In addition to providing amazing adoption services, The Pixie Project runs a low-cost veterinary clinic. The Scott Wainner Pixie Care Clinic offers low income and homeless pet owners access to vital veterinary care.

Keeping Pets and People Together!

Over the last year, the Pixie Project has increased the number of surgeries performed by more than 5 times. A skilled team of high-volume veterinarians and vet techs can now perform twenty surgeries during our once-a-week surgery day. These surgeries are a combination of spay/neuter and emergency services, including dental extractions, amputations, mass removals, and other life-saving surgeries.

Our goal is not only to prevent overpopulation through easy access to spay/neuter surgeries, but to keep beloved pets in their existing homes. When pet owners fall on hard times (including, in many cases, seniors living on social security) they may not be able to afford a necessary surgery at a traditional vet, forcing them to surrender their beloved companion to already over-full shelters or consider euthanasia. Many of these animals are seniors themselves who have very limited adoption opportunities. Pixie is able to help keep these owners and pets together by performing affordable surgeries and assisting with medications.

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 small but dedicated staff is committed to the art of match-making 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 provides low-cost spay/neuter services and veterinary care, 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 we may have to search for a while before your canine or feline soul-mate arrives. We promise, it will be worth the wait!

Pooh 3

Why hullo there! It’s me Pooh!  Your squishable, lovable, huggable American Bulldog/Pit mix!  I am a teddy bear of a dog who is great with all people and other animals including cats, piglets, tigers, owls, donkeys, and of course other dogs! I have great leash skills and will be a wonderful friend for neighborhood adventures whether it’s getting honey out of the bees nest or chasing away the heffalumps and woozles! I am your brave and loyal companion.  Because of my breed it’s best I go into an owned home.  Let’s read bedtime stories together!  To schedule a meet fill out the adoption application.  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped, my adoption fee is $250.

billy 1

Hello, my name is Billie! I’m a male 3 year old Terrier/Chihuahua mix looking for a home that will love me and keep me safe.  You know, safe from sharks… zombies… giant man-eating squirrels… Ok, so I’m a bit of a worrier, it’s something I’m working on and could really use a confident role model. I’m super snuggly and LOVE to play.  I would love to play with your dogs, cats and older kids, just as long as we can stay out of the ocean, and away from possible avalanches, erupting volcanoes and crop circles… Oh bother, there I go again! If you give me a try you will be rewarded with all the love and affection I can offer (which is a LOT!), there are just some confidence boosting quirks to help me get through at the beginning.  Can we work on it together? Fill out the adoption application so we can schedule a meet and greet.  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $250.

– THIS DOG IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT DINAH OR TONI BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION –

We would like to introduce Mace, who just arrived in Portland from Kaua`i and is searching for his forever home.  After Mace spent several months in Kaua`i’s high euthanasia rate shelter, Kaua`i Animal Welfare Society took in Mace and decided he would be a great Portland dog.  Mace is a 4-5 year old hound/retriever/shepherd mix, and weighs in at about 55 lbs., though he could stand to gain a few more pounds.  He is a mellow fellow, and does well with other dogs, both big and small.  He tends to have a calming effect on both dogs and humans.  This boy is a sweet, gentle giant who would love nothing more than to be by your side.  He enjoys relaxing in the cool grass and taking in the sights.  Up until recently, his life was one of being chained up with little exposure to the outside world.  He would do well in a home where there is another, more outgoing dog to help him gain his confidence, and humans who give him the love and security he had been missing until he was rescued.  This affectionate boy would do well in a home with or without children.  Mace is a medium to low energy dog, so a walk around the neighborhood twice a day and the occasional visit to the dog park will keep him content. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.  If you would like to know more about Mace, please email Dinah at:dinahchao@gmail.com, or call Toni at Dogtribe doggy daycare at: 503-238-0737.

Frieda 2

Are you looking for the world’s most lovable, huggable, adorable cat? Look no further!  With me by your side you will never be lonely again.  At 2 years old I live for snuggles and even give little butterfly kisses.  I’m a head-bump extraordinaire who also likes to watch the bees from the garden window.  I do well with other animals and kids. As long as there is love to go around I am a happy girl!  Do I sound like just the kitty you have been searching for?  Fill out the adoption application so we can schedule a meet and greet!  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $100.  I am currently living in foster care.
