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! My name is Chip, but here at Pixie they call me Chippy Chip. A cute little nickname for a cute little me! I am a 3 year old Beagle/Chihuahua mix weighing in at about 15lbs. With my nose to the ground, I am always ready for my mid afternoon adventure walk around the block, as I take in all the sights and smells. The big city is a little too busy for me and I would prefer a quieter neighborhood versus downtown. Though I don’t mind having another chill pup or kitty like myself in the home, you can tell that I am eager to bond with my human friends over 13 the most. Though I can be a tad sensitive, I am very food motivated and with a few tasty treats, you can see that I am eager to meet your acquaintance as I open up and show my true personality! Overall, I am just a super chill and independent guy looking for a quiet owned home to settle down in. Will it be yours? Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300.

Hi everyone! My name is Tangerine! I know, I know-I’m not orange. But I am so uniquely sweet-just like the fruit! At 10 years young, I am a still a very spry and spunky Chocolate Lab who is ready for some adventure! Or snuggles. Either one is just fine by me. I really love meeting new people of all ages and those furry pals too. In fact, I am great with other pups and enjoy being around those kitties too! Since I am still an active gal, I get so excited to go on my daily walks and would be an excellent hiking companion. I really am just a wonderful, social, and well mannered lady ready to settle into my forever home. I am the Tangerine Dream! So fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped with an up to date dental exam for an adoption fee of $300.

Whose bouncy, wiggly, full of kisses and snorts? That’s me, Bob! I am a 3 year old Boston Terrier full of energy and ready to go go go onto the next adventure life has for me! You can always find a smile on my cute face as I am a very happy guy who is eager to meet new people and those other pups too. But what I love more than anything are toys! Fetch, squeaker toys, tug-you name it, I will play it! I could play all day. But at the end of a long active day, I am of course ready to curl up on your lap and snooze the night away! I tend to be a little too interested in those kitties, so none in my home please. But I really love romping around with doggy pals, so I wouldn’t mind another furry companion! Because of my big bounces and wiggles, I need to be with kids over 12. Laughable, affable, silly-all the best adjectives describe me perfectly! So fill out an application today and we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $450.

My name is Marky Mark and I am looking for my new family to be my funky bunch! I am a 4 year old Chihuahua mix weighing in at around 8lbs. I traveled all the way from LA to retire here in the beautiful Pacific North West. I am a very social, outgoing guy who loves meeting all people, dogs and those kitties too. I love to play with my squeaker toys and after a nice play session, I am ready to snuggle in your lap! I do have a genetic disease that affects my back legs so they aren’t quite as strong as they should be. I am getting all fixed up by Pixie and doing fine. I am currently available for foster or adoption! So fill out an application today, so we can meet and get our groove on!

Hello! My name is Bridgette and I am a beautiful 6 year old Chow/Shepherd mix weighing in at 50lbs. I am a very friendly and out going gal who loves being around people. I absolutely adore playing fetch and tug with my favorite squeaker toys! After a little round of play, it is time for my daily hike around the neighborhood. In fact, the Pixie volunteers say that I am so easy and wonderful to walk. When I am done with all the activity, it is back to the house for a nice mellow rest of the day full of pets and snuggles. I just can’t get enough attention! Even from my furry friends too. I don’t mind having another cat in the home and have a few doggy play pals here at Pixie! Dog parks would be a little overwhelming and I would much rather have one on one play time with a chill friend like myself. I am just a very sweet, affectionate, and gentle lady who is ready for toy time and cuddle time! Sound like your ideal day too? Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

I have a 10 year old petite, 6 lb black cat named Jenga.  I adopted her 8 years ago from a no kill shelter in Florida. Unfortunately the dynamics in my home have changed and I live with my girlfriend who has a service dog.  
Jenga and the dog do not get along and Jenga would prefer to be an only animal. She was a sweet, cuddle cat before living with the dog.I’m seeking a loving, quiet forever home for her. I know that if she wasn’t in the environment that she’s in now that she’d be back to her old self; a sweet lap cat who love to purr and loves her people. She is spayed and microchipped and FIV/FELV negative.
Please feel free to email me at back or call/text me at 813-295-1452.

Need to add a little sweetness to your day? Then just add a little tablespoon of me-Honey! I am a 7 year old Black Lab/Rhodesian mix with a big heart. I am a mellow gal who can still be active and go on daily walks, but also really wants nothing more than to be by your side and relax the night away! After a little time with me, you can instantly tell I am a pup that is eager to bond with that special someone. I am still getting used to the bigger city, so a quieter home with kids over 10 in a low traffic area would best! I don’t mind being with other calm dogs like myself, but dog parks would be too overwhelming. No cats in my home please! Overall, I am an affectionate lovebug who likes being around my people, and just taking the days as they come. Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Maybe you’ve heard of Indian Jones or Han Solo? Well they are famous roles played by this handsome man! My name is Harrison Ford and I am a 12 year old Pomeranian weighing in around 10 lbs. Though my days of starring in some of the best action flicks are over & done with, I am still a spunky guy and love going on my afternoon walks. I mean nothing feels better than getting a little wind through my glorious mane! I enjoy venturing out into the world and meeting my adoring fans. Whether it is my human friends of all ages, other puppy pals or those kitties too, I am always about getting in that spotlight! After my adventures outdoors, I am ready to settle in for the night on a nice comfy lap while we watch some of my favorite movies-all starring me of course! I am funny, good looking, and boy, do I have the charm! So fill out an application today and let’s continue my many adventures together!  I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an up to date dental with an adoption fee of $250.
