Milpitas community briefs for the week of Nov. 20

Kitten Match

Time is short to bring a feline into the family through the Humane Society Silicon Valley’s free Kitten Match adoption program. Through Nov. 20, those looking to adopt can fill out a form at to let the Humane Society know what they’re looking for in a kitten.

Once counselors find a match, the Humane Society will offer a video call to answer any general kitten care questions, then schedule a pick-up appointment at the Milpitas Animal Community Center, 901 Ames Ave. Adoption paperwork and payment will be completed online.

All kittens must leave in a secure carrier, and masks are required for pet pick-up.

Open studios online

Silicon Valley Open Studios (SVOS) has launched a virtual art show and fundraising event to benefit Second Harvest of Silicon Valley.

More than 130 Bay Area artists have submitted 600 pieces of art for the event, which continues through Nov. 30. Artists are donated at least 15 percent of sales to Second Harvest.

Artworks are available in many media, including painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, furniture, woodworking, printmaking, mosaics, digital art and jewelry.

The COVID-19 pandemic compelled SVOS to pivot from its traditional format, where art afficionados visit artists’ work spaces. In its place, SVOS developed a platform to showcase their artists’ work while raising money for Second Harvest. The food bank has seen an 80 percent increase in food distribution since the pandemic began.
