Don't worry. Your house hasn't been burglarized. It's just Bentley. OK, so who taught him this trick? He can open doors that have the lever-type handles! Whether they open out or open in (yep, he can even pull the door BACK once he has the lever down!), no door is safe from his curiosity. He EVEN opened the door of our Petco-Gilroy Adoption Center, and had a field day with three of his feline buddies cruising the store overnight. This proves how smart he is. Or maybe it's mischievous instead. As he grew-up and got taller, Bentley figured-out how to open these doors because he's so curious about what's on the other side. Then once inside, it's, "Harrumph, nothing in here I like," and off he goes to his next door. So better invest in some bungie cords to keep your doors closed if you're the person lucky enough to take this incredibly fun kitty home. Bentley's a typical kitty, very playful, inquisitive, and happy-go-lucky. He has a very sweet and mellow personality that will just melt your heart, and he gets along well with the other kitties in his foster home. He's the best of both worlds, because he can be very loving one minute, then off to entertain himself the next. He's independent and smart enough to find things to do on his own, but he often can be found racing the Indianapolis 500 with his fostermates as they tear around the house like banshees, or engage in a quick game of indoor hockey with a bottlecap. After an afternoon of fun and adventure, Bentley settles into his favorite bed for a lllooonnnggg catnap, often on his back with all four legs in the air, and twisted into a half-moon pose that makes his foster mom say, "Ouch, how can he sleep like that???" With all his fun antics and endearing personality, he'll give you miles of smiles throughout his lifetime. Adopting a young adult is a 10-20 year commitment, is beneficial because their personality is already developed, and will provide many years of love, devotion, entertainment, and companionship. Bentley's ideal human companions are those who crave the fun, energy, joy, and inquisitiveness of a young adult kitty, and will happily include him in their daily activities. He'll do best in an active home with another pet (hopefully with one of his fostermates) to keep him company. With a loving family, he'll be a wonderful and constant companion for many years. Born in March 2012, Bentley is a black and white tuxedo DSH male, is neutered, fully vaccinated (FVRCP and rabies), tested negative for FeLV, dewormed, deflead, and microchipped for identification. He uses the litterbox and scratching post, and must be indoors-only. Please contact Bentley's foster mom at or call   (408) 427-2949 (voicemail) for more information about adoption; messages returned within 24 hours.

About Friends of San Martin Animal Shelter

About Our Rescue Group...

FOSMAS is a 100% volunteer-run non-profit that provides rescue and foster care for Santa Clara County Animal Shelter cats and dogs.

Our primary goal is to lower the euthanasia rate at the shelter, reduce the overpopulation of homeless cats, and provide public outreach services to help the animals and staff at the Santa Clara County Animal Shelter in San Martin, CA. We can accomplish this goal by increasing adoptions and expanding our volunteer program. We provide homes, medical and comfort care to all animals in foster care until adopted.

FOSMAS provide specialty services for care of pre-wean kittens, we train fosters in animal care and provide foster homes for County cats & dogs. FOSMAS provides all necessary food, supplies, and medical treatments for the pets it retrieves from the Santa Clara County Animal Shelter, places them in adoption centers and holds pet fairs to find forever homes for the pets in our foster system.

We partner with local pet stores, such as Petco and PetSmart and local area businesses to run pet adoption fairs and events to showcase our pets available for adoption and educate the public about our rescue group and shelter. We also maintain our website and Pet Site listings to electronically showcase adoptable pets

Come Meet Our Pets...

We host a multitude of pet fairs monthly. Please visit our Facebook page for updated times and locations for our pet fairs.

FOSMAS volunteers also foster animals in private homes. Please contact or 669.228.4440 (voicemail) for more information about home visits or to make an appointment to see a particular kitty.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process includes an adoption application, interview, and interaction with the kitty. If everything goes well, we ask for an adoption fee. What the fee goes toward is de-worming, de-fleaing, age-appropriate vaccinations, tested negative for feline leukemia (and FIV if over 6 months old), spay or neuter, and micro-chipping. We require all members of the household to be present for the interaction so we can see how the kitty responds with each person and vice-versa, that there are no allergic reactions, and that all family members are on-board with the adoption and kitty selected. We do this to minimize the risk of the kitty being returned and to make sure there are no allergy issues.
