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!

Badgley is a sweet kitty that loves people, cats and dogs! She is 10 years old but acts like a kitten as she is still very active, but of course loves her cat naps. She will talk to you if you’d like to have a conversation and she’ll cuddle you too (with an occasional love bite 😉 ).  We are looking to rehome her as she was my mother’s cat. We will charge a very nominal adoption fee to make sure she goes to a good home. We’ll also provide you with food, litter, a litter box, a bed and toys. Everyone that meets her loves her and I’m sure you will too!

Kiddo and Hawkshaw (nicknamed Toes – he has 7 toes on one paw and 6 on all the other!) are two sweet, playful kittens available for adoption. Though not from the same litter, the two quickly bonded and are a close pair.  They can be found playing together, napping together, and grooming one another. Kiddo is a very sweet, social and playful kitten. He is engaging and likes to be with people, and will purr contently if you pet him.  Toes is a little more shy than Kiddo (though Kiddo has been a great influence on him, and Toes feel very safe around his friend). Toes is sweet, but a little nervous and it will take him some time to warm up. He loves to be brushed and he loves playing with his mouse toy. This adorable pair will make great furry companions! They are vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed/neutered with an adoption fee of $135 each ($243 for a pair).  They are in foster, so fill out an application online or at the shelter and we will set up a meet and greet!

Hi everyone! My name is Walter and I am a fun, outgoing 1 year old cattle dog mix. With my charming good looks and my silly personality, I am the dog who will always entertain to you, bringing a smile to your face! I am very excited to meet new people of all ages and other pups too. Even cats can join the fun! I have a great medium energy and would be a great exploring partner! Hikes up a mountain or to the nearest swimming hole for a nice cool dip or even just some fetch in the yard, I am always a happy as a clam. Don’t get me wrong, I am not active all of the time. In fact, I love watching movies on the couch with you sipping hot coco just as much! As long as I am with you, then it doesn’t matter what we do.  I am sweet, social, handsome and just the pup you have been looking for! So fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300.

Hi everyone! They call me Little Larry. I guess you can say I’m like a mini cattle dog mix weighing in at only 25 lbs at 11 months old. Don’t let my serious face fool you, I am quite the fun guy and have a great medium energy that keeps me active and cuddly! As a young guy, I am a very quick learner and am already crate trained! I would love to learn more though, as PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I enjoy my daily walks with the Pixie volunteers and already walk really well on leash! I could do without all this rain though-Ha! I enjoy playing with toys and love to play with my puppy pals I have met here. I also enjoy meeting all humans over the age of 10 and even those kitties too! Even though I am little guy, I am full of spunk with a big personality and an even bigger heart just waiting to see where my next adventure will take me. Want to come with?
