Our Mission

We are a foster-based rescue group dedicated to finding furever 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 any problems that may occur following an adoption.

Adoption Policy

Hidden Treasures will be having ADOPTION EVENTS on Saturday, January 5 from 11-3 pm at Pet Supplies Plus, 2480 Albany Avenue in West Hartford, AND on Sunday, January 6 from 11-3 pm at Pet Supplies Plus, 471 Boston Post Road in Orange. Please stop by to meet our available kitties!

Anyone who is interested in adoption may send us an e-mail and request an application. We will process all applications that are received, and we will make a decision based on the applicant that is most suitable for any given pet-we do not work on a first-come-first-served basis. 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 a 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.

We also offer a "virtual shelter" service. If you have a feline that needs a new home, please send us an e-mail, and we can post them on our website and screen applicants to find an appropriate placement. We require three clear photos of each cat (including one frontal view of the face, and one of the entire body and head), any available vet records, and a description of each cat, including breed, sex, age, an explanation of any medical and/or behavior problems, reason for re-homing, and compatibility with other animals and children.

We would like to heartily thank PET SUPPLIES PLUS for kindly allowing our kitties to stay at the stores in West Hartford, Wethersfield, Orange, and Groton. 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!!

Do you need to find a loving home for your pet?

No-kill shelters do wonderful work, but as a result, are often inundated with pet surrenders. In the unfortunate scenario that you have to find a new home for your pet, please read through the rehoming solution and articles on this page before contacting the shelter.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.
