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!

Hi everyone! My name is Rusty and I am an energetic happy go lucky 4 year old Min Pin mix weighing in at 18lbs. As my foster says, I just want to crawl right into your heart and soul. And that is a true fact! I love to cuddle with my human pals and of course am always up for some nice belly rubs on my smooth bare chest. I don’t mind being around active dog pals my age, as my puppy like energy might annoy mellower pups. I am very food motivated which helps with my basic training. I am always up for learning more and am already even potty trained! Outside is where I like to be during those nice weather days. Especially to run around in a nice big fenced yard! Because of my big friendly puppy like bounces, I would need to be in a home with kids 12 and older. No kitties in my home please! Attention from my humans is what I love the most and you will see that I may even nose my way into the lime light if another pup happens to be getting more attention. Ha! I am just so ready to be your sidekick! Will you be my superhero? Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Hola! Me llamo Pablo and I am a 3 year old Chihuahua/Terrier mix looking for my bandito of doggy friends to go on our next adventure together! Being from the South, this big city is all new to me, but I love being outside and with a little training, I would really enjoy daily walks. Especially with my doggy sidekicks by my side! Though I can be a bit shy at first with new people, with a few treats and a few minutes, I will be on your lap eagerly awaiting your pets and affection. But my favorite part of the day and what I enjoy the most is hanging around my dog pals! It really gives me the boost of confidence that I need. I tend to stay clear of the foster’s cat, so a kitty in the home would be just fine too. Since I can be a little shy, I would do best in low traffic adult only home owned by my adopters. I am blossom just ready to bloom with a new band of furry friends at my side and the comfort of your nice warm lap at the end of an active day. 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 yummy cheesy midday snack? Well, look no further as I am the most deliciously cute Cheetoh you will ever eat-I mean meet! Ha! At 6 months young, I am a cuddlemuffin who loves being with my human friends of all ages. I am still learning all about the world and am eager to do it, as PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I love playing with my toys with those squeakers being my absolute favorite. And of course I enjoy romping around with my doggy friends too! But then it is back to your lap for snuggles and face kisses galore! I am still getting used to the big city traffic, but a little happy talk and encouragement-plus lots of treats-and I am back to trotting down the sidewalk, grabbing the attention by all as I walk by. Happy, bouncy, and full of wiggles, I am a hilarious and entertaining guy full of-you guessed it- cheese! Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee $300.

Raven is a petite, 12-year-old, de-clawed black beauty with a BIG heart. Raven enjoys perching–in a window, on the top of a chair, on pillows, on her kitty bed, and most of all, on laps.  With her special kitty radar, she knows when her foster mom is heading for her recliner to read or meditate and she’s there in a flash.  Snuggling in bed is also on her list of favorite things.

Raven is a talented talker who gives very specific instructions while her breakfast and supper are being prepared.  She also gives critiques when dogs walk by and is somewhat curious about the whole collar/leash ensemble they wear. Raven warms up to new people quickly, but she will never be friends with the vacuum cleaner. She grooms often so her fur is soft and shiny. She seems comfortable around cats, dogs, and everyone she meets. Raven’s sweet, easy-going nature makes her the “purrfect” roommate.

Raven is currently living in a foster home, so please fill out an application if you are interested in meeting her. She comes to you fixed, vaccinated, micro-chipped (and with a recent dental and bloodwork!) for an adoption fee of $80.

Snow white, snow bright — I think Snow is quite alright! I am Snow, the sweetest 9-month-old boy kitty who is looking for a quiet and loving home that I can cozy up in. When I first came in, I was pretty bashful and unsure about new people. Now that I’ve been here a little while, I’m learning that Pixie is a really nice place to be, and I’ve really opened up to show my how utterly adoring I am. I will usually purr as soon as someone reaches in to pet me and I’m coming out more and more to play and interact with new people. I’m a very rolly-poly boy with soft, thick fur that resembles a fresh blanket of snow — hence my name! Even though I’m young and definitely have a playful side, I’m overall very mellow for my age and will probably do best in a quieter home without too much activity. I grew up with other cats around and could probably acclimate to a home with other animals and respectful children as long as I was given enough time to gain my confidence in a new environment, just like I’ve done here at the shelter. Looking for a perfect kitty for “chill” time at home? I think I’m your guy! Stop by Pixie today and say hello! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Lady Lisa here! I’m a beautiful and petite little one-year-old tabby girl that is excited to meet you! I came in to Pixie as a young mom with two little kittens who’ve since found their new home — now I’m ready to find mine! I am an extremely social and active little kitty. When people walk by me, I’ll often reach my little paw out and ask for a string toy to chase! I had to spend a good part of my kitten-hood being a mom, so I still have a ton of playful kitten energy left in me. When playtime is over, I’m ready for some serious snuggles. I’m a pretty floppy kitty and don’t mind being handled and held. I haven’t shown that I’m a huge fan of other kitties but since I’m young and so social I could probably learn to live around them in the right home. I seem pretty curious about dogs and am fantastic with children so I think I’d do great in most any home — as long as there are people around to play, pet, and snuggle all day long! Looking for a darling little kitty like me? Stop by Pixie today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and microchipped for an adoption fee of $100.

They call me Spike, Lady Spike! I am a 6 year old happy go lucky Chihuahua mix weighing in at 7lbs. Why the name you ask? Well because even though I am so small, I have so much confidence and am not afraid to run up to new doggy pals or my new human friends and give them face kisses! I do excellent on my daily walks and really enjoy them. I would be a great little hiking companion or maybe just a nice long walk in Forest Park. Either way is fine by me! I also have a hoot playing and romping around with with my doggy pals.  And those kitties are ok too! After a long day of being active with all my friends, I am ready to snuggle the night away in your lap. After a face full of kisses of course! I am such a happy, athletic, and fun loving pup with lots and lots of love to give! Are you ready to receive it?! Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to spayed, vaccinated, up to date dental, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.
