Is your house too quiet? Do you need a feline conversationalist? Then look no further than Marki. Once you bring her home, you'll never be in want of someone to talk with. She loves to call her humans from the far corners of the house, then race to them when they reply, and flop down in front of them to get their attention, just in case they missed her vocalizations. What an absolute hoot she is! Marki came to our Shelter as a single prewean kitten, and was placed with a momcat and her litter for some feline attention and interaction. The little consolidated family moved to a foster home where they got a lot of good care and lovin'. The momcat and her last kitten were recently adopted together, so Marki became a single kitten again. Her foster mom put her with the other fosters in the home, and now Marki's personality is really blossoming. She's quite playful, interacts well with her fostermates (although she can be a bit bossy at times), and is really becoming the playful kitten that she wants to be. Her entertainment value is very high, so be prepared for a lot of feline antics to keep you laughing. Adopting a kitten is a 10-20 year commitment, is beneficial because they readily adapt to their new home and family, and will provide many years of love, devotion, entertainment, and companionship. Marki's ideal human companions are those who crave the fun, energy, joy, and inquisitiveness of a kitten, and will happily include her in their daily activities. She'll do best in an active home with another pet (hopefully with one of her fostermates) to keep her company. With a loving family, she'll be a wonderful and constant companion for many years. Born in August 2012, Marki is a black DSH female with ghost tabby markings (she has the classic tabby bullseyes on her sides that you can see in the right light), is dewormed, deflead, fully vaccinated (FVRCP and rabies), tested negative for FeLV, spayed, and microchipped for identification. She uses the litterbox and scratching post, and must be indoors-only. Please contact Marki's foster mom at or call (408) 681-3788 (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.
