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!

A little bit sassy, a lot a bit sweet! Hi everyone! My name is Lil Bit and I am a cutie patootie 3 year old Min Pin mix weighing in at 13lbs. I have a lot of love to give and though I can be just a tiny bit shy at first, I quickly open up and give you the cutest full body wag you have ever seen! Though I will play with toys occasionally, I am more of a cuddle gal myself and really enjoy sitting on your lap while getting lots of chest rubs. I have met other doggy pals and do have play group here at Pixie, but I would prefer an older mellow pup or being the star of your show! I have lived with a kitty previously, so a dog savvy cat would be just fine by me. I also enjoy my daily walks with my human pals over 15. And at the end of the day? Well, it’s back to my favorite activity-snuggling! So if walks around the block and relaxing while watching some Netflix is your thing too, then fill out an application today, so we can meet. No one can resist a Little Bit of me. They end up wanting the whole thing! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Creed-1

Left jab…right jab…UPPERCUT!!! Oh hey. Creed here, just practicing my boxing moves! I am a 1.5 year old, 60lb boxer mix after all and I need to stay in shape for the next round! I am a friendly and social guy who enjoys to romp around with my doggy friends and I am fantastic with kids of all ages! I can sometimes be a little timid in groups of dogs, but one on one play time is perfect and I would really benefit having another pup sibling. I am a young kid after all and need a strong coach to show me how its all done. Just like Rocky Balboa trained Apollo Creed! I am a smart guy and already know some of the basic commands, and even potty and crate trained! But I am always down to learn some more. I love playing with my toys, I really adore going for walks, and best of all? I really just enjoy being your snuggle buddy. Plus, isn’t my cute face just a total KNOCKOUT?! Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350 .

“Romeo, Romeo, where art thou, Romeo?” Here I am! The name is Romeo and I am the cute 1 year old terrier that makes all the ladies swoon. I mean just look at that face! At 10lbs, I may seem small, but I have a big heart and big energy and I am just ready to play! I really enjoy playing with my doggy pals the most, but a dog savvy kitty would be just fine too. Being a terrier, I am very smart and food motivated, which pairs well for my training. I am still getting the hang of the basics as OBEDIENCE CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I am a spunky guy who is ready to go on my next adventure with my human pals over 10. In fact, I would be a great hiking pal and even those trips to the beach would be so much fun! Playful, funny, and downright adorable, no Juliets can resist my puppy like charm. So fill out an application today and we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello everyone! My name is Callie and I am an adorable 2 year old big earred gal who is super snuggly. But I am a little shy at first and having a hard time in the busy shelter life. So that is why I am asking for a nice quiet foster home to get some rest and relaxation, and allow some time to really come out of my shell. For right now, I am looking for an adult only home with either no pets or a mellow dog or cat would be great! What do you say? Can I have a nice spa day at your place? Up for adoption or foster, fill out an application today, so we can meet! Email info@pixieproject.org for more details.

Look at that! Even my favorite toys are bigger than me-ha! But nothing is quite bigger than my heart. Hi everyone. My name is Tiny and I am a 9 month Chihuahua weighing in at only 5.5lbs. As you can see, I am huge fan of my toys. Especially those squeaker ones. When I am not playing fetch, I love my snuggle time with my human friends over 10. I am still getting used to city life and can be a little apprehensive around the downtown commotion, but with a little encouragement I quickly shake it off and it is back to our walk! I have lived with a bunch of other dogs in the past and have a few play buddies here at Pixie, so another pup in the home would be oh so fun. Those dog savvy kitties can join the party too! I also really enjoy those yummy treats which helps with my basic training. Playful, fun, and downright hilarious, it is hard to resist my adorable face. So fill out an application today and we can set up a meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hola! Me llamo Pablo and I am a 3 year old Chihuahua/Terrier mix looking for my bandito of doggy friends to go on our next adventure together! Being from the South, this big city is all new to me, but I love being outside and with a some leash training, I could get used to daily walks. Especially with my doggy sidekicks by my side! Though I can be a bit shy at first with new people, with a few treats and a few minutes, I will be on your lap eagerly awaiting your pets and affection. But my favorite part of the day and what I enjoy the most is hanging around my dog pals! It really gives me the boost of confidence that I need. I tend to stay clear of the foster’s cat, so a kitty in the home would be just fine too. Since I can be a little shy, I would do best in low traffic adult only home owned by my adopters. I am blossom just ready to bloom with a new band of furry friends at my side and the comfort of your nice warm lap at the end of an active day. Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300.

Hello hello! How do you do? My name is Dunbar and I am just the pup for you! At 3 years old and 60lbs, I am a cattledog/pit mix whose love knows no bounds. I am a very very clever girl whose tricks and good manners will make you head whirl. Because I am such a delight, I know all the basics and I do them just right! I really enjoy my daily walks, and want to greet everyone as we make our way around the blocks. Kids over 12 would be just fine, full of treats and pets would be even more divine! My favorite toy would have to be, a jolly ball almost as big as me! After a good ten minutes of chasing fun, ball time is over and I am all done. Then it’s back to cuddling and loafing around, and winning the all time “best dog” crown. I like to play with my doggies pals too and an older male pup to keep me company should join my crew! Overall I am good at matching other doggies playstyles, and when we play, it’s all around smiles. No kitties in my home please! I do have a very under control autoimmune disease, so ask the Pixie girls for more details please! I like to be your sidekick and follow you around the home. I would also love an owned home with a yard to roam. Playful, fun, and full of heart, fill out an application to give this a start! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Vroom Vroom!! Get your engines started and get ready to go-with me as your co-driver of course. My name is Hemi and I am an adorable 5 year old Chihuahua weighing in at 9lbs. You see, I am from Texas where we just love our NASCAR.  After a slight mishap on the racetrack, Pixie took me in and got me all fixed up, and now I am feeling good! I still have just the same amount of horsepower as before, but I do now have some incontinence issues that require me to wear a little doggy diaper. But there is only one requirement- it has to match our driving uniforms of course! I still love to wrestle with my smaller doggy friends like never before! I even don’t mind being around those kitties. Since I can be a little shy with new people, I would need to be in an owned home with no kids. Though I can be a bit slow to warm up, with a few yummy hotdogs and some patience, I quickly become your new lap snuggling partner! And then it’s back to winning the race and your heart! So strap in and fill out an application today and we can get the wheels turning, and set us off on another adventure. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $250.
