Happily Ever After (adopted pets)

Please Make a Donation For Esperanza!

Poor Esperanza came to us in terrible condition on 10/19/16 (bottom photo). She had an upper respiratory infection and both eyes were badly infected. Her fur was matted everywhere, she was skin and bones, and so dehydrated that she could barely walk. After a visit to our veterinary clinic, it was determined that she had severe hyperthyroidism, and her left foreleg had been dislocated at the elbow due to trauma at some point in her past. Her teeth were in a terrible state of decay, and there were many teeth that had broken off, leaving roots and remnants behind in her jaw. UPDATE ON 3/2/17 (top photo): Esperanza's thyroid has been regulated, and she was finally able to undergo dental surgery!! Her decaying teeth and the roots left behind in her jaw have all been extracted, and she is MUCH more comfortable now. She also had a growth removed from her right ear that had been rapidly increasing in size over the past month, and we are awaiting biopsy results, hopeful that it is nothing serious. She has almost doubled her weight since she arrived! UPDATE ON 3/11/17: The growth on Esperanza's ear has been determined to be a mast cell tumor, which usually behaves benignly, but can also be malignant. Her ear will be observed for any recurrence of the tumor. Esperanza was ADOPTED today into a fantastic new home with two younger brothers, who she will be introduced to after she has had several weeks to settle in. YAHOOOO! This little angel has needed to have extensive medical attention. PLEASE HELP US to raise the necessary funds to cover her many veterinary bills.

Please Help Leah Find The Right Home!

Leah and her sister Rachel were rescued as strays by a kind woman in New Britain. She is very playful, affectionate and talkative. She loves butt scratches, and will stick her tail up in the air for more! IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE FOR LEAH???


Hidden Treasures will be having ADOPTION EVENTS on Saturday, May 13 from 11-3 pm at Pet Supplies Plus, 2480 Albany Avenue in West Hartford AND on Sunday, May 14 from 11-3 pm at Pet Supplies Plus, 471 Boston Post Road in Orange. Most of our available kittens will be attending, along with Leah, Rachel, Neytiri, Hennessy, Columbia and some new arrivals! Please stop by and give our kitties some love.

We would like to heartily thank PET SUPPLIES PLUS for kindly allowing our kitties to stay at the Silas Deane, West Hartford, Orange and Manchester stores. The exposure is fantastic for the cats, and the staff members give them lots of extra attention. Pet Supplies Plus has been instrumental in placing many of our homeless cats and kittens over the past twelve years, six of whom were senior cats. Kudos to PET SUPPLIES PLUS!!

Would you like to purchase a T-shirt, sweatshirt, pajamas, tank top, cap, mug, bag, keychain, water bottle, stickers, jewelry or one of many other items sporting our cool new Hidden Treasures logos?

Who We Are

We are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to finding "forever homes" for all of our little hidden treasures. We strive to ensure that all adoptions result in optimal conditions for both the adopted feline and the adoptive owner/family. We will work with adopters to resolve problems that may occur following an adoption.

Adopting a friend

Anyone who is interested in adoption may send us an e-mail and request an application. If the application is approved, we will make an appointment for the applicant to pick up their new family member. All adopters are expected to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee to help defray medical expenses incurred. Shipping animals unaccompanied is unpredictable and very stressful for the animals. Hidden Treasures will NOT ship pets under any circumstances. Adopters will pick up their pets in person and transport them directly to their new home in an appropriate pet carrier. Hard carriers are preferable to soft carriers with zippers. If the pet is being transported by air, adopters are expected to bring the pet on board the plane.

Virtual Shelter Service

We also offer a "virtual shelter" service. If you have a feline(s) that you would like to find new homes for, please send us an e-mail, and we will be glad to list your feline(s) on our website and screen applicants for you. We require three clear photos of your feline(s) (at least one must be a frontal view of your feline's face, and at least one must be of your feline's entire body and head). We also require vaccination, spay/neuter, and test records. We also require a description of your feline(s), including breed, sex, age, an explanation of any medical and/or behavior problems, reason for re-homing, and compatibility with other animals and children.
