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!

As sad as we are to post this, my wife and I are looking to rehome our beloved 5 year old Bengal (F4) Ollie. We are both new medical professionals that cannot give him the care and attention Bengal’s need. We have had him since he was an 8 week old kitten. He has a very easy temperament and is affectionate and nice to strangers. He has shown some anxiety by licking his back and has lost some fur. We recently moved here from NYC into another small apartment and with all the recent stress his anxiety appears worse. With our busy schedule and tight quarters, we conclude it is not fair to Ollie. We think he would do better in a larger place and perhaps be the only pet or be with another very calm, non bossy pet. We are anxious to have this happen fairly quickly. He is a wonderful, stunning pet. He just needs a calm, quiet home and with a family who has time to give him the time and TLC we can no longer provide

Please contact Susan at if you would like to meet Ollie!

Meet Jazz. He’s 3 years old and he’s full of personality. Behind his sass, eyerolls, and good looks lies a cat full of cuddles and lots of love. Jazz can be incredibly independent and can be easily amused by his toys or just staring out the window. But he’s also still very young and full of energy so he loves to play and likes having the option of going outside to explore. Jazz is full of character, he has his sassy side and isn’t afraid to let you know if he doesn’t feel like getting attention. He needs an experienced cat owner and a home that provides the option for him to go outside. I move around too much and I can tell it’s getting harder and harder for him each time. Jazz would love to find a place to finally call home!

To learn more about Jazz, please contact Olivia at 503-679-0237.

Blaire is a 3 year old ginger queen.  Judging by her short tail, I think she may be mixed with Bobtail or Manx. This kitty is definitely a unique blend of sweet and sassy.  Blaire’s favorite thing is attention.  She would love a home where she is the center of attention getting lots of chances to play and snuggle with you.  She will sometimes follow me around the apartment and will usually greet me at the door with demands for belly rubs. Yes, this is a cat who greets her human at the door and likes her belly being rubbed. You can rub her belly all you want and she won’t trap you with a bite. She will sometimes bring you in for some attack-licking. Blaire might love a household with multiple people to shower her with attention but she could also do fine with a single person to get attached to. She does get territorial around other cats and dogs so she should be an only pet – I think it’s because she’s afraid they might steal some of her attention. She is also declawed in the front (from a previous owner) so she should be an indoor-only cat. I am sad to have to let her go but have to move across the country and think she would be much happier curled up on your sofa than stuffed in a carrier on a road-trip.

Hi! Hello! My name is Kenny, but you might as well call me Jumping Jack Flash because I am a 9 month old bouncy bundle of fun! At about 15lbs, I am an energetic Min Pin mix with a big heart who is excited and happy to meet all that come my way, including my human pals, dogs, and those kitties too. Being a young lad, I am still learning all about the world, but boy am I eager to do so and I am looking for someone to teach me all about it! PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION. With a little bit of the basics, I could be the best hiking companion and am so ready to venture out and explore Oregon. A bundle of energy that is rearing to go, I can’t wait to share my adventures with someone who can snuggle with me next to the campfire at the end of the night! And after some of those yummy S’mores of course! Are you looking for a small pal to join you on your journeys? Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300.

Who is sweet, salty, and a little bit nutty?! It’s me, Toffee! I am a 2 year old adorable Doxie mix weighing in at 16 lbs. I am very fun and confident gal ready to explore all over this city and state, as we go hiking in all your favorite places. I enjoy romping around with my puppy pals and wouldn’t mind having another confident doggy friend in the home who likes to play like me, though dog parks would be just a little too overwhelming for me. I’m a little too interested in kitties though, so none in my home please.  I can be a little shy when meeting new people, but after a little time and a few treats, I really open up to be my playful self! Because I can be a bit sensitive, I would need to be in an adult only home that was owned by my adopters.  Full of sugar and spice and everything nice, I am a spunky, cute gal ready for your affection and to begin our adventure together! So fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

I am currently in a foster home on crate rest while I receive treatment for heartworm. Though that sounds scary, I tested negative before I came to Pixie, which means they caught it early and quick enough to get me into treatment right away. I am on the road to recovery and feeling great, though I will need to continue the crate rest for a little while, possibly even during my trial adoption period, and Pixie will be covering the costs of the treatment.

Hi! My name is Louis, but everyone just calls me Louie. I am a cute and quirky 2 year old chihuahua mix weighing in at just around 7lbs. You see, I am a little bit of shy guy with my human pals, but a pretty confident guy with my doggy friends.  But a few moments with me and you can see that I am playful guy with puppy like charm who is eager to bond! As you can tell in the video below,  I am ready to have fun and play with my favorite toys out in the yard!  Especially those tiny cat toys that are perfect for my size. I need someone who has patience and who can provide me with some confidence building training to help me be the happiest little guy I can be! Which I just happen to be a very food motivated and I just love learning. All that add up to me being a perfect candidate for some fun training tricks. Because I can be a little shy at first, I would need to be in a low traffic owned adult only home with another confident doggy pal (a dog savvy kitty would be just fine too).  I just know I will blossom into this spunky and confident guy in no time! 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! My name is Sassy and I am a 6 year old Chihuahua mix hailing all the way from Texas. My name doesn’t quite suit me as I am a sweet, mellower gal who loves just about everyone! And you will definitely hear no sass from me if you tell me we are going on walk. In fact, I love going for walks so much that my foster mom said I could go for miles! I would be a great little hiking companion as we travel to the forest or even the beach. But after a nice long day of activity, I like to come home and plop in my favorite bed for a nice little snooze. I am very social gal with my doggy pals and love to be near them, and will even occasionally snuggle up to them during nap time. Those kitties are ok too! I will seek out attention from my human pals as well and enjoy a nice pet session or belly rub. Active, snugly, social, and just so darn cute! What more could you ask for? Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $300.

Hello! My name is Jasper and I am a super cute 2-year-old Chihuahua/Terrier mix weighing in at 12lbs.  A few minutes with me and you can instantly see that I am a pup who is eager to bond and cuddle on your lap!  Once I open up, I am fun and happy little guy who enjoys hanging out with my dog pals and human friends over 12. Did I mention I like cuddling on your lap? Because that is my all time favorite thing to do! When I am not romping around with my doggy pals and playing with my favorite toys that is. I enjoy a nice little walk around the block every now and again, but really have a blast running around in a nice big yard. In fact, downtown city sounds can be a little scary and I would need to be in a owned home preferably on a quieter street with no cats. My confidence really shines when I am with another pup though, so I would really enjoy hanging with my new furry sibling around the yard. It is such a blast! And then it’s right back guessed it…snuggly on your lap watching our favorite Netflix shows. Cute and cuddly? I am the perfect combination. Fill out an application for me today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, neutered, microchipped with an adoption fee of $300. Interested in fostering me? Email today!
