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 there, my name is Socks! My name may not be original, but I sure am! I’m a beautiful and sweet blue and white tuxedo girl with silky soft fur and a lovey-dovey purrsonality. I’ve lived with other kitties before, but am also okay as a one-and-only kitty. I’m pretty easy going and am most interested in getting love and lap time! I’ve lived inside my whole life and don’t really have any interest in going out. Besides, it’s cold outside! Are you looking for soft, warm Socks to keep you toasty this winter? Come by Pixie and let’s get acquainted! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Bunny would do very well in a quiet home, with an owner who likes to read, knit, or sits still for an hour or two daily with a very soft cat in their lap!  Bunny is the softest, most snuggly lap-cat ever.  She is very affectionate.  Bunny will literally jump into my arms to be held over my left shoulder (only the left will do), and will happily drool down my back as I hold and pet her.  It is the easiest way to brush her: she loves to be held and get brushed.  Even at 8 years old, she still loves string chasing, and will occasionally chase a laser, but is suspicious of the trick.  She does not like a  lot of noise or commotion, and she is pretty quiet herself – meeps more than meows.  She is a mostly indoor cat, but does occasionally visit my back porch to stare down the squirrels.
Please contact if you are interested in her!

Well hello there — I’m Prince, the charming gentleman waiting to rescue you from a lifetime of catlessness! I’m a big and outrageously friendly man who lived the first 6 years of my life around lots of other kitties, so I’m very social! I’m currently in the cattery at The Pixie Project, and have become kind of an uncle to the little wild kittens sharing the space with me. If I can tolerate them, I think I can handle just about anything! I’m a big cuddler and love to rub on people and purr so loud you can hear me across the room. Since I’m so social, I’d really like to have another kitty buddy around and wouldn’t want to be left alone too long. Are you in search of a royal feline friend such as myself? Come on down to Pixie to meet me! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for a fee of $100.

Scully-1Yarr Mateys!! Captain Scully here ready to set sail to the high seas to find my golden treasure-a new place to call home! I am a 2.5 year old corgi/hound mix with a love of adventure. Climb aboard me ship as we explore the seven wonders of Oregon! I am energetic and playful mate with a love of toys and socializing with the other pups of me crew. Even those pesky felines can hop aboard the S.S. Loyal Canine! After a life on the quiet seas,  I am not used to all the hustle and bustle of the big city and a quiet low-key home with no kids would be the pirate’s life for me. But I am an energetic and playful captain and enjoy my daily walks in the great outdoors or some nice ball time in the yard too! Care to join me in my quest to seek the treasure that is my heart?! Then fill out an application today, so we can pilot this ship called life together! I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

chloe-2chloe-1Hi world! My name is Chloe and I am a sweet and affectionate yellow lab. At 9 years young, I am a healthy, well socialized lady just looking for my forever home! Aren’t I just beautiful? Can you believe both my parents were chocolate labs?! So I am super unique! I just love to cuddle after a long day of exploring. I enjoy going for my daily walks as well as playing with my puppy pals! I have been around kids my whole life and just adore being around them. They are full of snuggles and treats. My two favorite things! You too?! Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Hi everyone! They call me Little Larry. I guess you can say I’m like a mini cattle dog mix weighing in at only 25 lbs at 11 months old. Don’t let my serious face fool you, I am quite the fun guy and have a great medium energy that keeps me active and cuddly! As a young guy, I am a very quick learner and am already crate trained! I would love to learn more though, as PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I enjoy my daily walks with the Pixie volunteers and already walk really well on leash! I could do without all this rain though-Ha! I enjoy playing with toys and love to play with my puppy pals I have met here. I also enjoy meeting all humans over the age of 10 and even those kitties too! Even though I am little guy, I am full of spunk with a big personality and an even bigger heart just waiting to see where my next adventure will take me. Want to come with? Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Badgley is a sweet kitty that loves people, cats and dogs! She is 10 years old but acts like a kitten as she is still very active, but of course loves her cat naps. She will talk to you if you’d like to have a conversation and she’ll cuddle you too (with an occasional love bite 😉 ).  We are looking to rehome her as she was my mother’s cat. We will charge a very nominal adoption fee to make sure she goes to a good home. We’ll also provide you with food, litter, a litter box, a bed and toys. Everyone that meets her loves her and I’m sure you will too!
