The Pixie Project is a non-profit animal adoption center and rescue located in the heart of Portland, Oregon.

At Pixie, we make animal adoption and rescue a fun, family friendly, and positive experience. Our dedicated staff focuses on finding life-long matches between pet and adopter and takes a hands-on, personal approach to each and every adoption.

Pixie is committed to keeping pets healthy, happy, and in their homes for life. Our on-site clinic offers low-income and homeless pet owners access to vital veterinary care and low-cost spay/neuter surgeries, keeping pets out of shelters and saving lives.

Our philosophy at Pixie is simple and unique: find the perfect pet for each person or family. At Pixie we’re not about getting animals out the door, we’re about getting pets into lifetime homes. Sometimes the “right” pet is waiting for you, and other times you may have to search for a while before your canine or feline soul-mate arrives. We promise, it will be worth the wait!

I am Pinto! Like the beautiful Pinto horse, I’m a striking kitty with black and white markings and a very loving personality. I’m a very mellow 9-year-old lady cat who enjoys attention and is very serious about nap time. I will probably continue to blossom and show my true personality in a quieter home. I’m currently living peacefully in the Pixie cattery and am tolerant of other cats and children, but my ideal home would probably be either with older kids or an adult-only, single cat family or person. The doctor says I need a dental but the nice folks at Pixie have me scheduled to get that done, and other than that, I’m a very healthy and hearty girl. All I need now is a loving person to meet me and fall in love! With the cold weather rolling in, you’ll need a warm, fuzzy, snuggly girl like me in your life. Let’s make new memories together! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Are you a Duck fan? You will be when you meet me! My name is Duck, but I’m no quack. I’m a silly and sweet chubby 6-year-old lady cat that would love to be a part of your family! I came from a family with young children and I am extremely tolerant of handling as well as other cats. I seem very interested and friendly towards dogs as well — I’m friendly towards just about anyone I meet! I am currently residing in the Pixie cattery and am generally the first to come up and greet anyone who walks in the door. If you start petting me and then have to pause, I will give you a cute little “mew” and ask for more! Although I’m a smidge overweight, I’m in excellent health and am an overall very low-maintenance kitty. I do think I’d be happiest in a busy household with lots of activity and attention — I don’t have much of an independent side! Are you looking for a fabulous furry family member to help you cheer on the squad? I’m ready to be part of your team! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

My name is Nermal, and I am a darling blue/gray kitty with sparkling green eyes. I am about 5 years old and am very, very sweet. I got my name from the Garfield comics, since I’m a lot like the cute little gray kitten who is just so friendly! Although I am still pretty new to the shelter and I may be a little bashful at first, I don’t have a mean bone in my body and once someone starts petting me, I quickly relax and start purring. I have very soft, thick fur like a typical Russian Blue kitty, and I get along great with other cats. I would be a wonderful companion for another young kitty like myself and would do well with a family or with a single person — and anything in between! I’m very playful and adventurous, but probably don’t have much interest in going outside. I’d be a great apartment kitty and am very low-maintenance, so I think I’d be a purr-fect match just about anywhere! Are you missing a cat like me in your life? Come down to Pixie to meet me today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Why hello there! My name is Delilah and I am a 3 year old Chihuahua mix weighing in at 9lbs. Though I may be small, I have this wonderful confidence about me as I strut my stuff down the busy streets in Portland. In fact, my favorite part of the day is when I can share a nice long walk with my favorite human pals over 12. I can just imagine strolling through Forest Park, getting all the sniffs in and exploring new places! I am a very affectionate gal and after a long day of activity, I enjoy curling up into your lap as we watch some TV. I have some mellow doggy pals that I love hanging around here at Pixie, so another pup in the home would be just fine by me! Those kitties too. And did you know that someone famous even wrote a song about how pretty I am? That’s right, “Hey There Delilah” was all about yours truly! So grab your hiking bag and some of those catchy tunes, and let’s head out on our next adventure! Fill out an application today. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

You may need this cat in your home! Miss Kitty is a rescue Norwegian Forest Cat mix who bonds mightily with her person. I have found her to be warm, with lots of fur. She is very affectionate and likes to play in the early am. After the play comes the feeding (early am), at which time I clean her box. She has perfect litter box habits and is healthy and spayed. She is sensitive to loud and deep voices. Unfortunately, I have become unable to provide her care for much longer and need to find a new forever home for her.

Stats: Miss Kitty is between 10 & 11 years old; weighs 10 pounds. Contact Margaret, 503-288-6523.

Why hello! My name is Bentley but most people just call me Benny. Might of heard of a little song made about me called Benny and the Jets. It talks all about this rock band I am in. I just happen to be lead vocals. I am a hound after all! At 3 months young and 28 lbs, I am in the learning phase of life, getting to know everything and everyone. I am a quick learner, but do require a lot of time and patience to train me to be the best grown up pup I can be! PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION. I already even know sit, am getting the hang of this potty training thing already, and just starting to get “shake”. My dog trainer fosters say I am a lot of work, but clicker training is really fun for me and I am so food motivated that it really helps learn more skills. Being a pup, of course I am active and love to run around the yard, play fetch, and I could play all day with those Kong Wobblers! Because I am going through an important learning phase, I need all the focus to be on me for a little while, so I need to be with no kids or cats for a little bit.  Being a hound mix, I would really enjoy lots of space and would need to be in an owned home. But I do love to play with my puppy pals, so another confident pup who can tolerate my antics would be just fine. They could even join my band. Eyeliner is required! Ha! At the end of the day, I do really enjoy snuggling by your side.  Wonderful, quirky, hilarious, energetic, smart and super adorable, I am just looking for my new band mates who can rock out with me. Will it be you? Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello friends! My name is Charlie Brown and I am a 2-year-old terrier mix weighing in at 12lbs!  Why the name Charlie Brown you ask? Well, he and I share some things in common. You see, I may be small, but I have a big heart! In fact, I am a guy who is ready to bond with my human pals over 12. I crave human attention the most, but have some fun puppy pals that I play with here at Pixie! No kitties in my home please! I am very inquisitive and eager to sniff out an adventure out in the open world. With a little bit of training, I would be an excellent walker whether it was around the neighborhood or hiking in the forest!  When I am not sniffing out new places, I thoroughly enjoy playing with my squeaker toys. Still working on the fetch part, but I am learning fast! I really do LOVE being around my people. I am officially ready to finally kick that football and win the day-and you! So fill out an application for me today! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Roe is an extremely petite sassy tortie girl that has just finished raising her six kittens. Roe is a shy kitty looking for a family willing to give her lots of patience and love as she learns to trust her human housemates. Working with her foster mom Roe has quickly decided that she loves ear scratches and lots of attention. Roe only likes to be pet and held on her own terms- usually when you are sitting quietly with her on the floor however she is learning to relax a little bit more every day. Although Roe is extremely skittish she does show strong potential of becoming an amazing cat companion in a quieter home- she is super motivated by food and human contact. She is friendly with other cats and has a fun quirky personality. Roe will seek you out when she wants attention, is curious, precocious and talkative. Roe needs a family that has a strong desire to adopt a special cat and will need patience to fully integrate her into their home. The rewards of winning the trust of a kitty like Roe are amazing. Please contact Pixie Project at or call 503-542-3433 if you are interested in meeting her!
