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!

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. 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.

Hi!  My name is J.T.T.!  That’s short for Jonathan Taylor Thomcat, “Stray Kitty Heartthrob.” *wink* I guess that’s because I tend to melt hearts with my boyish charm wherever I go!  Let’s see… I am about 4 years old.  I’m up to date on all of my vaccines.  I’m neutered, FeLV and FIV negative, and already microchipped!  I’m looking for a forever home with people who understand cats and will respect my personal space.  I’ll be honest, I’m not a big fan of snuggling, but I am really social and love hanging out with my people.  Oh!  And I love to play!  I love chasing my own tail, chasing my people, chasing flies, chasing lasers… I am not above spazzing out over tiny, barely visible specs of dust floating in the air.  I’m not a big fan of kids, but I would LOVE a young, social cat buddy to play with!!  I’m not equipped for the outdoors either, so indoor homes only please (although I would LOVE to go to a home with a ‘catio!’).  If I sound like the right kitty heartthrob for you, my foster family I would love to meet you!

Email Karen at karanimal84@yahoo.com for an adoption application.  My adoption fee (I’m worth it!) is $100.

Hello! We are looking for a home for our beloved cat Lilo (short for “little love,” not Lindsay Lohan). She is a 3-year-old all back domestic short hair cat who is up to date on all vaccines, is mirco-chipped and spayed. Lilo is very kind, loving, and cuddly but also independent. She loves to play and be pet and purr, but she also enjoys alone time napping in comfortable spot. She is great with children. We had a toddler who is quite rough with her and she has never once hissed at him or been aggressive with him. We’ve never seen her be aggressive with anyone. She likes other cats, but is afraid of dogs. She likes to chase the wand toys, small mouse looking toys, felt balls and the laser pointer.
We are searching for a new family for Lilo as our family is growing and we do not have the time to love her properly. She has been a delight to our family but sadly, she is not a good fit for our (now) toddler, who is far too aggressive with her. Additionally, we live in a small condo and believe she would do much better with more space. An ideal situation would be a family or person who can love her well with attention and time and has a larger condo or home for her to explore. A small yard would be great too. Small adoption fee of $50 (negotiable) and we are happy to provide all of her things. If you would like to meet Lilo please contact Michelle at m.shepherdcombs@gmail.com.

Hi, I’m Triniti! I’m a Cuddle Queen with a Masters in Snuggle. I need a new home where allergies don’t keep me from cuddling my human all night, since that’s what makes me happiest. I get around just great on three legs and am an impressive feather huntress. If I see an empty lap, I’ll usually leap at the opportunity to be affectionate. My ideal home is a quiet place with someone looking to share lots of love and attention. Could it be you?
I like to stay indoors since there are too many dangers outside for a tripod. I’m a petite 8-year-old and in purrrfect health: spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped and perfectly toilet trained. Dogs and other cats might be too much for me, but people are my favorite and I just know my forever person is out there, waiting to meet me!
If you are interested in meeting Triniti, please contact Alexandra alexandrakpolk@gmail.com

Hi, My name is Smokey the cat. I’m a girl about 3-4 years old. I was lost and two years ago found a safe back yard to live in. I have a lovely catio and a nice little shed with a heated bed for winter, it’s very cozy. I would like to live in the big house with the people but they have a mean old lady cat who won’t let me in. I have been very healthy and happy since finding this place. I don’t like winter much, I would prefer to be sitting in the house with the people, on their laps, preferably. But alas, it cannot be. So I wait for summer when I have my choice of chairs to lounge in the sun, and I help the people with gardening and I hunt for mice and gophers to earn my keep. The people made sure I was healthy and make sure I get annual checkups. I love to eat, and sit on laps. When I am very happy I do drool a bit. My people have shared with me that they have to leave their home and go far away, and it isn’t safe for outdoor cats there. So I am looking for a new home with a backyard and maybe a chance to sit on your sofa with you. I have met dogs before, and as long as they don’t chase me, I don’t mind them. I have a cat friend from up the street that visits me on my catio and we lie in the sun together. The people have told me they think I am one of the nicest cats they have ever met.

If you would like to meet Smokey, please contact Sue at sjhofbauer@gmail.com

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. PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! 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.
