Welcome to the Pixie Project! We are a non-profit animal adoption center and rescue located in the heart of Portland. We are here to make animal adoption and rescue a fun, family friendly and positive experience. The small but dedicated staff here at the Pixie Project are committed to the art of match making between pet and person and take a hands on personal approach to each and every adoption.

We are so committed to helping those great homes in search of the perfect rescue dog that many times our available animals don’t even make it up on the website because as soon as they come in we know just who would love them!

We ask that all those looking for animals honor the process and the that it might take a bit of time to find that perfect animal but it’s well worth it.

PLEASE DON’T BE DISCOURAGED if you don’t see a dog or cat that fits what you hope to find. Just come on down and fill out an application and talk with us today!

I can be a little shy off the bat, but once I come out of my shell I am so goofy, dancy, playful and wonderful you are sure to fall in looove. I am most definitely The Guy you have been waiting for. I imagine you are pretty lovable yourself… but just to be sure, why don’t we meet?? I come microchipped, neutered, current on all vaccines and my adoption fee is $250. Don’t forget to fill out an app at first!

Hello! I’m Jackson, a dashing 5 year old Border Collie/Terrier mix.  Do you like my pic? I think it really brings out the sweetness and depth of my warm brown eyes and shows off my lustrous black coat pretty well. But don’t take my word for it! Come see me in person and find out if the real thing compares! (Spoiler Alert: it does!) Also, in real life I can show you all my great people skills and we can even go for a trot around the neighborhood if you like. I come microchipped, neutered, current on all vaccines and my adoption fee is $250. Let’s do this! Just fill out an app at so we can set it up!

Well hello there! I’m Rhett, a 3 year old 7 lb Poodle mix! Have you  ever met a Rhett before? If you have, right on! But to many this may seem like an unusual name. Since I reached the ripe age of three, I figured I was old enough to do a little research on this interesting name of mine. Turns out, it is of Latin origin and it means “speaker”. I think this suits me wonderfully! Not because I’m a big barker or anything like that, but I do “speak” with my expressive eyes and my sweet, affectionate and playful demeanor “speaks” volumes about my character ;) I am also terrifically soft, and do pretty well with dogs and cats and kids. I come microchipped, neutered, current on all vaccines and my adoption fee is $250. Fill out an application at to arrange to meet me, can’t wait!

Hiii, I’m Buddy, the most adorable 5 year old Chihuahua! Annnd while we are on the subject of Buddies… I am ready to be yours! I am a bit of a shy guy at first because I worry maybe you’ll think my big ears are silly or something and that makes me blush, but once I warm up I am the most loyal and lovable lap companion :) I am best without small children as I am pretty small myself! I come neutered, microchipped, current on all vaccines and my adoption fee is $250. Just fill out an application at so we can set up a meet– I can’t wait!
