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!

Ready to meet your match? Visit our adoptions page to view cats and dogs ready for a new home!

Hi everyone! My name is Lennon and I have been searching across the universe to find my forever home! I am an outgoing, energetic 1 year old black lab mix, weighing in at 43lbs. I am very social and enjoy everyone I meet, watching them all come together–over me! I love being in the great outdoors and going for my daily walks with Pixie staff and volunteers.  I would really enjoy being your adventure pup as we go hiking and camping all across the state. As much as I would love to do this eight days a week, I would need some rest and would snuggle up next to you near the campfire or on the couch as we watch some of our favorite movies like Yellow Submarine. I am a very playful guy with all my friends-humans of all ages, other pups, and those kitties too! We have such a blast that we just twist and shout the night away! After a good night’s rest, here come’s the sun and we are ready to start a fun and exciting day all over again! I am just a lovable, fun, and active guy wanting to give someone all my loving. Will it be you? Don’t let me down. I want you–to fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

maya-stroller maya-3Hello world, I’m Maya! I am a 11 month old, 7lb Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix with a big bundle of energy, love and puppy humor! I enjoy playing with everyone I meet, especially with my favorite toys. like my squirrel. I put on quite a show doing laps, darting,  and circling! After a long day a play and excitement, I enjoy snuggling up on the couch. I must be under the blankets though, as it is so chilly during this time of year! I am a very quick learner, especially when there are treats involved. My foster parents  even say I am now potty trained, crate trained, and enjoy taking walks. I have attended a puppy manners class, and I continue to work on sit, stay, and bed. Since I love to work my brain, I would just love to learn some new tricks with you, as PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I am good with kids, sometimes so much that I smother them in puppy kisses! Same for cats and other pups too! If you are looking for unconditional love and a playful mate who can entertain, then I’m your gal! Fill out an application today and we can meet! I come to you spayed, micro-chipped, and vaccinated with an adoption fee of $300.

benjamin-1 img_2282 img_2275Hello! My name is Benjamin and I am as cute as a button 4 year old, 12lb Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix! I am very affectionate and cuddly guy looking for that special person to snuggle up with and watch some Netflix. I am a pup that is ready to bond and even though I can be shy at first, with a little time and lots of treats, I will open up and become your new best friend! My foster mom says I do great with the resident cat and that my favorite thing, besides snuggly on the couch watching movies, is to sleep in the hammock in the back yard. Since I am more of a couch potato sort of guy, I would do best in a low traffic home with no kids. While meeting other dogs, I can be somewhat shy at first, but wouldn’t mind having another companion around! So fill out an application, grab the popcorn and the blankets, and let our movie snugglefest begin! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

So fill out an application today and then we can meet and play! I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Boo! Did I scare you? My name is Boo and I’m anything but scary, though I’d be the purrfect addition to your Halloween holiday! I’m just a 6-month-old kitten boy with lots of spunk and a big personality. I’m very confident and playful, and I love to be snuggled. I’m SO confident, in fact, that I can be a little overwhelming to other cats. I am great around dogs, however, and just LOVE people! Are you looking for a single kitten buddy to liven up your life? Come by the Pixie Project to meet me! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for a fee of $100.
