Pixie will be closed on Tuesday, July 4th for the holiday!

Pixie staff will be caring for our dogs and cats and we’ll be back to normal on Wednesday!

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!

Please sir, may I have some more pets? I am Oliver the orphan, looking for my new family! I am a gorgeous and amicable 2-year-old fluffy boy kitty who was found out in the countryside. I know I had a loving family before, because I’m extremely nice and will quickly come out to say hello to anyone who stops by the Pixie cattery to meet me. I’m really respectful towards other kitties as well, but am a bit on the shyer side when it comes to feline friends, so really confident kitties are a little over-whelming to me — even though I’m bigger than most of the cats I meet! I’m a good sized cat at about 13 pounds, but my fluffy coat makes me look a little larger. I love brushing and keep myself nice and groomed, so I am pretty low-maintenance. My wonderful temperament makes me a good candidate for a home with other animals and kids alike — so what are you waiting for? Won’t you come take me home? I can’t wait to meet you! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Hi there! Decon’s my name and I am an extremely sweet and mellow 11-month-old tabby boy who’s ready to find my furrever home! Even though I’m a young cat, I am very easy-going and spend most of my day lounging around in the coziest spot I can find. I like to find snug spaces that I can squeeze into and leave just my head poking out — ready for chin scratches and head butts! When someone comes in the room, I like to walk over and say hello before settling back down again. I can be pretty playful when I want to be, and I’ll probably open up more and more as I gain confidence in my own home. Right now I live in the Pixie cattery, and it’s pretty cool. I like most of the other cats in the room — I even try to rub up on some of them when they let me! I think I’d do great alongside another friendly kitty, but would also do just fine on my own. Are you looking for a boy like me? Come on down to Pixie and say hello! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

See me razzle. See me dazzle. See me shine! My name is Princess Glitter Sparkle and I am the fairest maiden in the land. At 9 years young and 8 lbs, I am still quite spry and spunky, and ready to go my daily walk to meet my adoring fans. And of course the paparazzi always seem to know what I am doing or where I am going, but I don’t care. I love the attention! In fact, I just love being around my people of all ages and my other furry friends, both dog and cat alike! I would even be a great office dog, as I lay in a sunbeam while receiving admiration by all. I have my silly side too and really enjoying playing with my toys or flipping on my back while making funny faces as I scratch that itch. And those hikes in Forest Park? I seriously can’t get enough and could keep going for miles! After play and a nice walk, it is time to hop in your lap and get some much needed belly rubs and back scratches. Overall, I am hilarious, flirty, adorable and fun! Will you join my royal court? Fill out an application and we can set up a meet!  I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an up to date dental exam and an adoption fee of $300.

So fresh, so clean, so Minty. Well that’s my name and playing is my game! I am super adorable and fun 1.5 year old Shepherd mix weighing in at 45lbs. I am an active gal with a love of walks and would be a great adventure companion as we hike all over Oregon. When I am not enjoying my time in the great outdoors, my second favorite hobby is playing with, you guessed it, TOYS! I have to say that those ones with squeakers are my absolute favorite. As you can see in my pictures, I am total clown who enjoys meeting new people over 10 and those other pups too! No kitties in my home, please. Since I am a young pup with some energy, I do need some of the basics. But I am very food motivated and a quick learner, and I even have “sit” down. Though I am little less cuddly and more into play, I do enjoy a back scratch or two! Goofy, sweet, and always entertaining, my good looks and charm are quick to make your heart melt. I’m like the little chocolate mint you find on your pillow after a long day of vacation fun! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $300.

Hello Hello! My name is Bernard and I am a spunky and super fun Chihuahua mix weighing in at 10lbs. Being around a year old,  I am just a young pup ready to explore, learn some of the basics, and really just have a blast living life! I am energetic little guy zooming around the playroom with my puppy pals, flipping my toys up in the air. I am the definition of a party animal and know how to have a good time with everyone I meet including those kitties and humans over the age of 6. Since I can get a little nervous around high car traffic areas, I may not enjoy the NW 23rd life, but prefer a bit more of a quieter area in town. And let me tell you that there is nothing I love more than play play play!! Toys-check! Ball-check! Tug toy-check! I do need to learn some of the basics, as PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION. But I am very food motivated and catch on very quickly. I am a hilarious little man with a big personality, and an even bigger heart to go with it! Ready to play? 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.

Looking for a playful, beautiful, smart kitty? Taco might be your match. We adopted her 4 months ago from a private party, and this little gal is not settling into our home very well. We have a dog that makes her very anxious. And I believe she would thrive in a pet free home. She’s super smart, she has done some fetching in her time with us. And she loves to play! She could probably easily learn some tricks if someone took a little time with her. She is a little over a year old and has all her paperwork. She’s spayed and comes with a really nice cat carrier, litter box, food and a few toys.  503-810-7493

Hi! My name is Sansa and I am a beautiful 2.5 year old Catahoula Mix weighing in at around 80lbs. And believe me when I say I have a big heart to go along with that big stature! I am a very active pup and enjoying going on hikes, and would be the perfect adventure companion. I also loooove playing with my furry dog friends, so much so that I would need another doggy pal in my new home. I am just a little too interested in those kitties, so none in my home please. I have been great around everyone that I meet, including kids of all ages! Since I am an active gal and the city is a little too busy for me, I would really need to be in a owned home in a more rural setting with some more space to romp around in with my new doggy friend. I am very intelligent and now some of the basics and even used to crate training! Though I come off as serious, I am such a playful and fun loving gal with a lot of love to give, who is ready to explore the state with my new family. Where shall we go to next? Crater Lake? Painted Hills? You decide and I will tag along! So fill out an application today and we can set up a meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.
