Over the past 7 years, The Pixie Project has grown from a one room rescue operating out of the back of a doggie daycare into a 5,000 square foot full fledged animal shelter that can house 18 dogs and 20 cats. We have found homes for almost two thousand animals through our adoption programs and have helped over 3,000 homeless and low income pet owners with access to low cost and free veterinary care as well as spay and neuter services.

Despite all that we have accomplished, we feel like we are just getting started.  With the addition of our surgery suite our clinic program is really taking off and every day new vets and vet techs are signing up to donate their time to help the animals in our community who need it most.

We are also so happy to say that in response to our supply and demand problem – we have way more loving wonderful families looking for pooches than we have dogs in the shelter – we will be adding six more dog kennels to our shelter over the next few months!

 If there was one drawback about this incredible growth it would be that I feel less connected to the people who make Pixie what it is.  We have a massive network of people committed to helping us, and I love you all for your heart and passion.  It’s because of this that I want to start this BLOG.  I hope it can be the start of a conversation about Pixie, about animal training, a place to celebrate rescue successes and a place for you to ask questions and get non-judgmental answers.  We want to create a conversation around rescue and the amazing pets and people that make this the best job ever!

I can’t wait to communicate more with all of you and I encourage you to do the same with us here at the Pixie Project.
