Facts about Chunkster

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 7370080-A045898
  • Hair: Unknown

Chunkster is a typical kitty, playful, inquisitive, and easygoing. He has an active personality, loves to play with his fostermates, and gets along well with the other kitties in his foster home. He loves water, so you'll have a buddy in the bathroom while you get ready for work. He can be a lapcat when he wants to be, and is talkative at times. He's outgoing, friendly, and mischievous. Adopting a young adult is a 10-20 year commitment, is beneficial because their personalities are already developed, and will provide many years of love, devotion, entertainment, and companionship. Chunkster's ideal humans are those who crave the company of a devoted feline companion, and will happily include him in their daily activities. He'll do best in a quiet 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. Chunkster is an orange tabby and white DSH male with white paws and white spots on his nose. He 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 Chunkster's foster mom at if you would like to meet him, or call (408) 427-2949 (voicemail) for more information about adopting him; 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.

Kittens.................................$125 (under 18 months)
