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!

Hello everyone! My name is Tris and I am a gorgeous 4 year old German Shepherd. I am a very smart gal with all the basics under my belt. From potty and crate training, to basic obedience classes, I love learning more and am very food motivated. I am currently in the city and there is a lot going on here, and would much prefer a quieter suburb or more rural environment with lots of space to run around and stretch my legs. And also playing my favorite game-fetch! The red ball pictured is my favorite. After a day of activity, I am ready to settle in and cuddle the night away with my favorite human friends over 15. I love being the center of attention and need to be the only animal in the home. I am a sweet intelligent city girl yearning for that country life. Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Hi! Hello! Hi! My name is Prince and I am a bouncy energetic 2 year old Jack Russell mix. At around 12 lbs, I may be small, but I LOVE being active and would be a great hiking companion. Being a youngster, I still need to learn some of the basics. But I am a quick learner with a love of food and working, so I am bound to pick up on things quickly. OBEDIENCE CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I do enjoying playing with my puppy pals. I can be quite exuberant though and would prefer to have a younger pal with the same energy level. Toys are kind of still new to me. I really enjoy them, but don’t understand them just yet. Maybe you can teach all about fetch! I do wonderful on walks and would be excited to accompany you on camping trips or any other adventures we may have. Because of my hyperness, I would prefer an owned home with a nice yard to run around in with my human pals over 15, who are interested in helping me train! I am a sweet, active boy ready to explore the world. Want to join me? Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Oh hi! My name is Rufus and I am a scruffy, lovable Lhasa mix. At 8 years young, I am still quite spunky and do like my daily walks outside. I can’t see very well though and do tend to bump into things, but with you by my side, I am happy and confident you will lead the way! I do have some eye drops that I will need to keep on doing for awhile. I wasn’t a big fan at first, but they make me feel better-plus, the treats make it all totally worth it! I seem to be indifferent to other dogs and cats. I would do best in an adult only owned home with not a lot of stairs to navigate. Just a quiet place to retire, run around the yard, and get lots of cuddles from my favorite people. Sound like your ideal time too? Then fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet! Up for adoption or foster, I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

You don’t need to a call 1-800 to know your future is full and love and happiness-from me of course! Hi everyone, Miss Cleo here. From the cards, I can gather that we are meant to be! You see, I am 9 year old hound mix weighing in around 20lbs. I am quite the spunky senior lady and I love going for my daily walks. And I just ADORE my humans pals over 8 and all other animals that I meet along the way! Being the mellow gal that I am, snuggling is my go to activity of course, but I do get super perky and excited for moments of activity: whether it’s a brief hike or car ride too! I’m such a sweetheart and have a huge heart of love to give to you. Since I am older gal, I would need to be with a family that is home fairly often, so I can have my potty breaks. It is written in the stars that we are meant to be! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, up to date dental, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

“Zip-a-Dee Doo Dah, Zip-a-Dee-Day, my, oh, my what a glorious day!” That’s my theme song, you know. After all, my name is Doo Dah and I am such a happy fellow! I am a 4 year old Chihuahua mix with a big heart. No, really! I have a very managed congenital heart defect, but it doesn’t bother me at all. Just allows me to give you more love! I am just little less zippy and more into cuddling. In fact, my foster says sometimes you can even find me curled up in the laundry basket or burrow under the blankies. I can be a little shy at first, but open up quickly with some patience and a few treats. Since I enjoy a laid back lifestyle, I am looking for a quiet home with older kids over 13. I enjoy being around my dog and cat friends, and wouldn’t mind have some furry companions in the home with me. I am definitely a Netflix and chill kind of guy. Anyone up for some musicals? Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Hut, hut, hike! Are you ready for some football? I know I am! The name is Tank and I am a 5 year old pitbull mix and 80 lbs of love. I may not look it, but I am quite the modest fellow. Being a star player, I love my adoring fans and playing the sport. Especially some football on the beach! But overall, I am not much for being in the limelight and I really need a quiet, calm, and low key owned home. Through my tough look, I am a sensitive soul who really enjoys routine and cuddles after a nice game of fetch or walk around the block. I am for sure a team player and enjoying hanging out with fellow doggy pals and humans over the age of 10. No cats in my home please! I’m just a big lug whose style is more of a relaxed pace with lots of cuddles with an occasional romp around session or even a nice long walk. Are you ready to join my team? Put me in couch, I am ready to play! Fill out an application, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

All hail the King! Just kidding. I am still more of “king in training” if you know what I mean. After all, I am only about 9-10 months old! You might notice I have a cast. Well the Pixie staff don’t know much about my history or why it happened, but I do have a broken leg. It’s been all re-set and re-cast, but I will still need to be in it for a few more weeks. Which as you can imagine, as a young pup at 7 lbs, it’s hard for me not to be so energetic! But my foster mom says I am doing so well at relaxing on the couch and casually hanging with the other pups in the house. Since I have to stay low key for a little while longer, I would need to be in adult only owned home for a bit. Just until I can get all recovered and get some basic classes under my belt. PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I would do well with other younger dogs who like to play (eventually) and I am little too interested in those kitties, so none in my home please! Cute, funny, and so very sweet, I am ready for someone to help me graduate from prince to King of the Portland kingdom. Will it be you?! Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you  vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

 Need a little spice in your life?! How about you just add a little Pepper? Hey, that’s me! At 15 years old, just like those yummy jalapenos, I get spicier and yummier with time. I am a simple guy who the finer things in life: mangoes, sleeping, and belly rubs. In fact, I just discovered what the human bed is like at my foster’s house and boy, what a game changer! This is typically where you can find me: flipped on my back, tongue hanging out, and snoozing the day away under the darkness and warmth of the blankets. I do still get the occasionally zoomies! Those 6.5 minutes take it out of me for the day and its back to snuggles. I am pretty indifferent to other animals in the home so another chill cat would be fine by me, but I would prefer to be the only dog star of your life. Since I am in retirement, I would love a nice quiet adult only home. Hilarious, cuddly, and so darn cute- a little dash of me is sure to liven up your life! Want to give it a try? Fill out an application today. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, neutered, and up to date dental with an adoption fee of $200.
