FOSMAS was formed in 2002 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to increasing adoptions at our local shelters.
FOSMAS is an animal welfare organization dedicated to providing care and comfort to the animals at local animal shelters. Our primary objectives are to increase adoptions at our local shelters, lower the euthanasia rate, provide foster and emergency medical care to animals-in-need, and to promote respect for companion animals through our education and outreach programs. FOSMAS is an IRS-registered, publicly-supported 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

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.
