn’t stop there and have enjoyed helping many more cats."

"I have been volunteering for the New Moon for around 18 months and I have happily helped many cats in that time. I have learnt skills in trapping feral cats, fundraising, fostering and even a little bit of admin! Many foster cats and kittens have stayed with me, some for just a week, others a lot longer while they recovered from operations or raised their kittens. It's been a very fulfilling experience and I love how all the team work together to help so many cats."
