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! I’m Susan. I’m a 2-year-old, female, long-haired cat. I am very frisky but love naps as much as the next cat. I want to explore the outdoors and have a nice warm bed to cuddle up in at night. I’m a bit anxious around strangers and need a home that doesn’t have a lot of people coming and going. I have lived in a home with other cats and children successfully. But I might like a place without either for my next home, as I enjoy being the center of attention. If you are looking for a queenly beauty with a playful side, then call my current owner and find out how to adopt me! I am spayed, litter box trained, have all my shots, and am FIV-negative. I also need someone who can brush my fluffy fur and keep it free of matts.

If you think you might want to adopt me, my current caretaker Rhea will ask you a few questions and set up an appointment for us to meet. Contact or call 503-234-8996.

Hi! Hi! My name is Jeremy and I am bouncy and full of fun 11 month old Chihuahua/Terrier mix. Weighing in at 12lbs, I may be small, but I am ready to take on the world! I have lots and lots of that fun puppy energy that keeps me going and I would be a great little active companion for hikes! Just need to learn some of those basics first, as PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! But I am very smart and food driven, which makes me a quick learner! I am social guy who is ready to play with anyone from my human pals over 12 to my young puppy pals. No kitties in my home please! I really enjoy playing with my squeaker toys, though fetch seems to be a foreign concept. I just like taking the toy and running! Ha! I am a hilarious little bundle of energy who is ready to explore and play, and pass out on your lap at the end of a long active day. I really am a hoot! Fill out an application today, so we can get to started on that play! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

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. And being so new to this loud and scary city, I have a hard time getting used to all the traffic. That is why I am looking for a foster home! Because of my sensitivities, 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! I need to be in a quiet owned home, with both low foot and car traffic with another confident dog buddy and no kids or cats.  I just know I will blossom into this spunky and confident guy in no time! Available for adoption and foster, I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300. Fill out an application today or email Pixie for information on fostering me!

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.

“I’m sweet. I’m cute. I’m popular to boot! I’m playful. Have great hair. Everyone loves to stare!” I just can’t help but bust into my cheerleader rhymes, as I am the most cheerful and happy gal you will ever meet! My name is Tasha and I am 2 year old shepherd mix weighing in at about 65lbs.  While I can be quite bouncy, I do enjoy some one on one cuddle time with my favorite human friends. But then it is back to our next adventure: will it be a walk around the block? playing fetch in the backyard? Or will it be hanging out with another playful pup in the yard? All options are fine by me! I have wonderful doggy play pals at Pixie, though no cats in my home please. I am a very smart gal and do need to work on some of the basics. But with some patience and some treats, you will find I am a very quick learner! The downtown city is a little too busy for me, so I would need an owned home in a quieter neighborhood. Because of my big jumps and bounces, I do need to be in an adult only home with no kids. “I’m cool. I’m fly. So beautiful you might just cry. I’m energetic. I’m fun. Will I be your number one?” Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Straight from Shanghai and right into your heart, is me-PeePee! I am a sweet, adorable 2 year old Shiba Inu/Chow mix. At 43lbs, I am a solid and fun gal who is ready to go outside and explore all the sights and smells. Whether it’s a nice hike in Forest Park or just a trip around the block, I am always up for going out.  I do excellent on car rides, so loading me up and taking a nice trip to the beach is fine by me! I am a very social gal, though as times, I do like to be independent and kind of do my own thing. I do enjoy playing with my favorite tug toys in the backyard and do like to play fetch as well! Though I am not extra snuggly, I am a very affectionate and rewarding pup. And don’t forget smart too, as I am already potty trained and eager to learn more of the basics! I do great with other dogs, but no kitties in my home please. I am a pretty chill gal and really just looking for a nice quiet adult only home owned by my adopters to settle in to. Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

My name is Missy — the sweet and adorable 1 & 1/2 year old girl kitty who is the perfect fit to almost any family! Ever since I came to Pixie, I’ve shown off my great personality and have already made many friends — human and feline alike! I’m a typical young, playful, outgoing girl and I’m usually the first one to greet anyone who ventures into the Pixie cattery to say hello. I usually start any conversation by rubbing up against your legs, purring, and then rolling over on my back and waiting for pets! Then I might give an adorable little chirp and ask you to play! I’m extremely tolerant of children and other animals — even rambunctious kittens. I’m in perfect health and don’t have any special needs, so I’d say I’m pretty low-maintenance. I’m snuggly, I’m sweet, and I’m single! Interested in meeting me? Stop by Pixie today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

“Oh, Mickey — you’re so fine, you blow my mind!” My name is Mickey and when people meet me, they can’t help but sing! Not only am I handsome as can be, I’m also a total character and — of course — a complete gentleman. I am about 8 years old and love just about everyone. I’m like the cool uncle in the Pixie cattery — I like to welcome the new guys, groom the youngin’s, and generally just be the cool cat that everyone comes to love. I’ve already had a dental and the doctor says I’m in great health. That being said, something that adds to my character is that I’m almost completely blind. It doesn’t really affect me though — most people who meet me don’t even notice at first! I get around just fine and am still really good at finding your lap as soon as you sit down! I’m just a mellow middle-aged man who gets along swimmingly with people old and young, other cats of all ages, and dogs as well. Are you looking for a fine Mickey like me? Come by Pixie today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, micro-chipped (and with a recent dental already done!) for an adoption fee of $100.
