Welcome to the Pixie Project! We are a non-profit animal adoption center and rescue located in the heart of Portland. We are here to make animal adoption and rescue a fun, family friendly and positive experience. The small but dedicated staff here at the Pixie Project are committed to the art of match making between pet and person and take a hands on personal approach to each and every adoption.

We are so committed to helping those great homes in search of the perfect rescue dog that many times our available animals don’t even make it up on the website because as soon as they come in we know just who would love them!

We ask that all those looking for animals honor the process and the that it might take a bit of time to find that perfect animal but it’s well worth it.

PLEASE DON’T BE DISCOURAGED if you don’t see a dog or cat that fits what you hope to find. Just come on down and fill out an application and talk with us today!

I love to play with toys, love to eat snacks and I love a good friend by my side. What do you think of my costume? I’m trying to go for the damsel in distress look. I’m not in distress but I’m definitely a damsel. I’ve been looking for a forever home these days. Are you looking for a nice, sweet girl like me? I’d do great in a family environment or a single home. Come and sweep this damsel off her feet at The Pixie Project. I’m spayed, current on vaccines and microchipped. adoption fee $250. XOXO

Kiki Aloha (1)

Hi I’m Kiki! 3 years old, a Beagle/Dachshund mix and adorable as can be. I just moved here from Hawaii and let me tell you, I’m in love! The trees! The grass! The flowers! It was love at first sight. They sure don’t make em like this on the island. I catch myself day dreaming about the next patch of grass I’ll roll around in or the next flower I’ll sniff. I’ve made a lot of cat and dog friends already and turns out the like to stop and smell the roses too! I’m from a small town in Hawaii so I’m a bit shy at times. Still getting used to a big city ya know? Let’s find a pile of leaves and jump in! Contact to meet me. I’m spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee $250.  See you soon! YIPPY!
